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.
Available exclusively in Australia from Ancon, HALFEN HTA Anchor Channels demonstrate compliance with Australian Standard AS5216 ‘Design of Post-installed and Cast-in Fastenings’ through a new European Technical Assessment (ETA).
Ancon has relocated its Melbourne operations to a site three times larger than its previous unit. This new facility will better service current market demand for Ancon’s engineered construction accessories and support the company’s growth ambitions nationwide.
