MBT Transition Couplers
MBT Transition couplers connect reinforcing bars of different diameters and are suitable for applications when neither bar can be rotated.
They can be installed without any preparation to the bar ends and without any need to rotate bars. The coupler can be rotated to allow access to the bolts for tightening with either a ratchet wrench or a nut runner. They are available to suit bar sizes 12mm to 40mm.
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.
