Masonry Reinforcement for Collar-Jointed Walls
Masonry reinforcement for collar-jointed walls is the latest new product to be added to the Ancon range. Ancon AMR-CJ is used to tie the two leaves of thin masonry together, so it acts as a single unit.
The product consists of flat ties welded to flattened longitudinal wires. Manufactured in stainless and galvanised steel, AMR-CJ is supplied in a standard width of 175mm to suit a wall width of 215mm comprising of either standard bricks or 100mm blocks.
Ancon offers a free masonry panel design service. A standard design sheet is available to download from www.ancon.co.uk, which allows engineers to summarise the individual wall panels requiring Ancon’s attention.
