Swann Direct provide a wide range of Ancon wall ties and restraint fixings to the construction industry.
Wall ties are used in buildings with cavity walls. They are used to join the two leaves of a cavity wall together, allowing the two parts to act as a homogeneous unit. Hidden from view after construction, wall ties play a vital role in ensuring the stability of a building.
Ancon wall ties are manufactured from corrosion and fire-resistant materials. The fixings are available in a variety of lengths and types for restraining brickwork, blockwork and stonework. Restraints can be fixed to concrete and structural steelwork plus any type of masonry.
Our product line includes the Ancon ST1, Staifix RT2, Staifix HRT4, Ancon ACOU SP-SD, Teplo, Staifix-Thor Helical TIM6, Staifix STF6 and Ancon Timber Frame Movement Tie TFMT7 range. Customers can order low thermal conductivity wall ties, two-part ties, ties for thin-joint blockwork, ties for timber frames, frame cramps, pre-fixing aids, channel ties, vertical movement joints, standard wall ties, non-drill fixings for steelwork, head restraints, acoustic wall ties, restraints for stone cladding and remedial wall ties.
