Range of Couplers
The Ancon range includes the following:
MBT Mechanically Bolted Couplers
MBT Couplers are suitable where it is not convenient to have the bar ends prepared. The bars are supported on two serrated saddles within the coupler and are locked in place by a series of lockshear bolts.
BT Parallel Threaded Couplers
BT couplers are suitable for use on large scale, high coupler volume projects where they offer a cost-effective solution. The bar ends are enlarged and a parallel thread is cut onto the bar to suit the threaded coupler, which is then tightened using a pipe or chain wrench.
Ancon Anchors create an anchorage in the concrete, replacing the need for cogged or hooked bar ends.
For assistance on the correct choice of coupler, please consult the Coupler Selection Chart or alternatively select the appropriate range from the menu.
Ancon reinforcing bar couplers are available through Fletcher Reinforcing and other leading reinforcement suppliers.
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.
