LENTON® Taper Threaded Splices – Connecting the World
Oct 01, 2013 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SOLON, Ohio – The unique LENTON® taper threaded splice is one of the most widely used mechanical splicing systems in the world today. In the field, it quickly and easily connects two pieces of rebar. It uses the time-tested, field-proven taper thread to help ensure strength, consistency and reliability, while simplifying installation.
LENTON splices are designed for use on worldwide standard grades of rebar and meet ÖNORM EN 1992, IBC®, and ACI® 318 Types 1 and 2, AS3600, BS EN 1992-1-1 and DIN EN 1992-1-1 requirements, along with many other international standards. No high-strength, enlarged thread section or increased rebar size is necessary, allowing the supply of rebar from multiple sources for maximum cost savings.
The LENTON system is available in several styles to meet virtually any design need. Applications include standard bar-to-bar connections, precaging applications, hooked bar applications, closure pours, precast connections, rebar terminations and anchorages, transition splices, segmental construction and connections to structural steel.
The innovative taper-threaded design makes them one of the most reliable couplers on the market today. The LENTON taper threaded range consists of standard and transition couplers, as well as positional couplers to join bars of any shape, size and diameter. Weldable and bolt couplers are also available to join structural steel to reinforced concrete. Couplers can be coated to maximize corrosion protection or they can be provided in stainless steel.
The benefits of LENTON taper threaded splices include:
- One of the fastest systems to install, accelerating construction schedules
- Threading at the fabrication shop helps reduce installation equipment problems at the job site
- The taper-thread design helps eliminate cross-threading problems
- Excellent for future extension applications
