Ancon Anchors create an anchorage in the concrete, replacing the need for cogged or hooked bar ends. They can simplify scheduling and bar placement, and reduce congestion in the concrete.
Designed for use on 12mm to 50mm reinforcing bars. Ancon Anchors are internally threaded with metric threads to suit the BT coupler system. They create a full strength joint, the mode of failure being bar break.
Ancon Anchors are fully compliant with AS 3600: 2009 that states that providing the anchor's cross sectional area is at least ten times the cross sectional area of the bar, the development length is 0.4 times that of a straight bar.
|Anchor Length (l)||16||20||24||30||36||45|
|External Dia. (d)||38||50||64||76||102||127|
|Thread Size||M16 x 2.0||M20 x 2.5||M24 x 3.0||M30 x 3.5||M36 x 4.0||M45 x 4.5|
Note: BTAA50 couplers can be manufactured. Contact Ancon for details.

Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
