CS Coupler Strip
Ancon CS Coupler Strips offer all the benefits of CB Coupler Boxes and are specifically designed to simplify rebar continuity at joints where walls are curved on plan. The flexible steel strip used to carry the couplers is nailed directly to curved shuttering.
The CS Coupler Strip utilises the Ancon CARES-approved CXL mechanical rebar coupler system. CXL couplers are integral to the CS Strip and accept CXL parallel-threaded reinforcing bars.
Ancon CXL Continuation Bars
Unlike re-bend continuity systems where bar lengths are restricted to the box dimensions, there is virtually no restriction on continuation bar length with CS Coupler Strips. Grade B500B or B500C continuation bars, threaded with a CXL metric thread, are supplied by Ancon in 12mm, 16mm, 20mm and 25mm diameter. The CXL system is CARES approved and produces a full strength joint.
Details of the coupler strip range, along with installation guidance, can be found in the technical literature below.
Brick support systems from Ancon can be supplied with Fire-Tested Thermal Breaks to minimise heat loss through cold bridging, and improve the energy efficiency of your building project.
Ancon has extended its technical services offering with the addition of webinars to complement a highly successful CPD-approved seminar programme of over 30 years.
