Ancon AMR Masonry Reinforcement
Ancon AMR is a steel reinforcement system that locates in the bed joint to strengthen masonry panels without thickening the wall.
The longitudinal steel wires are flattened to less than 3mm to ensure good mortar cover is maintained, even when lapped or used with wall ties. Cross wires are welded in the same plane.
Available in various standard configurations, the Ancon AMR suits a wide range of structural load conditions and wall widths up to 215mm.
60, 100, 150, 175mm
3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0mm (equivalent diameter after flattening)
Stainless steel, Galvanised steel
Flattened to less than 3mm
AMR Masonry Reinforcement is featured in CADS Masonry Wall Panel Designer.
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.
