Ancon 500 High Performance Tension System

Tie bars are increasingly being used in structures and buildings as an architectural as well as a structural element. Ancon Tension Systems have been designed to meet the demanding aesthetic requirements of today’s applications.

  • Carbon steel or stainless steel
  • Bars from 8mm to 56mm diameter
  • Choice of finishes
  • Aesthetically designed forks
  • Locking nut included as standard
  • Full adjustment within fork connectors
  • Visual check of correct installation
  • Isolation supplied as standard with stainless steel systems

Ancon has launched a new, high load tension system – The Ancon 500 System.

Ancon 500 Tension System

The Ancon 500 is a new, high performance tension system. It is available in various diameters from 8mm to 42mm in both carbon steel and stainless steel.

All components of the system can be supplied in a variety of finishes to provide corrosion resistance and to meet the demanding aesthetic requirements of many architectural applications. The bar used in this system has a minimum yield of 500N/mm².

Surface finish is usually an important factor in applications using stainless steel. Ancon bars are bright drawn as standard but can be hand polished if required. The stainless steel forks and locking nuts can be supplied electro-polished, satin-polished or hand polished.

Isolation System

Isolation material is supplied as standard with the stainless steel system to enable its fixing to a connecting plate of a dissimilar metal. Each stainless steel fork connector is supplied with two clear, self-adhesive, PET (polyester) washers to be applied around the fixing hole either side of the structure. Stainless steel pins feature a PTFE coating around the barrel.
