Reinforcement Continuity Systems
Ancon manufactures three products which provide continuity of reinforcement across construction joints in concrete.
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 parallel-thread. This is the fastest and safest system.
There is no on site bar straightening and virtually no restriction on bar length, so EC2 lap lengths are easily accommodated. A standard timber carrier allows multiple anchors to be installed simultaneously. Unlike re-bend systems where bar length, spacing and diameter are restricted by physical box dimensions, KSN Anchors provide total design flexibility.
UK CARES Technical Approval, TA2-5017.
Ancon Eazistrip consists of pre-bent bars housed within a galvanised steel casing. Once installed, the protective cover is removed and the bars are straightened.
Ancon Starter Bars are supplied fixed to an Ancon coupler. Once cast in concrete, the coupler’s end cap is removed and a threaded continuation bar is installed with a calibrated torque wrench to complete the connection.
