Rail & Tunnels
High-strength connections for road, rail and cable tunnels
Ancon shear connectors, rebar couplers and reinforcement continuity products provide the structural integrity required for tunnels with reinforced concrete walls and floors. Many underground rail stations rely on the quality assurance and speed of installation provided by Ancon fixings.
Ancon has also developed advanced aesthetic and fire-resilient tunnel lining systems for major road and rail tunnels, stainless steel suspension systems to securely hold concrete tunnel roof sections in place, and maintenance-free brackets to support heavy-duty cables in underground tunnels.
The brickwork was positioned within the formwork of the huge concrete beams and Helifix stainless steel helical pins were used to mechanically bond the masonry and concrete together.
