Part E-Compliant Remedial Wall Ties
Ancon has launched two new remedial wall ties, the ‘HRT4/R’ and the ‘Type A R/R’.
These products provide a cost-effective repair solution where one or both leaves of a masonry cavity wall have been built with either incorrect or insufficient wall ties.
The benefit of these ties over other remedial ties is that they meet the performance requirements of ‘Type A’ ties to Approved Document E, and are therefore suitable for use in internal separating walls of new build attached dwellings.
The ‘HRT4/R’ has been developed for use where only one leaf has been built and the ‘Type A R/R’ for where both leaves are built. In each case the ties are resin-bonded in the wall in 10mm diameter holes.
Ancon’s range of wall ties is the most comprehensive available. The company continues to enhance its product offering to ensure it meets the changing requirements of the Industry.
Innovative and quick-to-install reinforcing bar couplers from Ancon replace time-consuming lapped joints and minimise reinforcement congestion in the gigantic concrete superstructure of Europe’s tallest building; the 87-floor, 462m high helicoidal Lakhta Tower in St. Petersburg.
Ancon is pleased to announce it has become one of the first businesses to transition its Occupational Health and Safety Management (OHS) to the new International standard ISO 45001:2018.
