Ancon Shearfix comprises double-headed studs welded to flat rails. It is manufactured to suit the specific requirements of each application.
Studs are manufactured in four diameters (12, 16, 20 and 24mm) from high strength steel bar. The heads are hot forged to three times the diameter of the bar. Studs are manufactured in virtually any length to suit the depth of slab, but are normally formed in increments of 10mm within the 100-500mm range. The bar used in this system has characteristic yield strength of 500MPa.
Studs are welded to the rail at the centres determined by Ancon’s software or a design calculation. Shearfix rails are manufactured from strips of steel, 20mm wide.
Each rail of studs carries the following identification:
Shearfix Code, Stud Diameter x Stud Length, Number of Studs @ Stud Centres, Rail Length
Column/Grid Reference (Optional)
Floor Level (Optional)
e.g. SF12 x 230, 3@180 c/c, 600 Long
