Ancon has fabricated six stainless steel lattice towers to support the brick chimneys of a large new residential property in Hampshire.
The two 7metre high and four 5.5metre high towers were manufactured by Ancon from Austenitic stainless steel, grade 1.4301 (304).
Each tower comprised four corner angles, braced at regular intervals by both horizontal and diagonal plates. Originally conceived as overlapping bars, the diagonal braces were re-designed by Ancon and laser cut from stainless steel plate in the shape of an ‘X’, thereby reducing material content.
Three sides of each tower were fully welded, whilst the braces on the fourth side were bolted in position, to provide some fixing tolerance on-site.
All fabrication work was undertaken at Ancon’s manufacturing facility in Sheffield. The company has a wealth of experience in working with a range of types and grades of stainless steel and supplies special fabrications to various industries including building, civil engineering, water treatment and petrochemical.
