New Isolation System
Ancon’s stainless steel tension system is now supplied with isolation materials as standard.
This new isolation system enables stainless steel tie bars to be fixed to a connecting plate of a dissimilar metal. By separating the two metals, bi-metallic corrosion is avoided.
The components of a tie bar in contact with the plate are the fork connector and the fixing pin.
Each Ancon stainless steel fork connector is now supplied with two clear, self-adhesive, PET (polyester) washers. These washers should be applied to either side of the plate, around the fixing hole, prior to the installation of the fork.
Stainless steel pins now feature a PTFE coating around the barrel.
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.
