SteelAsia has introduced its own brand of mechanical couplers called CONNECT. The couplers together with SteelAsia’s rebar threading services, ensure the safety of the material and provide time savings, as well as simplify the management of rebar fixing and installation.
In this mechanical splicing system, the coupled joints are stronger than the rebar, thus, achieving bar-break performance. SteelAsia uses a Type 2 coupler that is suitable for seismic areas.
Overall, the process results in lower costs with zero waste and faster, and more efficient, rebar operations. This also makes construction sites safer workplaces. The mechanical couplers and threaded rebar are delivered to the project site together—ready for splicing.
SteelAsia supplies more than 80% of the steel bar requirements for land, air, sea, power, and communications infrastructure. The preferred supplier of the largest contractors and property developers in the Philippines.
The predominantly consumed steel product of the construction industry and are used specifically for concrete reinforcement.
Cut and bend is a value added rebar solution for the optimization and fabrication of rebar in a factory environment.
The use of mechanical couplers can create material and time savings and simplify the management of rebar fixing and installation. SteelAsia offers Bartec couplers.
A factory pre-fabricated reinforcement steel in parallel and transverse grids that are fused with resistance welding technology. This is the first of its kind in the Philippines.
