Ancon exhibited solutions to heat loss in buildings at Ecobuild 2012
Ancon joined other leading manufacturers of sustainable, energy-efficient construction solutions and showcased its range at Ecobuild 2012. If you were unable to make it, we will also be exhibiting at Greenbuild Expo on 9-10th May 2012.
Stand number N1110 addressed the important issue of heat loss through thermal bridging. It featured Ancon’s extensive range of low thermal conductivity cavity wall ties, which includes the unique basalt-fibre TeploTie.
Also on display was a range of Thermal Breaks for use at other locations where the insulated building envelope is interrupted, such as balconies and brickwork support brackets. Each Ancon product that was exhibited is an innovative, yet cost-effective and practical, means of improving the thermal performance of a structure.
This year's stand saw the launch of the new Staifix ISF18A; a high integrity, fire-proof, mechanical fixing for securing drywall and insulated plasterboard panels to walls. The fixing has a countersunk dished head, which retains the filler and a thermally-efficient spiral shaft, which minimises heat loss.
Ancon was joined on stand N1110 by Ibstock, the UK’s leading brick manufacturer. This Ancon-Ibstock alliance, specifically for Ecobuild 2012, brought together two areas of expertise from within the masonry sector. Brick is the UK’s most popular cladding material by some margin, and this collaboration provided visitors with an opportunity to discuss project performance and aesthetics on a single exhibition stand.
Many of Ancon's high integrity fixings are engineered from stainless steel which has a lower thermal conductivity than other metals and is 100% recyclable at the end of a long, maintenance-free service life. Brick also offers exceptional sustainability credentials including a 150 year life, combined with thermal mass and cost benefits over other building systems.

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.
