Ancon’s innovative Teplo-BF has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Innovation in Insulation” category of the 2016 Build It Awards.
The latest addition to the Teplo range, Teplo-BF, features the same ultra-low conductivity basalt fibre body as the original bar-shaped TeploTie, with specially moulded safety ends which make the new tie easier and safer to use and significantly enhanced mortar bond.
As well as providing a thermal conductivity of just 0.7W/mK, meaning it is disregarded as a thermal bridge in ‘U’-value calculations, Teplo-BF offers an 80% increase in bond strength over the original TeploTie, making it particularly suitable for use with lime and other slow-drying mortars.
Judged by a panel of industry experts, the Build It Awards celebrate the latest developments in the self-build market; a construction sector which often pushes the boundaries of energy efficient design. Teplo-BF is one of 5 recent innovations that the judges will be considering for this year’s prestigious award.
Teplo-BF’s selection follows similar recognition for its sister product, Teplo-L, in the 2014 Build It Awards; the shortlisting of Ancon’s Cavity Wall Tie Product Selector App in 2013, and top honours for the original TeploTie – voted “Best Innovation in Insulation” in the 2012 Awards. The ground-breaking range has also received recognition in other award programmes – including the 2010 Self-Build Product Innovation Awards and, more recently, the World Architecture News Product Innovation Awards.
