Ancon Windposts & Masonry Reinforcement
Ancon AMR Bed Joint Reinforcement and Ancon Windposts are designed to provide additional lateral support for panels of masonry. Windposts can be installed into either the inner leaf of blockwork or into the cavity leaving the blockwork undisturbed. Ancon AMR is a fabricated and flattened stainless steel or carbon steel reinforcement, which locates in the bed joint to strengthen a wall.
Ancon Windposts are designed to suit your specific construction and load conditions. They are suitable for use where standard AMR ladder type masonry reinforcement is inadequate or when there is a requirement to split a large masonry panel.
Ancon Windposts are designed to span vertically between floors to provide lateral support for panels of brickwork. The windposts will usually be restrained by the brickwork and designed as ‘simply supported beams’.
Ancon Windposts comply with all CE marking requirements of BS EN 1090-1, including designs to EN 1993 (Eurocode 3) and external certification of our factory production controls by an approved body.
AMR Bed Joint Reinforcement
Ancon AMR is available in various standard configurations to suit a wide range of structural load conditions and wall widths. The longitudinal wires have a minimum characteristic yield strength of 500N/mm2.
Ancon AMR is supplied with CE marking to demonstrate compliance with BS EN 845-3.
Ancon AMR is available in Austenitic stainless steel (ref. S) and galvanised steel (ref. G). Stainless steel provides the greatest corrosion resistance and life-cycle costing benefits, and is suitable for use in any application. Galvanised steel is not suitable for use in the external leaf of a cavity wall.
