Ancon Coupling Systems

MBT Couplers
MBT couplers are a remedial solution when you need to join reinforcing bars. They require neither bar end preparation to form threads, nor bar rotation to effect installation. The bars are supported within the coupler by two serrated saddles. As a series of lock-shear bolts are tightened to a predetermined torque, they are embedded into the bar. At the same time the saddles bite into both the bar and the shell of the coupler. Installation is complete when the heads of all of the bolts are sheared off.

The lock-shear bolts on sizes 10mm to 20mm can be tightened using a ratchet wrench. For larger sizes a nut runner is recommended. Impact tools must not be used. MBT couplers can be used to join imperial, plain round or deformed reinforcing bars.

MBT couplers size range: 12-40mm
