fischer fixing systems

The fischer Group of Companies will be presenting a selection of fixing and system solutions and services for tunnel construction projects at the World Tunnel Congress in Athens from 15 to 18 May. In addition to steel and chemical heavy-duty fixings, the exhibition stand in Zone D, booth L6 will also feature installation and fire protection systems in addition to inserts (fischer anchor channels). fischer’s experts will also be speaking to visitors about its services, which include supporting its partners throughout every construction phase until the project’s successful completion.
Large parts of the Procuratie Vecchie (Old Procuracies) in Saint Mark’s Square, Venice, are being opened to the public for the first time in 500 years. The aim is to strengthen the connection between the famous building, the town and its visitors. The Procuratie palace has been restored over five years. fischer’s fastening products were used to reinforce ceilings and replace old fastenings such as wooden pegs and riveted joints as well as for many other applications.
Reinforcing bars embedded in mortar are increasingly used in new builds as well as during renovations and conversions of existing buildings. The fischer Group of Companies is introducing its new injection mortar, the RebarConnect FIS RC II, which not only makes post-installed rebar connections quicker but also safer and more efficient.
Piz da Peres, meaning ‘stone peak’ in Ladin, is the name of a new via ferrata in San Vigilio (Enneberg) in the Italian province of Bolzano. fischer’s FIS EM Plus epoxy resin mortars and the new fischer battery-operated dispenser FIS DB S Pro were used to anchor the wire ropes and steps into the rock.
Adhesives can be a clever alternative to traditional fastening methods, depending on the application. fischer offers many product solutions that offer the advantage of safety, flexibility, easy installation and multifunctionality when using these connection techniques. Five complementary hybrid sealants and adhesives from fischer’s range now cover around 80 per cent of typical sealant and adhesive applications. Flex MS and Express MS are the latest additions to the product range.
