Fixing and support systems for industrial buildings on any scale
Concrete and masonry construction in the industrial sector can take many forms. Many large warehouses and other steel-framed structures require heavily loaded concrete floor slabs.
Products such as Ancon reinforcing bar couplers help to reduce rebar congestion at slab joints, facilitating faster, more efficient concrete pouring. Ancon masonry supports, wall ties, windposts and restraint systems are integral to any areas of brick or blockwork.
Lapped joints are not always an appropriate means of connecting rebar.
Reinforcing Bar Couplers
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.

High Integrity Steel & Stainless Steel Fabrications
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.
Wall Ties & Restraint Fixings
Tie bars are increasingly being used in structures and buildings as an architectural as well as a structural element.
