New product innovations from Ancon at Ecobuild 2017

Keeping innovation at the top of its agenda, high integrity structural fixings manufacturer, Ancon, further expanded its wide product range with new product launches at the UK’s largest event for specifiers in the built environment, Ecobuild 2017.

Ancon Ecobuild Stand 2017 E3110

With four key product zones, the Ancon stand B135, featured the innovative Nexus® brick-faced support system for prefabricated soffits, structural thermal breaks for balcony locations, KSN Anchors for quicker, safer reinforcement continuity at construction joints and a comprehensive range of low thermal conductivity wall ties.

Nexus Brick Soffit Support Systems

Creating architectural brick features including soffits, deep reveals and flying beams has never been easier thanks to the lightweight, brick-faced Nexus® system developed by Ancon and cut-brick specialist Ibstock Kevington.

Nexus Brick Soffit Support

Combining a specially developed brick faced steel unit with Ancon’s tried and tested MDC stainless steel bracket angle support system, Nexus® is quick to install as no mechanical lifting is required, is lighter and easier to handle than precast concrete soffit systems and its two-part design allows full adjustment on site resulting in perfect alignment.

Insulated Balcony Connectors

To help designers meet their thermal performance aspirations, Ancon expanded its range of structural thermal breaks for balcony locations to accommodate even higher loads. Typical applications for these high performance products include large cantilever balconies and situations where column layout or rebar congestion limits the number of connectors that can be installed.

Thermal breaks for balconies

Minimising heat loss while maintaining structural integrity, Ancon balcony connectors are available to suit concrete-to-concrete, steel-to-concrete and steel-to-steel applications. All solutions can also be specified in stainless steel which is 3x more thermally efficient than galvanised/carbon steel.

KSN Anchor Reinforcement Continuity Systems

The award-winning CARES-approved KSN Anchor system allows engineers to design slab-to-wall connections in reinforced concrete frames without the restrictions on bar length and bar diameter of traditional re-bend continuity systems.

The system works by casting internally threaded anchors into a concrete wall which accept Bartec Plus parallel thread reinforcing bars during construction of the adjoining slab.

The Ancon video below demonstrates how KSN Anchors accelerate construction and improve on site working conditions by eliminating the dangers inherent with projecting starter bars and bar straightening required by rebend continuity boxes.

Low Thermal Conductivity Wall Ties

Teplo-BF Cavity Wall Tie with Insulation

Teplo-BF Cavity Wall Tie with Insulation

For visitors designing PassivHaus and Zero Carbon projects, the award-winning Teplo range of basalt fibre wall ties was available at the show. Samples of Ancon’s low thermal conductivity ties were displayed including the Teplo-BF, a new build cavity wall tie with a thermal conductivity of just 0.7W/mK that has exceptional mortar grabbing capability, suitable for use with lime and other slow-drying mortars.

The Ancon stand gave visitors an excellent opportunity to talk one on one with our experienced technical and sales support team who were happy to help with specific project or business requirements.
