Ancon TeploTie

Low thermal conductivity wall tie

'Ancon's range of Low Thermal Conductivity Wall Ties minimise heat loss through thermal bridging and improve the energy efficiency of a masonry cavity wall.
In addition to a number of high tensile stainless steel wire Wall Ties, the range includes the Ancon TeploTie which is manufactured from pultruded basalt fibres set in an epoxy resin. These ties are available to suit cavities from 50mm to 300mm and have been used on many ultra energy-efficient buildings including the first certified Passivhaus to be built with traditional masonry cavity walls and the first retrofit to be built to Level 6 (zero carbon) of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
The TeploTie has a BBA approval and is available exclusively from Ancon Building Products. It has a thermal conductivity of just 0.7 W/mK, making it the most thermally efficient Wall Tie on the market. All fixings with a conductivity rating of under 1.0 W/mk are excluded from U-value calculations to EN ISO 6946. TeploTie can therefore be used to reduce insulation thickness and wall footprint providing savings on all associated construction materials.'
