The choice of the type of coupler used depends on the ­application. Standard Coupling Grub Screws – Optional Paint – Visual Indicator Center Pin – Optional Anchorages for GEWI® Threadbars Anchorages which are to be embedded in concrete can be carried out using an anchor nut (hexagonal nut). Transition Coupler Tensioning Coupler For couplers exposed to compression load. a steel plate and a lock nut. an anchorage can be ­ realized using a flanged nut and a lock nut.Couplers for GEWI® Threadbars Couplers allow GEWI® Threadbars to be coupled or extended reliably and efficiently. predominately in geotechnical applications. According to UK Standards. DSI provides solutions for connecting fixed and therefore not ­pivotable GEWI® bars. For the connection of GEWI® Threadbars with steel structures. they prevent the development of cracks in structural concrete. s In addition. However it is important that the two threadbars meet centrally within the ­ coupler and remain so during installation to ensure a correct load ­ transfer. Coupler strength = 1. In addition. Static Coupler Dynamic Coupler For the connection of GEWI® Threadbars with different diameters.3 x Yield Strength of the bar in accordance with German Approval Certificates. Torqued to a predetermined value. this equates to 1. a weldable anchor piece is available. 5 . lock nuts can be omitted. Lock nuts must be used at each end of the couplers. The longer ­ dynamic couplers are to be used when vibration and cyclical load r ­eversals are anticipated. ­ pecial transition couplers are available. This can be achieved by using grub screws and a center pin. The right position of the GEWI® Threadbars within the coupler can be checked easily using colored marks. The static coupler is used either in constant tension applications or in a ­ combination of tension and compression loading.08 of Ultimate Strength.
