Enabling simple, rapid construction with built-in reliability
In the water industry, Ancon steel fixings for concrete and masonry are frequently specified in the construction of water-treatment plants. Many elements of these structures are partly or completely buried and require thick reinforced concrete walls to withstand the high pressures exerted on them.
Reinforcement systems and couplers from Ancon can benefit concrete designs. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel is ideally suited to this sector and special fabrications can be manufactured to suit any application at Ancon’s advanced manufacturing facilities. Simplicity and speed of installation enable programme times to be reduced, while quality-assured products provide long-life strength and durability.
Leviat manufactures six Ancon products which provide continuity of reinforcement at slab-to-wall construction joints in concrete.

The use of Ancon Reinforcing Bar Couplers can simplify the design and construction of reinforced concrete and reduce the amount of reinforcement required.

Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.

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.
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.
Construction industry remains open. Manufacturing at Leviat continues through latest national lockdown.
