Ancon’s brick support systems can now be supplied with thermal breaks
Ancon has announced that its brick support systems can now be supplied with thermal breaks, to minimise heat loss through cold bridging. Ancon says its thermal breaks work by inserting a layer with a very low thermal conductivity between the brackets and the frame. It adds that they are proven through thermal modelling to reduce heat loss and can typically enable floor junctions to comply with BRE IP1/06. The systems are made from a durable fibre-reinforced thermoset plastic that combines high compressive strength with a thermal conductivity of just 0.3W/m2K.
