Intelligent fixing design for efficient, secure construction
The construction of vast shopping centres requires large areas of reinforced concrete – from foundation slabs to floors and vertical cores, as well as extensive masonry walls to help developments blend with their surroundings.
Ancon masonry fixings reinforce large areas of blockwork, as well as supporting external brick and stone cladding. Large spans are a feature of shopping centres, and Ancon shear connectors, rebar couplers and reinforcement continuity systems enable concrete floors to extend over large areas. By helping to minimise rebar congestion, these products also improve the efficiency of concrete pouring.
Ancon KSN Anchors, Keybox and BT Couplers ensure continuous wall-to-slab reinforcement for 74-storey Soleil Tower, Brisbane’s 4th tallest building.
