KS Threaded Anchors
Use of the new Ancon KS Threaded Anchor with BT threaded reinforcing bar can simplify concrete design at construction joints, typically in wall-to-slab applications.
The system eliminates the need to drill either formwork or concrete. It replaces cogged or hooked bar ends simplifying bar scheduling and can be used to minimise congestion in the wall.
Alternatively, the Ancon KS Anchor can be used to provide a high capacity fixing point for a standard metric bolt.
The KS Threaded Anchor is machined from solid bright drawn steel bar and there are five anchors in the KS range, comprising two thread sizes and three lengths.
KS Anchors are designed for use with 12mm and 16mm grade 500 reinforcing bar, which is threaded with a BT metric thread. Standard lengths, 40 times the bar diameter are held in stock. The maximum bar length is 6000mm.

With their new European Technical Assessment (ETA), Halfen HZA serrated anchor channels fulfil all requirements of AS 5216:2021 and can be used in projects across Australia.
Leviat has released an enhanced version of its popular Ancon Shearfix design software that enables engineers to maintain a flat concrete slab at column heads by reinforcing the area against punching shear with a prefabricated, stud-rail system.
