Senior Engineer, Jeff Edwards explores an issue that has become common knowledge in the construction industry, that designed thermal performance figures for cavity wall constructions are rarely achieved under actual site conditions. He lets us in on how his passion for addressing this 'performance gap' resulted in the creation of the revolutionary Ancon Thermal Windpost (TWP2). Read more
Ancon Teplo wall ties comprise pultruded basalt fibres set in a resin matrix which offers a thermal conductivity of just 0.7W/mK. The thermal efficiency of this innovative material means these ties are excluded from U-value calculations to BS EN ISO 6946, minimising insulation thickness and wall footprint. Read more
Energy efficiency is becoming increasingly important in today’s building designs and the thermal performance of the insulated building envelope is a key design consideration. Read more
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.
