Ancon at Ecobuild 2011, Stand Number S1210
Ancon Building Products joined other leading manufacturers of sustainable, energy-efficient construction solutions and showcased its products at ECOBUILD, Excel London, 1st to 3rd March 2011.
Stand number S1210 addressed important issues such as thermal bridging. It featured a range of low thermal conductivity wall ties and thermal breaks at junctions such as balconies and masonry support brackets.
In addition to Ancon’s stainless steel wire wall ties, the range includes the BBA-approved TeploTie. The innovative Ancon TeploTie is manufactured from basalt fibres and has a thermal conductivity of just 0.7W/mK.
Ancon’s low conductivity range is manufactured in a variety of lengths to suit cavities from 50mm to 300mm, so even the most super-insulated homes can be built using traditional cavity wall construction methods. Visit www.ancon.co.uk/LowConductor for more information.
Isolan connectors join external concrete balconies to internal concrete floor slabs. Used to minimise cold bridging, this system provides continuity to the thermal insulation of the building envelope.
Many of Ancon’s products are fabricated from stainless steel; this material has an approximate 60% recycled content, a lower thermal conductivity than carbon steel and is 100% recyclable at the end of a long, low maintenance service life.
Teplo-BFR is an innovative basalt-fibre wall tie that features a plain end for resin anchoring into an existing structure and a moulded safety end for building into a new bed joint.
Nexus, the next generation of brick-faced support systems developed through a collaboration between Ibstock Kevington and Ancon, is the first of its kind to achieve British Board of Agrément (BBA) certification for both soffits and lintels.
