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.
Reinforcement Continuity Systems
The use of Ancon Reinforcing Bar Couplers can simplify the design and construction of reinforced concrete and reduce the amount of reinforcement required.
Reinforcing Bar Couplers
Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.

Head Restraints provide simple support to the top of a masonry panel by transferring lateral load (usually wind or internal pressure load) from the masonry to the primary structure, whilst allowing some vertical movement in the frame in relation to the top of the wall.
Ancon is pleased to announce that it has successfully transitioned its Quality and Environmental Management Systems to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 respectively, well ahead of the September 2018 industry deadline.
Now available in lengths of 325mm and 350mm, the Ancon ST1 wall tie range has been extended to suit high-rise masonry buildings with insulated cavities up to 225mm wide.
