The new Ancon Cross Coupler offers a streamlined alternative to an anchor disc when forming a cross brace using tie bars.
Cross couplers and anchor discs allow tension bars to lie in the same plane and remove the need to offset bars, with the coupler or disc providing an attractive design feature for the panel.
The cross coupler provides a high load capacity and available to suit tie bar diameters from 10mm to 24mm in both carbon and stainless steel.
Ancon tie bars can typically be supplied in lengths of up to 6 metres and can now be extended over the maximum bar length by the inclusion of couplers, cross couplers or anchor discs.
The system is ‘CE’ marked, allows adjustments to be made to the system length without the need for turnbuckles and provides a visual check of correct bar engagement.
