The Fortec mechanical bar joining system offers high-quality threaded bar joints spanning diameters between 12 mm and 40 mm. The Fortec joints are used for making joints and anchoring the rebar in reinforced concrete structures.
The sleeve-threaded bar joint transfers the full expected loads for the given reinforcement bar diameter.
The system uses a patented bar end upsetting method in order to eliminate weak spots of the cross-section at the joining point. A metric thread is then made on the upset bar ends by cutting. The threaded bars are joined using threaded sleeves or threaded sleeves and locknuts appropriate for the relevant joints.
The Fortec system is utilised i. e. as reinforcement bar connector in ceiling slabs, connector for the ceiling with a previously concreted wall, ceiling-column joints and walls concreted in sections.
