Industry Experts Admire Ancon’s Innovation
Two new products from Ancon are among a select group of innovations being showcased by the Construction Products Association.
Each year the CPA’s ‘Modern Materials and Components’ publication features products that demonstrate how manufacturers are helping to achieve the Egan objectives. The 2003 edition showcases twenty-two new products that have been judged by a panel of experts to improve safety on site, speed construction times and reduce maintenance costs.
The two Ancon products receiving recognition are the Ancon 25/14 Channel System, that ties brickwork to steel columns, and the Ancon Steelgrip, that blind fixes masonry support systems to hollow steel sections. The latter was Highly Commended by the judges.
Teplo-BFR is an innovative basalt-fibre wall tie that features a plain end for resin anchoring into an existing structure and a moulded safety end for building into a new bed joint.
Nexus, the next generation of brick-faced support systems developed through a collaboration between Ibstock Kevington and Ancon, is the first of its kind to achieve British Board of Agrément (BBA) certification for both soffits and lintels.
