Bridge Cappings & Supports - Channel Tunnel Rail Link, UK
Bridge Cappings and Supports
Ancon fabricated stainless steel bridge cappings and all associated support brackets for bridges running across the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
Each capping was supplied in a perforated pattern and had a special polished finish to its exposed face. Technical advice was provided by Ancon on the suitability of the specified surface finish, the design of the cappings and the selection of specialist anti-tamper fixings.
The fabrication of decorative bridge cappings demands the use of a durable material with an aesthetic surface finish. Stainless steel was specified for its maintenance-free life and resistance to unsightly staining.
Ancon is a specialist fabricator and has a wealth of experience in working with a range of types and grades of stainless steel.
Innovative and quick-to-install reinforcing bar couplers from Ancon replace time-consuming lapped joints and minimise reinforcement congestion in the gigantic concrete superstructure of Europe’s tallest building; the 87-floor, 462m high helicoidal Lakhta Tower in St. Petersburg.
Ancon is pleased to announce it has become one of the first businesses to transition its Occupational Health and Safety Management (OHS) to the new International standard ISO 45001:2018.
