LENTON ® TERMINATOR from ERICO
Oct 01, 2013 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A Reliable, Economical Alternative to Hooked Rebar Anchorage
SOLON, Ohio – LENTON® TERMINATOR from ERICO is an oversized half coupler that secures to the end of reinforcing steel and efficiently replaces conventional hooked rebar. It reduces congestion, thereby facilitating easier rebar placement and lower placing costs. Utilizing the time-tested, field-proven LENTON taper-threaded end, this unique embedment anchor is designed for use on rebar sizes #4 (12 mm) through #18 (57 mm).
LENTON TERMINATOR – based on the Shear Cone Theory (on which ACI®-355 is based) – is a proven solution for contractors and design engineers who need a simple, reliable and economical alternative to hooked rebar anchorage. This reliable mechanical system minimizes embedment length and allows for faster installation, which reduces labor costs. It also simplifies bar placement, reduces rebar congestion by up to 60% and provides greater design flexibility.
LENTON TERMINATOR has been shown to be compliant with ACI 318 and IBC® Types 1 and 2 with multiple rebar types and grades, including grade 80. The LENTON TERMINATOR family also complies with the requirements of ASTM® A970 and is recognized by both IAPMO® (Report 0188) and ICC (ER3967) evaluation services. It also meets other worldwide codes, and can be used with virtually any type of reinforcing bar available in the world.
