Strength and integrity for major stadium and arena construction
Ancon steel fixings provide primary structural connections, load transfer and reinforcement continuity in a whole range of large-scale sports and leisure buildings – from landmark Olympic and professional football stadia to public sports centres and event arenas worldwide.
Ancon tension and compression systems are used to brace impressive overhead structural steelwork on eye-catching stadia, while shear load connectors are used to support shifting loads across movement joints in huge sporting structures. Ancon masonry systems provide vital reinforcement for brick, block and stone walls in a host of leisure facilities.
How a range of Ancon shear load connectors and locking pins contributed to the build of the cavernous new Cultural Centre at Barangaroo Point, Sydney, Australia.

Ancon DSD Shear Load Connectors were installed in Sydney’s Olympic Stadium. The stadium was completed in 1998 and was the central venue for track and field events at the 2000 Games.

Ancon supplied three sizes of shear connectors to the redevelopment of the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia. Better known now as the Melbourne MCG, this stadium was the main track and field venue for 2006 Commonwealth Games. This project necessitated the rebuilding of 55% of an existing sportsground.
