Ancon Eazistrip: Awarded UK CARES Technical Approval
Ancon Eazistrip reinforcement continuity system can now be specified and installed with even greater confidence; Ancon Building Products is pleased to announce this product has been awarded UK CARES Technical Approval, TA2-5017.
Eazistrip is a quick and easy means of providing continuity of reinforcement at construction joints in concrete. Its use can help improve site safety and working access by minimising exposure to projecting starter bars. The system consists of pre-bent rebars, housed within a galvanised steel casing. After striking of formwork, the cover is removed and the bars straightened, ready for joining the continuation bars.
This UK CARES Technical Approval confirms Eazistrip, and its manufacturing and quality control processes have undergone extensive independent assessment and confirm Ancon’s compliance with all relevant standards; in particular it confirms Eazistrip’s suitability for use in reinforced concrete structures designed to BS8110.
Ancon is pleased to announce that it has successfully transitioned its Quality and Environmental Management Systems to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 respectively, well ahead of the September 2018 industry deadline.
Now available in lengths of 325mm and 350mm, the Ancon ST1 wall tie range has been extended to suit high-rise masonry buildings with insulated cavities up to 225mm wide.
