G11 Building, University of NSW
Ancon Building Products recently supplied stainless steel reinforcing bar to De Martin & Gasparini on the G11 Building at the University of New South Wales.
The G11 building required stainless steel bar, as opposed to mild steel bar, because of its non-magnetic properties. The building will house a special machine which would have been affected if mild steel reinforcing bar was used.
A comprehensive range of stainless steel reinforcing bar is available from Ancon.
Lapped joints are not always an appropriate means of connecting rebar.
Independent tests have verified the enhanced performance specifically offered by Ancon KSN Anchors when used in slab-to-wall moment connections.
Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
