Ancon Corner Guards offer protection to the exposed edges of columns and walls in areas of high traffic.
They are manufactured in either stainless steel, galvanised steel or untreated mild steel. Stainless steel provides the greatest corrosion resistance and, where aesthetics are important, can be supplied with a satin-polished surface finish.
Two standard angle sizes suit the majority of applications; both sizes can be manufactured for either casting-in or surface-fixing.
When a secure anchorage in concrete is required, wavy-tailed U-shaped lugs are welded to the reverse of the guard. The profile of these lugs has been designed to avoid clashes with reinforcing bars and to aid concrete flow.
Ancon is a proud sponsor of the 6th UK DISC (Developments in Structural Concrete) Conference, taking place at the Institution of Structural Engineers in London, on 29 November 2018.
Ancon’s recently-extended head office in Sheffield is now home to a unique piece of wall art, thanks to the artistic talents of one of its employees.
