CELO anchors utilised in the Middle East 27 April 2022

CELO says it is continuously providing high-quality fixing products that are able to adapt to the needs and conditions of different markets, such as ResiFIX Pure Epoxy and BAZ A4 anchors which are being used in the Middle East for glass reinforced concrete (GRC).

The anchors being used in this project are being used to fix the cladding brackets to the structure. The ResiFIX Pure Epoxy has been specially designed for large projects, it is ETA approved for cracked concrete and achieves high load values due to its chemical resistance. The BAZ also has an ETA rating option one for cracked concrete and is suited for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications. It has a fire resistance class of R120, complementing the GRC cladding. 

GRC is a versatile and increasingly popular building material, with a wide range of uses and has become a popular façade cladding material in the Middle East. This is due to it being lighter than precast concrete - GRC can be up to 80% lighter compared to traditional concrete, making it easier to handle and has lower transport costs. Various 3D shapes can also be produced - it can be easily moulded into any shape and can be coloured to match project requirements. Due to the high glass fibre content, GRC also has a high-tensile strength and its high polymer content makes it flexible and resistant to cracking.
