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.
Innovative and quick-to-install reinforcing bar couplers from Ancon replace time-consuming lapped joints and minimise reinforcement congestion in the gigantic concrete superstructure of Europe’s tallest building; the 87-floor, 462m high helicoidal Lakhta Tower in St. Petersburg.
Ancon is pleased to announce it has become one of the first businesses to transition its Occupational Health and Safety Management (OHS) to the new International standard ISO 45001:2018.
