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.
Ancon manufactures three products which provide continuity of reinforcement across construction joints in concrete.
