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.

The health, safety and wellbeing of all those who work with us and for us, as well as the general public, is always our No. 1 priority.
From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
