Rapid, quality-controlled installation minimises programme times
Large health sector buildings benefit from the simplicity and speed of construction facilitated by Ancon fixings for concrete and masonry. Many hospitals feature large spans to accommodate open-plan interiors, and Ancon shear load connectors are essential for joining reinforced and post-tensioned concrete slabs.
Hidden masonry supports and reinforcement play a vital role in the internal and external walls of large hospital buildings, and special, non-magnetic stainless steel products can be specified for sensitive areas such as radiotherapy suites.
An Ancon brickwork support system has been installed on the new 300 bed Orange Hospital in New South Wales.
