Starter Bar System
Ancon Starter Bar System
The Ancon Starter Bar system is designed to increase the speed of construction at joints where continuity of reinforcement is required, or for fixing applications using standard metric bolts or studding. Use of this system can simplify concrete design and eliminate the need to drill formwork or concrete.
The system consists of a bar (or female section), supplied fixed to an Ancon coupler. The continuation bar (or male section) comprises a straight bar threaded at one end to allow connection to an Ancon tapered thread coupler. Starter bars are available in various standard configurations.
The female section incorporates either a tapered thread coupler, which is approved by UK CARES and accepts a tapered thread continuation bar, or a parallel thread adaptor which accepts a standard metric bolt or studding.
Ancon couplers exceed the tensile strength for reinforcing bars to BS 4449: 1997 and are designed to meet the requirements of BS 8110.
Ancon has won a 2018 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category, for the successful introduction and on-going development of its advanced composite, low thermal conductivity, Teplo wall tie range.
Ancon is proud to announce the launch of its new company and brand logos as part of its on-going evolution.
