Eazistrip Non-Standard Range
Eazistrip Reinforcement Continuity Systems are designed to maintain continuity of reinforcement at construction joints in concrete. Formwork design is simplified and there is no need to drill shuttering. Each unit consists of a galvanised steel casing which is dimpled to provide an effective concrete bond. Pre-bent bars are housed within the box and are secured by a protective cover. When the cover is removed the bars can be straightened ready for lapping onto the main reinforcement.
Bars must be straightened only once, using an Eazistrip re-bending tool.
Ancon Eazistrip has UK CARES Technical Approval, TA2-5017.
The system is manufactured using CARES approved bar. The type of reinforcement is selected by Ancon Building Products to provide a suitable degree of ductility, ensuring that it complies with the tensile requirements of BS 4449: 2005 Grade B500C after prefabrication and re-bending on site. The bars are bent in accordance with BS 8666: 2005.
Eazistrip Reinforcement Continuity Systems are suitable for use with designs undertaken in accordance ith BS EN 1992-1-1: 2004 (Eurocode 2) and BS 8110-1:1997.
Ancon is able to manufacture according to your specific bar arrangement. The most common shapes are shown below.

Eazistrip Water Stop
When the potential for water ingress through the construction joint is a major concern, Eazistrip can be supplied with a Pentaflex hydrostatic seal which provides protection against moisture permeation along the joint face.
Ancon will further expand its wide product range with new product launches at the UK’s largest event for specifiers in the built environment, Ecobuild 2017.
Ancon’s latest animated video evaluates the limitations of traditional re-bend continuity systems, including the dangers associated with them, and presents a safer, easier, quicker solution - the KSN Anchor System.
