Overview

Ancon® Shearfix Punching Shear Reinforcement

Ancon® Shearfix is a custom-made concrete accessory supplied by InfraBuild Construction Solutions (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel Reinforcing) and designed to be used as punching shear reinforcement around columns. Ancon Shearfix is suitable for flat plate construction and offers advantages over loose shear links, which can be time-consuming to install.

The custom-made system consists of double-headed studs welded to flat rails, which are positioned in the slab around the column. The studs are welded to the rail at the centres specified in the design to ensure installation at the most effective position. Ancon provides free software to determine the optimum system design.
