Connections for Fixing and Wall Ties

Ancon Windposts are designed to span vertically between floors to provide lateral support for panels of brickwork. They are designed to suit specific applications and are supplied complete with end connections and ties.


The choice of fixing and its position in the structure should be considered when the windpost or parapet post has been selected. This is particularly important when the post is to be fixed to concrete. The bolt in the slotted connection at the top should be positioned so that vertical movement of the frame can take place. Typical details are shown.

The type of fixing will depend on the frame. Expansion bolts are normally supplied for concrete frames and set screws will be supplied for steel frames.

Wall Ties

A range of ties is available to suit Ancon Windposts. SDN Ties are used to the outer leaf and SPN Ties to the inner leaf. SNS Ties are used across the posts in the inner blockwork and can be supplied with a debonding sleeve for use where there is a vertical movement joint.
