LENTON® Taper Threaded Rebar Couplers

LENTON® is the world’s most widely used mechanical rebar splicing system available today.

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





LENTON® Terminator™

The LENTON® Terminator™ is an over-sized end anchor secured to the end of a length of reinforcing steel, creating anchorage within the concrete.

This approach greatly simplifies rebar placement and reduces congestion. The LENTON Terminator incorporates the time-tested and field-proven LENTON tapered thread.

Features:

  • No special training required
  • Eliminates rebar hook – simplifies bar placement
  • Minimizes embedment lengths – reduces congestion
  • Simplifies concrete placement
  • Greater design flexibility
  • Faster installation lowers in-place costs
  • Available for standard rebar dimensions

 

Applications:

  • LENTON Terminator is ideal for all forms of construction, including dams, subways, bridges, high-rises, water treatment plants, and stadiums
  • The Terminator is frequently used for Beam/Column and Roof/Column applications
  • Can also be used for future extensions to Beam/Column and Roof/Column connections

 






LENTON® LOCK

Lenton LockLENTON® LOCK, a new in-situ rebar splice from ERICO®, requires no bar-end preparation.
It is ideal for new construction, repair or retrofit applications. The LENTON LOCK coupler
features patented gripping technology that provides for the development of full rebar strength and improved overall structural integrity in tension, compression, stress-reversal and dynamic
applications. This innovative mechanical rebar splice is designed for use in column splicing, bridge applications, piling, splicing to protruding dowels cast in concrete, closure pours, beams, chimney construction and other demanding splicing applications.

 LENTON LOCK couplers meet or exceed major international building codes and Department 

of Transportation (DOT) requirements, including CalTrans’ Ultimate Splice requirement. 

 LENTON LOCK couplers allow for easy and simple field installation since no bar-end 

preparation, sawing or swaging is necessary. The couplers can be installed with just a standard wrench or an impact wrench depending on coupler size. The bolt heads will shear off when proper installation tightness has been reached, which allows for completely visual inspection. 

 LENTON LOCK works as a one-step transition on ASTM (in-lb) and metric rebar. For Canadian rebar sizes, contact ERICO for transition compatibility. The completed connection performs 

similar to a continuous piece of rebar. In testing, the couplers demonstrated less than 0.0039 in (0.10 mm) of slip.

Features:

  • Meets or exceeds major international building code and Department of Transportation  requirements, including CalTrans’ Ultimate Splice requirement, IBC®, UBC® and ACI® 318 Type 2, DIN 1045 and BS8110
  • Uses standard rebar; requires no bar-end preparation such as  sawing or swaging — ideal for in-situ splices
  • Is smaller than other bolted splices currently available
  • Performs like a continuous piece of rebar
  • Works in repair, bent bar, retrofit, precast closure pour and new construction applications
  • Meets slip criteria of less than 0.10 mm (0.0039 in)
  • Provides superior fatigue performance
  • Works with a variety of standard US and international rebar grades
  • Installs quickly and easily using simple hand tools — does not  require special skilled labor
  • Allows for simple visual inspection
  • Works as one-step transition on ASTM (in-lb) and metric rebar

 






Quick-Wedge™

ERICO´s Quick-Wedge™ splicing system is a simple and quick alternative for joining small diameter reinforcing bars.

The splice consists of an oval shaped steel sleeve and a wedge pin. Installation is made in seconds by over-lapping rebar in the steel sleeve and driving the wedge pin between the bars with a portable hydraulic hand tool.

Features:

  • Minimizes length of exposed rebar dowel – eliminates excessive concrete chipping in retrofit installations
  • Bars can be cut to the approximate size spanning between the rebar being joined
  • Lightweight hand-held hydraulic pin driver designed for minimum clearance situations
  • Joins #4 (12 mm), #5 (16 mm) and #6 (20 mm) reinforcing bars
  • In-situ splicing with minimum dowel length requirement for bar smaller or equal to 20 mm
  • Low cost
  • Visual inspection possible
  • Simple to use
  • Connections can be made in virtually any weather
  • Can make up to 100 splices per hour

Applications

Lapped bar capability and minimal exposed bar ends make the Quick-Wedge system ideal for repairs or expansions including:
  • Bridge Repair
  • Road Repair
  • Precast
  • Building Extensions
  • Spiral Reinforcement
  • Stirrups and Ties
  • Pile Extensions
  • Epoxy Coated Rebar

 






LENTON® Mason Lock Coupler

Lenton Mason Lock CouplerCode changes within the American Concrete Institute’s (ACI®) Concrete and Masonry code require longer lap lengths in masonry construction. This code change means more congestion in the masonry cells and more difficulty in construction. To alleviate this problem, builders can either use open-cell blocks, which are quite expensive, or use mechanical rebar couplers to eliminate the lap.

The LENTON® taper-threaded splice – one of the most widely used mechanical splicing systems in the world today – quickly and easily connects two pieces of rebar. This cost-effective connector uses the time-tested, field-proven taper thread for assurance of strength, consistency and
reliability while simplifying installation.

LENTON splices are designed for use on worldwide standard grades of rebar and meet ACI-318, BS 8110 and DIN 1045 full-tension splice requirements and many other international standards. No “special” high strength, enlarged thread section or increased rebar size is necessary, thus allowing the supply of rebar from multiple sources for maximum cost savings.

Features:

  • Eliminates lap splices in CMU walls
  • Adds structural integrity
  • Fast and cost effective system
  • Accelerates construction schedules
  • Taper-thread design for easy installation
  • Excellent for future extension applications
  • Available in sizes #3 – #18 (10 mm – 57 mm)
  • Accommodates unexpected design or construction changes
  • Conforms to ACI® codes
  • Minimizes congestion in CMU wall
  • Approved by major building codes and agencies around the world
  • Exceeds Type 1 and Type 2 splice requirements
  • Exceeds ACI, UBC®, IBC® and ICC® full-tension splice requirements





LENTON® Interlok™

For precast construction, ERICO offers the LENTON® InterLok™ rebar splicing system. It is designed to provide structural integrity between load bearing precast members such as columns beams and shear walls.

LENTON InterLok uses a specially formulated cementitious grout in conjunction with the LENTON taper threaded system. It offers efficient, versatile and cost-effective connections.

Features:

  • Convenient and flexible to use
  • Eliminates unsightly and costly patchwork
  • For all rebar sizes from 16 mm (#5) through 57 mm (#18)
  • Optimizes production time while improving integrity of the structure
  • Maintains structural integrity through precast sections – reinforcing steel acts as one continuous bar
  • Tensile loads are transferred through the rebar – not dependent on the compressive strength of the concrete
  • Connection is not detrimental to surrounding concrete as no heat is produced
Applications
  • Taper-threaded and grouted precast construction splices
