|Bartec Couplers are only available in selected territories in the Middle East. Please contact Leviat for locations.|
Bartec parallel threaded couplers are suited to projects which require high volumes of couplers. They produce a full strength joint and yet are one of the smallest couplers in the Ancon range. The ends of the bars to be joined are cut square and enlarged by cold forging to increase their core diameter and so ensure that the joint is stronger than the bar. The couplers are usually supplied attached to the reinforcing bar.
Bartec couplers comply in all respects to BS EN 1992-1-1: 2004 (Eurocode 2) and BS8110 when used with reinforcing bars to BS4449.
Full destructive tests have been carried out to show compliance with the following codes: ACI 349; ASME III DIV 2 (ACI 359); ACI 318; CSA CAN 3 – N2872; DCL Technical Approval TAC-132.
Bartec BT Type A
The Type A coupler is used for applications where the continuation bar can be rotated. The ends of the bars are upset and threaded for half the length of the coupler.
Bartec BT Type B
The Bartec Type B coupler uses the same coupler as the Type A system, but one bar is threaded for the full coupler length. It is designed for applications where it is difficult but not impossible to rotate the continuation bar.
Bartec BT Type C
Bartec Type C has an additional locknut and is used where the continuation bar cannot be rotated. The continuation bar is threaded for the full length of the coupler plus the length of the locknut.
Bartec Reducer Couplers
Bartec couplers are also available to connect bars of different diameters. Contact us for details.
Construction industry remains open. Manufacturing at Leviat continues through latest national lockdown.
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.
