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.
We are delighted to announce that we will be sponsoring a Bear for the 2021 ‘Bears of Sheffield’ sculpture trail, a unique participative public art event that will raise funds for a new, urgently needed, Cancer and Leukaemia ward at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
Designed to minimise thermal bridging in masonry cavity walls, the patented Ancon Thermal Windpost (TWP2) from Leviat offers up to an impressive 70% reduction in thermal transmission through the span of the windpost.
