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 CCB4 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 CCB4 Wall Tie complies with BS EN 845-1: 2013 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.
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.
