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
Ancon manufactures three 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.
The Ancon offices will close at 12:00pm on Friday 22nd December 2017 and re-open at 8:30am on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
The Lockable Dowel has won a 2017 Most Innovative Product award in the USA. It has been named Editor’s Choice in the ‘Materials for Concrete Construction’ category.
