Application

  • Used to improve the structural performance of masonry walls.
  • Suitable for walls 100–215 mm thick

Description

A welded wire ladder-type reinforcement, manufactured in 2700 mm standard lengths, used to improve the structural performance of masonry walls, in accordance with BS 5628-2:2005, by providing additional resistance to lateral loads e.g. wind.


It can also be used to reduce the risk of cracking either at stress concentrations around openings or as a result of movement, in accordance with BS 5628-3:2005.


Features and benefits:

  • Available in four standard widths (60, 100, 150 and 175 mm).
  • The product is manufactured from five wire sizes which, after flattening, have an equivalent wire diameter of 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5 and 5 mm. Longitudinal wires have a minimum characteristic yield strength of 500 N/mm².
  • Ancon AMR is available in austenitic stainless steel and galvanized steel. Galvanized steel is not available in 3.5 and 4.5 mm wire diameters and is not suitable for use in the external leaf of a cavity wall.
  • Masonry reinforcement for collar-jointed walls is also available from Ancon.
  • Ancon AMR-CJ is used to tie the two leaves of thin masonry together, so it acts as a single unit. The product consists of flat ties welded to flattened longitudinal wires. Manufactured in stainless and galvanized steel, AMR-CJ is supplied in a standard width of 175 mm to suit a wall width of 215 mm comprising of either standard bricks or 100 mm blocks.
  • Ancon AMR-X features shaped cross wires which ensure the longitudinal wires are located in the centre of a bed joint, ensuring an adequate bond, accelerating construction and improving build quality.
  • Tie type classified as Type A according to Approved Document E.
