Product: Bartek Connections
Product Description: BARTEK TBR Insert is a cast in-situ, headed ferrule that accepts a Reidbar™ starter bar to form a connection between pours in concrete structures.
Bartek connections are used for two main applications – between core walls and floor slabs; and also in the connection of precast wall panels.
After the placement of panel on-site / stripping of formwork on-site, the starter bar is simply screwed in until it is fully engaged in the insert. Installation of the Reidbar™ starter bar requires only six turns to fully engage bar, compared to 28 when using metric bar connection, thus producing massive time savings on site.
Bartek TBR Inserts and Couplers are a complete bar break system using 500mpa Reidbar™ TB Inserts
