Ancon Gauge Tape
Eliminate inaccurate coursing and fix frame cramps in advance of masonry with Ancon Gauge Tape.
Ancon Gauge Tape features the standard 225mm brick/block gauge and clearly indicates the fixing position of frame cramps.
The tape is applied directly to the structural frame. It provides a visual reference that eliminates inaccurate coursing and can improve the quality of external brickwork.
Use of the tape can also accelerate the speed of construction. It allows frame cramps to be fixed at accurate vertical centres for the full height of an elevation in advance of the masonry. Pre-fixing frame cramps allows bricklayers to concentrate on their trade and is recognised to increase work rate. It also enables a pre-build check that wall restraints are located correctly and securely fixed.
Whole sections of masonry can be raised without time consuming re-adjustments. More than one elevation can be worked on simultaneously, increasing productivity and resulting in faster weatherproof structures.
The tape is hardwearing and waterproof. It is produced on high quality laminated film and supplied in rolls of 33 metres.
Ancon is the exclusive distributor of this patented product (pre-fix patent no. 2 256 223).
