Essential strength and stability for multi-storey buildings
Throughout multi-storey office buildings, Ancon’s structural fixings provide the assured strength and durability demanded by developers. Masonry fixings are used to reinforce internal blockwork walls, support brick or stone external cladding and securely tie claddings back to the structural framework.
Ancon acoustic ties help to reduce noise transfer in cavity and partition walls. Ancon concrete fixings are specified throughout large buildings, from bar couplers in the foundation raft to vertical connections in the concrete core and shear connections between floor slabs and the core. Bespoke solutions, using a combination of products, can also be devised to connect precast elements with in-situ concrete.

Stainless Steel Reinforcement
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
Ancon manufactures three products which provide continuity of reinforcement across construction joints in concrete.
