Ancon shear connectors can be provided with 90 minutes fire protection. Special sleeves, manufactured from a fire barrier material, replace the compressible filler at the connector’s position in the joint. This material foams and expands during a fire to protect the connector.
Fire protection sleeves are supplied in a thickness of 20mm to suit 20mm joints and 30mm to suit 30mm joints. Sleeves of both thicknesses are used together for larger joints. The hole or holes in the sleeve are supplied to suit the connector’s dowel diameter.
