Exceeds all international known requirements for rebar couplers, including reinforcement design specifications for seismic events
Designed to exceed the actual stress and strain capacity of all reinforcement grades, independent of variable heats
Behaves like continuous reinforcement and provides full utilization of the actual strength and strain properties of the reinforcement; the HRC 400 will not limit the usable ductility of the reinforcement.
All bars can be spliced in one section (no need to stagger the couplers).
Female and male part are machined as separate components. This results in consistent high performance of the splice (including very small slip) – independent of the natural variation of rebar shape and rib pattern.
Can easily be combined with any other HRC Product series at the other rebar end.
On the construction site
Taper Threads provide a fast, simple and self-locking installation
Coarse threads are little sensitive for tolerances and rough field conditions
Reliable Quality Control provided by visual inspection and a torque wrench
HRC 490 Position Coupler – Splice long and high dimension reinforcement without turning the bars
