Leviat manufactures a wide range of engineered Ancon reinforcement systems for use at construction joints in concrete. Products include threaded starter bars, reinforcing bar couplers, headed anchors and re-bend continuity systems. Stainless steel reinforcement is also available.
UniCoil16 are threaded starter bars for connecting panels and floors in precast and tilt-up construction. UniCoil has a higher yield (137kN) and ultimate tensile strength (179kN) than standard N16 bars, so less reinforcement may be required saving material and labour. The smooth, continuously rolled UniCoil thread is fast and simple to install.
Metric Threaded Bars
Metric Threaded Bars, otherwise known as Starter Bars, are used for joining wall panels to floor panels, in addition to wall panels to mezzanine floors. The bars are suitable for use with the Ancon Qwikfoot threaded inserts and round threaded inserts range after the panels have been erected to join the floors, providing a full strength, slip-free connection.
This starter bar provides a cost-effective solution due to its high strength, which can consequently mean less reinforcement may be required saving materials and labour.
Musclestart Socket Bars
This is a starter bar system which provides a full bar strength joint for precast concrete panels and floors. Socket Bars are manufactured by a patented swaging process which locks the seamless threaded insert onto the bar.
BT Couplers are the smallest in the Ancon range and are the most cost-effective when used on large scale, high volume projects. The end of the bar is cut square and enlarged by cold forging, before a parallel metric thread is cut. The threaded end can be proof tested to a force equal to the characteristic yield strength of the bar. Click here for more information.
Stainless Steel BT Couplers
Stainless steel BT couplers are available in 12, 16, 20, 25, 28, 36, 40 and 50mm bar diameters.
Keybox Reinforcement Continuity Systems
The Keybox system is a quick and easy method of maintaining continuity of reinforcement at construction joints in concrete. It comprises a galvanised steel casing, with a dimpled surface to provide effective concrete bond, which houses pre-bent bars beneath a protective cover. Click here for more information.
KSN Anchor Reinforcement Continuity Systems
KSN Anchors, in conjunction with BT parallel-threaded reinforcing bars, provide continuity of reinforcement at construction joints. This system is ideal for use where re-bending of bars is keen to be avoided or the continuation bar is too long to be fitted in a continuity box. Click here for more information.
Stainless Steel Reinforcement
Our range of Ancon stainless steel reinforcing bars is the most comprehensive range available. Several grades of plain and ribbed rebar, including high proof strength material, are available. Click here for more information.
With their new European Technical Assessment (ETA), Halfen HZA serrated anchor channels fulfil all requirements of AS 5216:2021 and can be used in projects across Australia.
Leviat has released an enhanced version of its popular Ancon Shearfix design software that enables engineers to maintain a flat concrete slab at column heads by reinforcing the area against punching shear with a prefabricated, stud-rail system.
