Original Press Release:
LENTON® Taper Threaded Splices, Connecting the World
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - SOLON, Ohio, April 2005 - The unique LENTON® taper-threaded splice is the most widely used mechanical splicing system 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 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
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.
These splices are the slimmest couplers available and their innovative taper-threaded design makes them the most reliable system on the market. 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. Also, weldable and bolt couplers are available for joining structural steel to reinforced concrete. Couplers can be coated to maximize corrosion protection.
LENTON taper-threaded splices are:
o The fastest system to install, accelerating construction schedules.
o Problem solving. Threading at the fabrication shop eliminates installation equipment problems at the job site; the taper-thread design eliminates cross-threading problems.
o Excellent for future extension applications.
o Available in sizes 10mm - 57mm (#3 - #18)
o Approved by major building codes and agencies around the world
o Additional product approvals in Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, The United Kingdom and The United States
