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
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
