BT Weldable Couplers
Ancon BT weldable couplers provide a convenient means of connecting reinforcing bars to structural steel plates or sections, with a BT thread form on one end; and the other end prepared for welding to the steel.
These couplers are manufactured from either Steel Grade 1045 to ASTM A576 or Steel Grade C45R to EN10083.
The load connections at the connection must be determined by the designer responsible for the structural element, along with the type and size of weld required. Other important considerations are the type of electrode to be used, which must be matched to the properties of the plate and tube, and to the site conditions under which the welding will be undertaken. Welders should be qualified for the type of weld required.
BT Weldable Couplers are made to order to project specific requirements. Contact Leviat for further 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.
