NEW: Ancon Two-Part Wall Tie for Cellular Clay Blockwork
Ancon has developed a Wall Tie to fix traditional brick cladding to an internal leaf of cellular clay blocks with horizontal bed joints of just 1mm.
The new Ancon CCB3 is an innovative two-part Wall Tie, suitable for use in new-build houses and commercial developments. The flat inner section is built into the thin bed joints in the cellular clay blockwork. The cavity width is catered for by the length of the outer wire section, which is hooked into the inner section as work on the external leaf progresses.
This two step installation process eliminates any risk of injury to site workers from wall ties left protruding from the inner leaf.
Ancon has the most comprehensive wall tie range on the market. The Ancon CCB3 Wall Tie complies with BS EN 845-1: 2003 and can be used in line with NHBC standards.
Andrew Lilley, Divisional Sales Manager at Ancon said,
Ancon continues to expand its wall tie range to suit changes in building methods, to comply with the latest European regulations and to help the Industry build safer, faster and more energy-efficient structures.
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.
