Background

The Ancon Isolan system is a structural component used to join external concrete balconies to internal floor slabs. It provides continuity to both the concrete reinforcement and the thermal insulation of the wall protecting the building against the effects of cold bridging.

Standard Isolan systems, comprising rigid CFC-free polystyrene insulation and stainless steel shear reinforcement, suit most depths of cantilever and propped cantilever balconies. The various systems allow the transfer of all loads in structural concrete i.e. moment, shear, compression and tension, and are suitable for straight runs and both internal and external corners.

Ancon Isolan connectors require conventional reinforcing bars to provide the tension and compression reinforcement. When compared to systems where this reinforcement is an integral component, the Ancon Isolan solution can provide substantial cost savings and simplify specification and scheduling, transportation, on-site handling and installation.

Special Fabrications

Ancon is a specialist fabricator and has a wealth of experience in working with a range of types and grades of stainless steel.

Ancon supplies special fabrications to industries such as civil and marine engineering, water treatment, petrochemical and food handling.

Capabilities

Ancon has the capability to fabricate all Austenitic, Duplex and Super Duplex stainless steels in a plate thickness of up to 25mm and 2000kg in weight.

The company has invested in laser cutting technology that is interfaced with CAD to enable the effective production of 2D flat blanks to precise tolerances. Laser cutting with pure Nitrogen produces a very smooth, fine cut edge, ideal where joint fit or physical appearance are of primary importance.

The following services are available:

•        Plasma, laser and water jet profiling

•        Plate sawing

•        CNC Press braking

•        MIG, TIG and MMA Welding

•        Machining including drilling, milling and turning

•        Section rolling

•        Wire and Strip, bending and forming

•        Bar bending, threading and forming

•        Coining, forming and blanking

•        Deburring and finishing

Quality and Approvals

All Ancon products are designed and manufactured to the quality requirements of BS EN ISO 9001. Fabrication personnel are routinely coded to BS4872 and in addition are regularly approved to BS EN 287 to weld to the procedures specific to BS EN 288. A full range of destructive and non-destructive testing can be carried out to meet contract requirements. Full traceability and certification of raw materials is available as required.
