Intelligent fixing design for efficient, secure construction
The construction of vast shopping centres requires large areas of reinforced concrete – from foundation slabs to floors and vertical cores, as well as extensive masonry walls to help developments blend with their surroundings.
Ancon masonry fixings reinforce large areas of blockwork, as well as supporting external brick and stone cladding. Large spans are a feature of shopping centres, and Ancon shear connectors, rebar couplers and reinforcement continuity systems enable concrete floors to extend over large areas. By helping to minimise rebar congestion, these products also improve the efficiency of concrete pouring.
The £81m Great Eastern Quays scheme features an intricate façade framework of high quality brickwork, utilising the Nexus system to achieve flawless brick-faced soffits.

Everything you need to know about post-Brexit product approval regulations for construction products
As the dust settles on the UK’s Brexit negotiations, it is only now that the full implications of our break from Europe are beginning to be felt in the market. In the construction industry, the big topic right now is product standards, and, at Leviat, we are again leading the way with new approval markings across our market-leading range of Ancon stainless steel support systems.
Construction industry remains open. Manufacturing at Leviat continues through latest national lockdown.
The health, safety and wellbeing of all those who work with us and for us, as well as the general public, is always our No. 1 priority.
From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
