Minimise heat loss with Ancon Thermal Breaks

Ancon Thermal Breaks
Brick support systems from Ancon can now be supplied with Thermal Breaks to minimise heat loss through cold bridging, and improve the energy efficiency of a building.
Thermal bridging occurs when the insulation layer is penetrated by a material with a relatively high thermal conductivity.
Ancon Thermal Breaks work by inserting a material with a very low thermal conductivity between the brackets and the frame.
Through thermal modelling, they are proven to reduce heat loss and can typically enable details to comply with BRE IP1/06 floor junction.
Shaped like a standard Ancon key-hole shim, these Thermal Breaks can be fitted quickly and easily onsite.
They are manufactured from a durable fibre-reinforced thermoset plastic which combines high compressive strength with a thermal conductivity of just 0.3W/mK.
Standard Ancon Thermal Breaks, suitable for standard AnconOptima support brackets and most bespoke Ancon MDC-type brackets, are available from stock.

A new rebar continuity system, Ancon KSN Anchor, that changes the way concrete slab-to-wall joints are constructed, has been voted ‘Best Product in Show’ at the 2013 UK Concrete Show
Access to Ancon’s structural fixing website has been redeveloped for mobile users including Smartphone, iPad and netbook.
Ancon Building Products is at Europe’s biggest specialist concrete show to launch its KSN Anchor reinforcement continuity system that simplifies slab-to-wall construction joints.
Ecobuild 2013 will see Ancon exhibit its current structural fixings solutions which include low thermal conductivity cavity wall ties and its new Type 2 stainless wall tie.
