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.
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.
