Structural fixings specialist, Ancon, has updated its popular Cavity Wall Tie Product Selector App to feature its extended range of award-winning basalt-fibre TeploTies.
Launched last year, the App has recently been updated to feature Ancons longer lengths of TeploTie, now available to suit cavity widths up to 450mm.
TeploTie composite wall ties comprise pultruded basalt fibres set in a resin matrix; a material which offers a thermal conductivity of just 0.7W/mK. Their use reduces thermal bridging across the cavity, minimising insulation depth and wall footprint.
App users simply answer a series of simple multiple-choice questions about wall construction, cavity width, building type and height, and are presented with the ideal wall tie, or ties, from Ancons full market-leading range. Users are also presented with all the information needed to draft the final specification, from u-value calculation data to geographical restrictions and insulation clip type.
The latest version of the App is free to download from the App Store for all iPhone and iPad users, or from the Google Play Store for Android handsets and tablets. For desktop users, a web based version of the App is available at www.ancon.co.uk.
