Fixing and support systems for industrial buildings on any scale
Concrete and masonry construction in the industrial sector can take many forms. Many large warehouses and other steel-framed structures require heavily loaded concrete floor slabs.
Products such as Ancon reinforcing bar couplers help to reduce rebar congestion at slab joints, facilitating faster, more efficient concrete pouring. Ancon masonry supports, wall ties, windposts and restraint systems are integral to any areas of brick or blockwork.
The use of Ancon Reinforcing Bar Couplers can simplify the design and construction of reinforced concrete and reduce the amount of reinforcement required.
Reinforcing Bar Couplers
Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.
Shear Load Connectors
Used within a slab to provide additional reinforcement around columns, Ancon Shearfix is the ideal solution to the design and construction problems associated with punching shear.
Punching Shear Reinforcement
Tie bars are increasingly being used in structures and buildings as an architectural as well as a structural element.
Tension & Compression Systems
Brick, block or stone cladding on steel or concrete framed structures is normally supported by stainless steel masonry support systems.
Wall ties and restraint fixings are an essential element in the stability of masonry panels.
Wall Ties & Restraint Fixings
Ancon Windposts are designed to span vertically between floors to provide lateral support for panels of brickwork.

Head Restraints provide simple support to the top of a masonry panel by transferring lateral load (usually wind or internal pressure load) from the masonry to the primary structure, whilst allowing some vertical movement in the frame in relation to the top of the wall.
When forming a cross brace using tie bars, the new Ancon Cross Coupler offers a streamlined alternative to an anchor disc.
