Technical Literature Updated with CE Mark
Our technical literature has been updated to highlight the products that now carry CE Marking under the Construction Products Regulation.
The new Ancon publications, which can now be downloaded here, or are available in hard copy on request, are ‘Wall Ties and Restraint Fixings‘, ‘Masonry Support Systems and Lintels’, ‘Windposts and Parapet Posts’ and ‘Tension and Compression Systems’.
As well as providing an introduction to the new regulation, the updated literature uses the CE logo throughout to help readers identify immediately those products designed, tested and manufactured to a harmonised European Standard or European Technical Approval. This mark provides reassurance that the products can be legally sold in the UK and throughout the wider EEA community.
To further assist engineers, contractors and distributors to comply with the new regulation, which became law on 1st July 2013, Ancon has also published a comprehensive 12-page guide entitled ‘CE Marking to the CPR’ which is available to download from this page. This booklet summarises the products affected and the obligations throughout the supply chain.
Ancon’s Marketing Manager, Annabelle Wilson, said,
Ancon’s initial focus was on ensuring compliance with the new Construction Products Regulation. Having completed all necessary product testing and successfully passing external audits of our design and manufacturing processes, our focus has now switched to ensuring that all the product and performance information needed to select our CPR-compliant products is readily available.
We have undertaken a complete review of our technical literature in line with Eurocode design methods, harmonised European product standards and the EU Construction Products Regulation.
Now available in lengths of 325mm and 350mm, the Ancon ST1 wall tie range has been extended to suit high-rise masonry buildings with insulated cavities up to 225mm wide.
When forming a cross brace using tie bars, the new Ancon Cross Coupler offers a streamlined alternative to an anchor disc.
