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.

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.
We are delighted to be sponsoring and exhibiting at The New Zealand Concrete Industry Conference in Auckland. Between 6th-8th October we will be showcasing our BT range of couplers, our MBT range of couplers and various lifting systems including the launch of our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
