LENTON® Standard Couplers

LENTON® Standard CouplersPrint this page

LENTON®  Standard Couplers are designed to splice the same diameter bars where one bar is free to move and can be rotated.

Features

  • Unique self-aligning taper-threaded design provides continuity and structural integrity
  • Spliced bars behave as continuous lengths of reinforcing steel bars by providing full strength in tension, compression and stress reversal applications
  • Designed to withstand man-made blasts, and other seismic events
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Develops higher tensile strength than lap splicing
  • Provides full load transfer with the slimmest and shortest coupler possible
  • Product Performance – LENTON standard couplers are designed to meet or exceed:
