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
Wall Ties are an essential element in the strength and stability of cavity walls, but by crossing the cavity they act as a thermal bridge between the internal and external leaves. Generally speaking, the wider the insulated cavity, the more substantial the Wall Tie needs to be and the greater the effect the tie will then have on the U-value of the wall. Read more
Approved Document E: Resistance to the Passage of Sound specifies the requirements for Type A Wall Ties for use in internal separating walls of new-build attached dwellings. Read more
Brick support systems from Ancon can be supplied with Fire-Tested Thermal Breaks to minimise heat loss through cold bridging, and improve the energy efficiency of your building project.
Ancon has extended its technical services offering with the addition of webinars to complement a highly successful CPD-approved seminar programme of over 30 years.
