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 Leviat 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.

The health, safety and wellbeing of all those who work with us and for us, as well as the general public, is always our No. 1 priority.
From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
