Ancon will be showcasing its comprehensive range of products for structural concrete at this year’s Concrete Show.
Visit stand number K1 to discuss the new Lockable Dowel for use at temporary movement joints in post-tensioned concrete and the Eurocode-compliant design program for Shearfix punching shear reinforcement. Other Ancon products on display will include the MultiJoint system for ground bearing concrete slabs, Eazistrip reinforcement continuity systems, Isolan insulated balcony connectors and a comprehensive range of threaded and mechanically bolted reinforcing bar couplers.
The Lockable Dowel replaces the need for ‘pour strips’ at temporary movement joints in post-tensioned concrete frames, significantly increasing the rate of construction. It allows initial shrinkage of the concrete to take place before the dowel bar is locked in position with epoxy resin. It has been recognised by both the Construction Products Association and Construct Concrete Structures Group for the site efficiencies it offers.
The enhanced Shearfix design program can be used to carry out punching shear designs to Eurocode 2 and BS8110. Ancon Shearfix is installed within a concrete slab to reinforce column heads against punching shear and consists of double-headed steel studs welded to flat rails. The design software simplifies specification by calculating the optimum stud centres and rail layout.
Ancon’s sales and technical representatives will be on hand at the show to discuss your current and future project requirements. For more information please visit www.ancon.co.uk/concrete.
