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.
Ancon will be exhibiting at Evolving Concrete 2017 on Thursday 28th September 2017 at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, Reading. Ancon will be on Stand 19 for the duration of the event.
Ancon is pleased to announce that it has successfully transitioned its Quality and Environmental Management Systems to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 respectively, well ahead of the September 2018 industry deadline.
