General description and usage:

  • Consisting of a galvanized steel casing with a dimpled surface to provide an effective concrete bond.
  • Pre-bent bars are housed within the casing and are enclosed by a protective heavy duty plasticized cardboard cover,
  • Each end of the unit is sealed with a polystyrene block in order to prevent the ingress of concrete during construction.
  • Units are nailed to the formwork, or wired back to the main reinforcement cage.
  • After striking the formwork, the cover is removed and the bars are straightened using an Eazistrip re-bending tool.
  • The system is potentially suitable for use in any type of construction joint.


  • Eazistrip systems are manufactured using CARES approved bar.
  • The type of reinforcement is selected by Ancon to provide a suitable degree of ductility, ensuring that it complies with the tensile requirements of BS 4449: 2005 Grade 500C after prefabrication and re-bending on site.
  • Bars are bent in accordance with BS 8666: 2005.

Product Options

Standard box widths:

  • 80.
  • 110.
  • 140.
  • 160.
  • 190.
  • 240.

Note 1: Purpose made units to suit particular applications are manufactured according to specific bar arrangements.

Note 2: When the stirrup width exceeds 220 mm, units will be supplied as two single overlapping hooks, to be positioned side by side.

Note 3: Units containing 16 mm bars are nominally 50 mm deep. On 16 mm diameter type 'U' boxes, the stirrup may be achieved using two shape code 21 bars. These are referenced DH.


  • Eazistrip can be supplied with a Pentaflex hydrostatic seal.
  • The seal is factory fitted inside and outside the box to provide double sided protection against water or moisture permeation along the joint face.
  • Pentaflex is a hydrostatic seal and is not reliant on expansion.
  • Provides a continuous elastic seal by means of the bond between the Pentaflex and the fresh concrete.
