Quality-assured fixings and supports for rapid construction
Ancon fixings for masonry and concrete are an essential component in new-build schools, both public and private, enabling much-needed education facilities to be completed safely and quickly – whatever the budget.
Masonry support systems enable large-scale brick cladding installations to be completed to the highest safety standards and can be designed to allow iconic architectural brickwork features to be achieved, including deep soffits, arches and perforated masonry, without structural steelwork being seen. In concrete frame construction, shear load connectors and Shearfix punching shear reinforcement are specifically designed to simplify and accelerate construction processes.
Ancon designed and manufactured the stainless steel support and restraint system for the intricate brick façade of the Centenary Library at the heart of the Anglican Church Grammar School.

A comprehensive range of stainless steel reinforcing bar is available from Ancon.
Stainless Steel Reinforcement
Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.
Shear Load Connectors
The weight of a slab supported on a column induces shear stresses in the slab. These stresses, if sufficient and where additional reinforcement is not provided, would result in the column ‘punching’ through the slab.
Punching Shear Reinforcement
Masonry cladding on steel or concrete framed structures is normally supported by stainless steel shelf angle.
Ancon Windposts span vertically between floors to provide additional lateral support for large panels of masonry or panels with openings.
Wall ties and restraint fixings are an essential element in the stability of masonry panels.
