Range of Couplers
Leviat's range of Ancon Couplers includes the following:
BT Parallel Threaded Couplers
BT couplers are suitable for use on large scale, high coupler volume projects where they offer a cost-effective solution. The bar ends are enlarged and a parallel thread is cut onto the bar to suit the threaded coupler, which is then tightened using a pipe or chain wrench.
BT Stainless Steel Couplers
BT Stainless Steel couplers are suitable for projects of any size where the strength of the connection is required to match or exceed that of the parent bars, including large scale, high volume coupler applications. These couplers are available in either grade 316 or Duplex stainless steel to match the grades of rebar available in the market.
BT Headed Anchors
BT Headed Anchors create an anchorage in the concrete, replacing the need for cogged or hooked bar ends.
MBT Mechanically Bolted Couplers
MBT Couplers are suitable where it is not convenient to have the bar ends prepared. The bars are supported on two serrated saddles within the coupler and are locked in place by a series of lockshear bolts.
For assistance on the correct choice of coupler, please consult the Coupler Selection Chart or alternatively select the appropriate range from the menu.
Ancon Couplers are sold via approved distributors. For details of your nearest supplier please contact Leviat.

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.
