Online CPD from Ancon
As we all change the way we are working, Ancon has extended its technical services offering to include ‘on demand’ webinars enabling those of you practicing social distancing, while working at home or back in the office, to keep on top of your professional development.
The webinars complement our highly successful CPD-approved seminar programme of over 30 years and are delivered by Ancon technical staff who have considerable technical experience of applying seminar content in practice and in answering questions from both specifiers and contractors.
The following webinars, which cover masonry and concrete construction, are now available:
Designing for Joints in Structural Concrete: Part 1
An overview of replacing lapped joints and projecting starter bars using reinforcement continuity systems and reinforcing against punching shear to EC2 using stud rail systems.
The Support of Masonry Cladding on Framed Buildings
An overview of why we need masonry support and the various options available. Topics covered include: positioning of, and detailing at, movement joints, supporting masonry above horizontal movement joints, on radiussed areas and at suspended brickwork features.
The Correct Use of Wall Ties in Brick-to-Block Construction
An overview of best practice in the selection and installation of standard cavity wall ties. Topics covered include: how to specify wall tie type, length and density; how to install wall ties correctly; how to reduce thermal bridging.
We are delighted to announce that we will be sponsoring a Bear for the 2021 ‘Bears of Sheffield’ sculpture trail, a unique participative public art event that will raise funds for a new, urgently needed, Cancer and Leukaemia ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
Designed to minimise thermal bridging in masonry cavity walls, the patented Ancon Thermal Windpost (TWP2) from Leviat offers up to an impressive 70% reduction in thermal transmission through the span of the windpost.
