The revolutionary Ancon Thermal Windpost (TWP2) is designed to span vertically between floors, to provide additional lateral support for panels of masonry. It has been specially designed and engineered after extensive research and testing, with a variety of features to improve the thermal performance and repeatability of the junction. 

With robust integral non-combustible mineral fibre insulation in combination with a thermal slot array, using the Thermal Windpost in place of a traditional windpost results in up to 70% reduction in thermal transmission through the span of the section, as well as  improving the consistency and repeatability of fitting insulation in and around the post, ensuring that the intended thermal design is met.

Although it holds the same strong performance, the patented Thermal Windpost is engineered to be up to 35% lighter than traditional windposts, making it much easier to handle on site. The teardrop hem increases the strength of the post and eliminates sharp edges, meaning that safety on site is also improved.

Ancon Thermal Windposts are designed to add thermally efficient lateral support to cavity walls where either wind loads are high, or the span between primary structural members is large. The hemmed leg of the windpost is built into the blockwork, and the blockwork tied through the leg of the windpost to minimise any possible movement or cracking of internal finishes. If a vertical movement joint is required in place of a tied joint, ties with a debonding sleeve on one side can be supplied.
