Description

General:

  • Available to suit bar sizes 12–50 mm.
  • Couplers are installed quickly and easily on site without the need for specially trained personnel or specialized, expensive machinery.
  • The compact design of each coupler ensures suitability for use in confined situations where space is restricted or where the loss of cover must be minimized.
  • Couplers are normally supplied fitted to the end of threaded bar.
  • In order to ensure correct installation, Ancon Building Products specifies the use of a torque wrench.

Features/ Usage:

  • Suitable for connecting two bars of the same diameter, where one bar can be rotated.
  • The couplers comprise an internally threaded sleeve with two right hand threads which are tapered towards the middle of the coupler.
  • The bar ends are square cut and a tapered thread is cut onto the bar. A nominal allowance of +25 mm should be allowed per threaded bar end for square cutting the bar end.
  • The internal threads are protected by plastic end caps.
  • The threaded ends of the continuation bar are protected by plastic thread protectors.

Performance:

  • Standard tapered thread couplers are designed for use in concrete structures to meet the requirements of BS EN 1992-1-1: 2004 (Eurocode 2) and BS 8110 for mechanical splices. They are designed to achieve failure loads in excess of 115% of the characteristic strength of grade 500 rebar.
  • The Standard range of Tapered Thread Couplers has been tested and approved by UK CARES to show compliance with the requirements of BS EN 1992-1-1: 2004 (Eurocode 2) and BS 8110.
