Acting on intelligence out in the field, undercover fixing specialist Ancon has launched a new super-Bond, ultra-low thermal conductivity wall tie that even SPECTRE would find hard to crack!
Based on the company’s multi-award winning TeploTie with a conductivity of 00.7W/mK which virtually eliminates heat loss through thermal bridging in cavity wall construction, the new Teplo-BF basalt fibre wall tie features specially moulded safety ends that improve buildability and enhance mortar bond strength by up to 80%.
The new user-friendly design has exceptional mortar grabbing capability, making Teplo-BF particularly suitable for use with lime and other slow-drying mortars.
The Teplo-BF, like the original TeploTie which was introduced into the UK and Ireland by Ancon in 2010 and since used on a number of ground-breaking PassivHaus and Zero-Carbon buildings, is created by the setting of innovative pultruded basalt fibres in a resin matrix. This composite material provides a combination of high strength and outstanding thermal efficiency.
The ultra-low thermal conductivity, twenty times below that of stainless steel, means that Teplo-BF ties are excluded from U-value calculations to BS EN ISO 6946, helping to minimise insulation and wall thickness, a particular benefit in modern low-energy construction applications.
Available in the same wide range of lengths and types as the original TeploTie, the new Teplo-BF wall tie is suitable for cavities up to 450mm wide and buildings up to 18 metres in height, and carry BBA and NHBC technical approvals.
