Connections & Ties
The choice of fixing and its position is dependant on the type and length of the windpost and the structure to which it is being fixed. Ancon designs fixing details for the top and base of each windpost and a drawing is issued for approval prior to manufacture. The bolt in the slotted connection at the top of the windpost is positioned so that vertical movement of the frame can take place. The details shown are typical.
The type of fixing will depend on the frame. Expansion bolts are normally supplied for concrete frames and set screws will be supplied for steel frames.
A range of ties is available to suit Ancon Windposts. SDN Ties are used to the outer leaf and SPN Ties to the inner leaf. SNS Ties are used across the posts in the inner blockwork and can be supplied with a debonding sleeve for use where there is a vertical movement joint.
