AL Distributors Masonry Reinforcement

 

Ancon Masonry Reinforcement (AMR) improves the structural performance of masonry walls by providing additional resistance to lateral loads e.g. wind. It also reduces the risk of cracking either at stress concentrations around openings or as a result of movement, in accordance with BS5628-3: 2005. Masonry Reinforcement is sometimes referred to as Bed Joint Reinforcement.

The longitudinal steel wires are flattened to ensure good mortar cover even when lapped or used with wall ties. Standard configurations suit a wide range of structural load conditions and wall widths.
