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.
Construction industry remains open. Manufacturing at Leviat continues through latest national lockdown.
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.
