Ancon Anchors create an anchorage in the concrete, replacing the need for cogged or hooked bar ends. They can simplify scheduling and bar placement, and reduce congestion in the concrete.
Designed for use on 12mm to 50mm reinforcing bars. Ancon Anchors are internally threaded with metric threads to suit the BT coupler system. They create a full strength joint, the mode of failure being bar break.
Ancon Anchors are fully compliant with AS 3600: 2009 that states that providing the anchor's cross sectional area is at least ten times the cross sectional area of the bar, the development length is 0.4 times that of a straight bar.
