Ladder Type Bed Joint Reinforcement
Ancon AMR ‘Ladder Type’ Masonry Reinforcement is a fabricated steel reinforcement system that is located in the bed joint to strengthen masonry panels without thickening the wall.
The longitudinal steel wires are flattened to ensure good mortar cover even when lapped or used with wall ties. Cross wires are welded in the same plane as the main wires at 450mm centres.
Standard configurations suit a wide range of structural load conditions and wall widths. Product selection is based on calculation.
The longitudinal wires have a minimum characteristic yield strength of 500N/mm². AMR meets the requirements of BS EN 845-3: 2003.
