Shape Codes Cut & Bend Reinforcing Steel

Kosto Ltd also provides cut and bend services according to international standards (BS 4449 & BS 8666). This alternative solution to traditional unscientific cutting and bending on site has proven to be highly effective and encompasses numerous advantages such as:

1. Rebars that are cut and bent according to the quantity,
shape and length required.
2. Consistent Quality and Accuracy
3. Lower material & labour costs
4. Less wastage
5. Less Time consuming compared to traditional methods
6. Better cash flow management
7. Less warehousing costs and reduce space requirements on site
8. Involvement of resident civil engineers

Furthermore, our after sales service remain as one of our priorities in taking care of our valued customers such that we provide various reports on supply for  better documentation and management control and facilitation of QS and final account procedures.

Cut and Bend services can be subjected to clients needs as to either provide their own bar bending schedules or appeal to our resident civil engineers services as well.

Reinforcing Steel Splicing Solutions

THREE-STEP MANUFACTURING PROCESS

Cutting

1. Cutting

The end of the reinforcing bar is sawn square.

Cold-forging

2. Cold forging

The sawn end of the reinforcing bar is enlarged by a patented cold forging process. The core diameter of the bar is increased to a pre-determined diameter.

Threading

3. Threading

Finally, the thread is mechanically cut onto the enlarged end of the bar..

The BARTEC® mechanical splice system consists in enlarging the reinforcing bar ends by cold-upsetting prior to threading them. The bars are cut square before the enlarging operation. The combination of the square cutting and the cold-upsetting reduces the length of the bar by approximately 40 to 75 mm on each end, depending on the bar size. Extra-long threads are used to assist alignment, or when joining bars that cannot be turned. All applications can thus be fulfilled by only one model of coupler, thereby reducing inventory management to a minimum. Bar end preparation must be done exclusively with machines provided by Dextra. Consult us for technical details of our range of machinery.

Splicing methods

Standard-splice

Standard splice

Easy connection by bar rotation until full thread engagement.

Parallel thread :

No risk of thread mis-match.

No risk of cross-threading.

Position-splice

Position splice

Even when both bars cannot be turned, the Bartec system uses a standard Bartec coupler (exactly the same as used for type A):

The coupler is fully engaged onto the extended thread of the connecting bar. The assembly is simply completed by butting the bars end to end and screwing back the coupler onto the first bar until full engagement.

Type-C-assembly

Type C assembly method

Type C assembly method is similar to Type B, with the addition of a lock-nut to maintain the second bar in position

Caging-splice

Caging splice

To connect cages that haven’t been pre-fabricated together or sets of bars that cannot be brought butt to butt, Bartec Caging Splice is your solution.

Both bars are threaded with a standard Bartec thread, and then the free rotating elements of the Caging Splice will restore thread continuity and make the connection.

Transition-splice

Transition splice

When there is a need to splice bars of different sizes, it is allowable in most cases to reduce the size of the larger bar and to use a standard coupler.

However the Bartec system also proposes special transition couplers that conveniently avoid the difficult task of planning in advance the need of transitions

End-anchors

End anchors

A convenient alternative to hooked bars to provide end anchorages in congested areas. Bartec standard anchorage heads are circular and have a net bearing area of 4 times or 9 times the cross-section of the bar, but can also be made to order in other shapes or dimensions to fit the application requirement.

Weldable-couplers

Weldable couplers

For composite construction where concrete reinforcement bars must be welded to structural steel, use Bartec weldable couplers, which are specially made from low carbon steel and which have a large chamfer for bevel welding.
