AR Masonry Support

The chamfered ARMK angle profile supports brick masonry and transfers the weight to the supporting structure behind it, while a traditional masonry beam transfers its support reactions to the edges of the opening.

The masonry support uses an ARMM compression part with double nuts and washers. Length adjustment is made by turning the nut and locking with the opposite nut. The end plate has an oval hole, into which a post-installation anchor can be installed during assembly.

ART and ARTK Masonry Support Rail Fastener

Used to connect the system-perforated support bracket to the ARS suspension part. The round bar's swivel joint with a standard clasp allows for lateral adjustment of the joint. The high ARTK type is intended for openings where the compression tie with a standard model would come too close to the edge of the supporting structure. A reinforcement bar is threaded through the holes in the vertical flanges to tie the brick wall and the bracket together.

AR Suspended Connection



A-BEAM® and Anstar’s connection technology form part of the frame system, offering cost-efficiency and flexibility for construction.


Diagonal ties are used in concrete sandwich panels to connect the outer skin with the inner skin through the insulation layer. The ties transfer the self-weight and wind loads of the outer skin to the inner skin.

Fastening plates

Fastening plates are used on cast-in-place and prefabricated structures to provide a mounting surface for welding.

Suspension components

Anstar has developed bracket and support systems for efficient and affordable construction. The connection pieces are easy to install both at the prefabrication factory and on site.

Balcony connections

Balcony hinges are used to transfer horizontal forces from the balcony to the building frame. The hinged connection enables vertical movement.

Rebar bolts and anchor bolts

high-quality rebar and anchor bolts are responsibly made with recycled steel. There are two different basic types of bolts: ATP- ja AHP® rebar bolts and ALP® anchor bolts

AEP® hidden bracket

AEP® hidden brackets are used to fasten a concrete element beam or Anstar A-BEAM® to the side of a concrete element column, wall or another beam. 

AOK® support

The AOK® support is used in a hollow-core slab floor opening as the load-bearing structure for the end of the slab. The AOK® support has been granted a patent, which enables exclusive rights to the most cost-effective support in the market.

Column shoes

Column shoes are used in light- and heavy-duty column extension and foundation connections; wall shoes are used in the tension connections of stiffening wall and shaft elements, retaining walls and earth pressure walls that stiffen the building.

Rebar couplers

Rebar couplers are used for joining rebars with full tension capacity. The ends of bars to be joined are provided with threads, and the bars are joined using a coupler sleeve that transfers the force on the rebar across the connection.

Bracing connections

ADE® and ADK® bracing connections are designed for stabilising the concrete element frame. These connections
are used in the joints between concrete columns and stabilising steel bracings.
