Ecobuild To Feature Ancon Thermal Wall Ties Range

Ancon Building Products is showcasing its sustainable products at Ecobuild, including its range of low thermal conductivity wall ties. The wall ties form Ancon minimise heat transfer through a masonry cavity wall. Use of these wall ties can reduce insulation thickness and wall footprint. In addition to Ancon's stainless steel wire wall ties, this range includes the BBA-approved TeploTie.

The Ancon TeploTie is manufactured from basalt fibres and has a thermal conductivity of 0.7W/mK. Fixings with a conductivity of under 1.0W/mK are excluded from U-value calculations to EN ISO 6946. Ancon's low conductivity range is manufactured in a variety of lengths to suit cavities from 50mm to 300mm. Ancon designs and manufactures high integrity structural fixings and supplies a variety of construction sectors including residential, commercial, infrastructure and sporting stadia.

In addition to cavity wall ties, Ancon manufactures insulated balcony connectors, warm roof batten fixings and stainless steel lintels. Many Ancon products are fabricated from stainless steel which has an approximate 60 per cent recycled content, a lower thermal conductivity than carbon steel and is 100 per cent recyclable at the end of a long, low maintenance service life. Ancon will be exhibiting at Stand 2230 at Ecobuild 2010.
