Ancon® Couplers BT Type C – Mechanical Splices

Overview

Ancon® Couplers BT Type C – Mechanical Splices

The Ancon® BT coupler system supplied by InfraBuild Construction Solutions (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel Reinforcing) consists of two threaded bars that are connected through an internally threaded coupler. Ancon BT couplers produce a full strength joint yet they are among the smallest in the Ancon range, best suited to large scale projects requiring a high volume of couplers. Ancon BT couplers supplied by InfraBuild Construction Solutions are available to suit 12mm, 16mm, 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, 32mm, 36mm and 40mm bar sizes.

The Type C system utilises an Ancon BT coupler, two locknuts and two reinforcing bars, one with a type C1 thread and the other with a type C2 thread. To produce a type C1 thread the bar end is upset and threaded to a length equal to half the length of the coupler plus the length of a locknut. The type C2 thread is produced in a similar way with a thread length equal to the full coupler length plus a locknut. The type C system is suitable for applications where the continuation bar cannot be rotated.

Typical Uses

  • Mechanical splicing of reinforcing bars
  • Used for applications where the continuation bar cannot be rotated

Features

  • Available for all common reinforcing bar diameters
  • Utilises internally metric threaded couplers
  • Does not require any rotation of the continuation bar
  • Fully compliant with the requirements of all Australian road authorities
