Ancon Tension Systems comprise a stylish range of fork connectors, locking nuts, bars, couplers and discs. They can be used to create a variety of assemblies, from simple tie bars to complex bracing systems involving several bars joined at one point. Components can be supplied in a variety of finishes to provide corrosion resistance and to meet the demanding aesthetic requirements of many architectural applications.
