  • Ancon Isolan Connectors are used to join external concrete balconies to internal concrete floor slabs.
  • Type MV Connectors help minimize cold bridging and provide continuity to the thermal insulation.
  • The standard system comprises rigid CFC-free polystyrene insulation and stainless steel reinforcement.
  • Available to suit balcony depths of 160, 180, 200, 220 and 240 mm, and used for the transfer of moment and shear forces.
  • Designed to suit most depths of cantilevered balconies.
  • Suitable for straight runs and internal and external corners.
  • Special configurations can be manufactured to suit specific project requirements including stepped or curved balconies.


- Reinforcement:

  • Duplex stainless steel shear reinforcement designation 1.4462 BS 6744, Grade 500.
  • Tension and compression bars are to be supplied by others.

- ISO Element:

60 mm thick CFC-free, rigid white polystyrene insulation in 750 mm standard length.

- Tubes:

Polypropylene tubes with a 27 mm internal diameter, located at pre-determined positions in the ISO Element to allow for the passage of tension and compression reinforcing bars.

- Rail:

High density polyethylene rail, located on the top edge of the ISO-Element to protect the insulation.

Fire Protection:

  • Isolan systems offer fire resistance to DIN 4102: Fire behaviour of building materials and components.
  • Fire protection can be provided by adding Duripanel fire resistant strips to the base, or base and top, of the ISO-Element, to provide 30, 60 or 90 minutes fire protection.
