Ancon exhibiting at Tall Buildings Conference 2019
Ancon will be exhibiting at the Tall Buildings Conference on Tuesday 30th April at 99 City Road in London, where we will showcase a range of engineered fixing systems specifically for high-rise concrete frame construction.
Under the spotlight at this event will be two new products, the KSN Anchor Box and the CB Coupler Box; both systems simplify slab-to-wall concrete connections which in this sector can significantly accelerate the speed of construction.
Ancon KSN Anchor Box
Where slab-to-wall joints are subjected to a combination of shear and tensile loads, Ancon now recommends its KSN Anchor Box; a single row of internally-threaded anchors cast into the wall along the slab section centreline, ready to accept Ancon threaded reinforcing bars to complete the connection.
This cost-effective and innovative Ancon construction detail is accompanied by a four-step EC2-compliant design method that has been independently verified by the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK.
Ancon CB Coupler Box
The Ancon CB Coupler Box reinforcement continuity system utilises the CARES-approved CXL mechanical bar splicing system. Double rows of CXL Couplers can now be installed quickly and easily in a wall in a single metal unit. On construction of the slab, the couplers accept Ancon threaded continuation bars ready for lapping to the main slab reinforcement.
A standard range of CB Coupler Boxes is now available to suit 12, 16 and 20mm bar diameters.
Alongside these new products, there will be the opportunity to talk to Ancon’s technical representatives about the recently enhanced Shearfix punching shear reinforcement design program and your specific project requirements.

As we all change the way we are working, Ancon has extended its technical services offering to include ‘on demand’ webinars enabling those of you practicing social distancing, while working at home or back in the office, to keep on top of your professional development.
Tuesday 23rd June 2020 is the globally celebrated International Women in Engineering Day (INWED). Ancon will be honouring its female engineers by getting to know some of them a little better and sharing their experiences with you.
