Bartec CXL Rebar Coupler

Bartec Rebar Couplers

Bartec Couplers

Bartec Couplers are only available in selected territories in the Middle East. Please contact Ancon 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.
