Reinforcing bar couplers.
Bartec Plus couplers offer a full strength connection together with enhanced fatigue resistance, yet are the smallest in the Ancon range. They are suitable for projects of any size, including those requiring a high volume of couplers, such as road and rail bridges.
Each end of the rebar to be joined is cut square and enlarged using a cold forge process. A thread is then formed on the enlarged bar end using a thread rolling machine. The thread is such that the cross sectional area of the bar ends are not reduced ensuring the strength of the connection matches or exceeds that of the parent bars.
