Ancon designs and manufactures a wide range of steel fixings for use in structural concrete. The range includes:
Shear Load Connectors: transfer shear across expansion and contraction joints in concrete. They are more effective at transferring load than conventional, single dowels. Design program available.
Punching Shear Reinforcement: used within a slab to provide additional reinforcement around columns, Ancon Shearfix eliminates the need for localised thickening of the concrete. The system consists of double-headed studs welded to flat rails. Design program available.
Insulated Balcony Connectors: Ancon Isolan provides a thermal break between external concrete balconies and internal concrete floor slabs and provides continuity to reinforcement.
Reinforcement Continuity Systems: Eazistrip reinforcement continuity systems maintain continuity of reinforcement at concrete construction joints. Formwork design is simplified and there is no need to drill shuttering. KSN Anchors this system comprises internally-threaded anchors which are cast into the wall and, during construction of the adjoining slab, accept continuation bars prepared with a Bartec parallel-thread.
Reinforcing Bar Couplers: the use of Ancon reinforcing bar couplers can simplify the design and construction of reinforced concrete, reducing the amount of reinforcement required. A comprehensive range is offered.
