Stone Restraints - Buddhist Temple, New York, USA
Ancon fixings have been used to restrain the stone cladding of a Buddhist Temple located in the Catskill Mountains, New York State.
The 13,000ft2 temple is based on a traditional design and has three levels of ornate stonework. Features include carvings, arches and pillars and are produced in stones varying in size and thickness.
Restraints for stonework are easily specified with dowels or lips and wire ties are available for the fixing of thin marble.
The Kadampa Buddhist Temple is the second of its type in the western world; the first (pictured) is situated in the grounds of Conishead Priory, Cumbria UK.
Restraints should be designed to resist wind loads and any imposed loads from, for example, window cleaning equipment.
We are delighted to announce that we will be sponsoring a Bear for the 2021 ‘Bears of Sheffield’ sculpture trail, a unique participative public art event that will raise funds for a new, urgently needed, Cancer and Leukaemia ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
Designed to minimise thermal bridging in masonry cavity walls, the patented Ancon Thermal Windpost (TWP2) from Leviat offers up to an impressive 70% reduction in thermal transmission through the span of the windpost.
