Ancon 25/14 Restraint System
The new Ancon 25/14 Channel has been designed to tie masonry to steelwork, including steel studding.
Self-drilling screws fix through the channel and the insulation material, into the light section steel frame. Once the channel is installed, Ancon SD25 wall ties can be positioned at any point along its length and are built into the bed joints of the outer leaf of masonry.
Ancon 25/14 Channel has pre-punched holes at close centres to ensure a fixing position is always located near the end, even when the channel is cut onsite. It also features a 16mm opening to easily accommodate a drive socket for the fixing screws.
This system has been independently tested at CERAM Building Technology (UK) and meets the technical requirements of the NHBC.
