BT Headed Anchors
BT Headed 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. BT Headed 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.
BT Headed Anchors can be used in accordance with clause 13.1.4 of AS 3600:2018 to reduce the development length of reinforcing bar. For typical applications, the development length is reduced to 10 times the diameter of the bar*. Refined calculations can be performed using the bearing area (Ahead) values provided in the table below.
|Anchor Length (l)||14||20||24||30|
|External Dia. (d)||38||50||64||76|
|Net Bearing Area (mm2)||980||1649||2765||3830|
|Thread Size||M14 x 2.0||M20 x 2.5||M24 x 3.0||M30 x 3.5|
|Anchor Length (l)||33||36||42||45|
|External Dia. (d)||89||102||114||127|
|Net Bearing Area (mm2)||5366||7153||8822||11077|
|Thread Size||M33 x 3.5||M36 x 4.0||M42 x 4.5||M45 x 4.5|
Note: BTAA50 couplers can be manufactured. Contact Ancon for details.

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.
