Ancon at the UK Concrete Show 2011
Ancon joined other leading Industry names and showcased its products at this new national event. Ancon’s stand highlighted two new products which provide solutions for suspended and ground bearing concrete slabs.
Ancon MultiJoint is an all-in-one armoured edge protection, concrete contraction and formwork solution for ground floor slabs. A unique patented top rail protects the concrete edge from damage by wheeled traffic and built in plate dowels transfer load.
The Lockable Dowel replaces the need for pour strips at temporary movement joints in post-tensioned concrete frames, significantly increasing the rate of construction. It allows initial shrinkage of the concrete to take place before the dowel bar is locked in position with epoxy resin. It has been recognised by both the Construction Products Association and Construct Concrete Structures Group for the site efficiencies it offers.
Other products for concrete-framed structures include the Ancon DSD – the original two-part, double dowel shear connector, Shearfix punching shear reinforcement, Eazistrip reinforcement continuity systems, Isolan insulated balcony connectors and a comprehensive range of threaded and mechanically bolted reinforcing bar couplers.
Ancon is also a specialist in fabricating stainless steels, supplying bespoke fixing solutions to major civil engineering projects worldwide.
Innovative and quick-to-install reinforcing bar couplers from Ancon replace time-consuming lapped joints and minimise reinforcement congestion in the gigantic concrete superstructure of Europe’s tallest building; the 87-floor, 462m high helicoidal Lakhta Tower in St. Petersburg.
Ancon is pleased to announce it has become one of the first businesses to transition its Occupational Health and Safety Management (OHS) to the new International standard ISO 45001:2018.
