Where the connecting bar is larger than 12mm, continuity of reinforcement can be provided by the installation of an Ancon Coupler Box. These boxes combine standard Keybox casings with the BT mechanical splicing system.
The BT mechanical splice is a full strength connection and is one of the smallest coupler systems in the Ancon range. For further information please download the Ancon Reinforcing Bar Coupler brochure.
Ancon Coupler Boxes are manufactured by Leviat to suit the requirements of specific projects.
