HALFEN Anchor Channels
Ancon is the exclusive distributor for HALFEN Anchor Channels in Australia. The HALFEN product range includes a wide range of Anchor Channels in different load classes and finishes. When fixing to concrete, HALFEN cast-in channels provide almost unlimited adjustment along the line of the channel and can eliminate expensive site drilling. Cast-in fixings do not generate expansive forces in the concrete and can be used at close centres and closer to edges than expansion fixings.
HALFEN HTA Anchor Channels
The HALFEN product range includes HALFEN HTA Anchor Channels which hold a European Technical Assessment (ETA) from the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt).
This third party approval system is highly regarded by the Australian market. A product ETA is referenced in the Australian Standard AS 5216:2018 ‘Design of Post-installed and Cast-in Fastenings’, as a means to demonstrate compliance. HALFEN HTA Anchor Channels work in conjunction with HALFEN HS T-bolts to take over tension loads and shear loads perpendicular to the longitudinal channel axis. Hot rolled HALFEN HTA Anchor Channel profiles are suitable for dynamic loads.
