Starter Bar Continuity System

This starter bar system is a cost effective, safe way of producing a good quality joint in reinforced concrete without damage to formwork.

Standard length of case=1.25m. Bars can be at various centres.

S = 150mm centres = 8 connection bars
S = 200mm centres = 6 connection bars

Depth of casing:
12mm bar = 40mm
16mm bar = 50mm

A large variety of special sizes and different profiles can be made to order.

Starter bars BST 500 s, which means the yield point is 500N/mm2 and the tensile is 550N/mm2. Rebending can be done under low temperatures.
All steel is CARES approved.

The rebar bending area is completely inside the housing due to conical shaped holes. Grooves with slight perforation ensure excellent connection to the concrete and shear load transmission. The steel casing remains firm and stable in concrete.

The ends of casing are closed to avoid the entrance of grout. Diameter of bending rolls DBR=6xds (in accordance with German standard DIN 1045, 18.3.30) at rebending area. Trapezoidal shape of casing improves the embedment in concrete.

No corrosion of the edges of the galvanised steel casing due to its embedment in concrete.
Galvanised steel cover plate. High stability and easy to remove
