HM GROUT SLEEVE
have been designed to cater for the rebar tolerance/bar alignment issues associated with joining precast concrete elements together.
The range comprises two standard coupler types: Full-grout sleeves and Half-grout sleeves. In the first, bars are simply inserted to meet at the nominal centre point of the sleeve. In the latter, one end features a threaded insert to accept a pre-threaded bar while the other end is open to accommodate a non-threaded continuation bar. The standard insert suits Ancon Bartec Plus parallel-threaded rebars. Other inserts are available.
These couplers are machined from seamless high strength steel tube and used with Ancon’s high performance, shrinkage-compensated, cementitious grout.
Tests show compliance with the rebar coupler performance specifications in BS 8597 and ISO 15835.
