Constructing core to slab connections in multi-storey concrete frames can present dangers to site operatives. Traditional re-bend continuity systems involve the heavy manual work of on-site bar straightening.
CARES-approved KSN Anchors represent a completely new approach to reinforcement continuity at slab-to-wall construction joints.
The KSN system comprises internally-threaded anchors which are cast into the wall and, during construction of the adjoining slab, accept continuation bars prepared with a Bartec Plus parallel-thread. This is the faster and, above all, safer system.
There is no on site bar straightening and virtually no restriction on bar length, so EC2 lap lengths are easily accommodated. Unlike re-bend systems where bar length, spacing and diameter are restricted by physical box dimensions, KSN Anchors provide total design flexibility.
