The Ancon Starter Bar System is designed to increase the speed of construction by eliminating the need to cut or drill formwork at construction joints where continuity of reinforcement is required.

The Starter Bar System comprises two elements:

  • The female section consists of a threaded bar, connected to a tapered thread coupler. A nail plate is fixed to the end of the coupler and held in place by a plastic end cap. This prevents the ingress of concrete until the continuation bar is fixed.
  • The male section comprises a straight bar threaded at one end to allow connection to the coupler after striking the formwork and removing end cap and nail plate. The continuation bar is tightened using a calibrated torque wrench.
