Eureka Tower, Melbourne - Keybox
Eureka Tower is located beside the Yarra River at Southbank, Melbourne. The 92 storey building stands 300 metres tall and is currently taller than any other apartment building in the world.
Ancon Building Products supplied several products to this development.
- Keybox Reinforcement Continuity Systems reinforced the core wall to slab connections
- Heavy duty cast-in channel to support the curtain wall façade
- BT Reinforcing Bar Couplers and Anchors to support the main structure and columns
- Ancon DSD Shear Load Connectors were used in the car park area
Leviat manufactures three Ancon products which provide continuity of reinforcement across construction joints in concrete.
Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.
Lapped joints are not always an appropriate means of connecting rebar.
With their new European Technical Assessment (ETA), Halfen HZA serrated anchor channels fulfil all requirements of AS 5216:2021 and can be used in projects across Australia.
Leviat has released an enhanced version of its popular Ancon Shearfix design software that enables engineers to maintain a flat concrete slab at column heads by reinforcing the area against punching shear with a prefabricated, stud-rail system.
