Ancon Hammer in Tie
The Ancon Hammer-in Tie (HiT) is a fast and effective way of tying brickwork to concrete panels.
Use of the Ancon HiT reduces the variety of tie lengths required on site and speeds the rate of construction. It is available in a standard length of 310mm that suits all cavities up to 150mm and, unlike a conventional frame cramp, it does not require a mechanical fixing. The installation is simple: just drill, plug, hammer and bend to the correct length.
Once the plug is installed in the concrete, the Ancon HiT is inserted into a special installation tool, leaving its threaded end exposed. The tool is hammered until it is flush with the concrete, locating the thread in the plug. A neoprene ‘O’ ring is installed on the tie to prevent moisture crossing the cavity. Using the same tool and ensuring adequate embedment is achieved in the outer leaf, the tie is bent parallel to the brickwork.
The Ancon HiT has been independently tested and meets the requirements of DD140 as a Type 2 tie.
When forming a cross brace using tie bars, the new Ancon Cross Coupler offers a streamlined alternative to an anchor disc.
