Condor Apartments, Docklands, VIC
Ancon BT Couplers and the Keybox Reinforcement Continuity System were supplied to Condor Apartments in Melbourne.
Condor is located at NewQuay Docklands, close to the Central Business District.
The use of Ancon couplers can simplify the design and construction of reinforced concrete and reduce the amount of reinforcement required.
The Ancon range of couplers includes tapered threaded, parallel threaded and mechanically bolted couplers. Solutions are available for all rebar joining applications including wall to slab connection, rebar cage pre-fabrication, remedial work and bar end termination.
Lapped joints are not always an appropriate means of connecting rebar.
Independent tests have verified the enhanced performance specifically offered by Ancon KSN Anchors when used in slab-to-wall moment connections.
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.
