Welcome to the latest Ancon newsletter. In this issue, we discuss the latest addition to our innovative and patented 'Lockable' range, launch of a nationwide network of Helifix Approved Installers and a new design guide for our BowTie range.
Ancon extends its ‘Lockable’ connector range with the Locking Pin
Ancon has extended its 'Lockable' range designed for use at temporary movement joints in post-tensioned concrete frames, with the introduction of the Locking Pin.
The Lockable range comprises high integrity, high performance connectors that allow initial shrinkage of the concrete to take place and are then locked in position, by mechanical and chemical means, to prevent further movement taking place.
While the original Lockable Dowel transfers shear load in both its locked and unlocked state, the new Locking Pin is ideal for use where tension loads are high but there is little or no shear load. When used together, or in combination with other Ancon shear load connectors, these unique products provide a cost-effective and practical fixing solution for temporary movement joints.

New Helifix BowTie Design Guide for Seismic Upgrades
Helifix has launched a new 12 page technical brochure on its long established BowTie range, used to connect masonry walls to internal timber floor or ceiling joists.
Improving wall to floor connections is a standard procedure in the seismic retrofit of buildings. The BowTie HD has been independently tested to establish the seismic performance of the system as a wall-diaphragm anchorage.
Details on specification and testing are featured in the brochure with data on maximum achievable BowTie anchorage capacities in timber and resin fixed into masonry. Design guidance and a design example is also featured to help the engineer determine seismic demand and calculate the capacity of a one wall-diaphragm anchor.
The BowTie system provides a cost effective, non-disruptive solution for strengthening Unreinforced Masonry (URM) buildings with flexible diaphragms.
