SOLON, OH – The LENTON® LOCK S-Series, part of the LENTON LOCK Mechanical Rebar Splicing System from ERICO®, provides many of the same great benefits as the B-Series, except in a smaller package. This unique bolted splice is smaller than the competition and has fewer bolts, which helps reduce installation time and save money on the jobsite. All LENTON LOCK couplers feature patented gripping technology that provides overall structural integrity in tension, compression and stress-reversal applications.
With a performance that exceeds 125% of specified yield on ASTM® A615 Grade 60 rebar, this innovative mechanical rebar splice is designed for use in column splicing, bridge applications, piling, splicing to protruding dowels cast in concrete, closure pours, beams, chimney construction and other demanding splicing applications.
The couplers allow for easy field installation since no bar-end preparation, sawing or swaging is necessary, and they can be installed with just a standard wrench or an impact wrench, depending on coupler size. The bolt heads will shear off when proper installation tightness has been reached, which allows for complete visual inspection.
The S-Series is ideal for use in repair, bent bar, retrofit, precast closure pour and new construction applications. The couplers meet or exceed major international building codes and Department of Transportation requirements, including ACI® 318 Type 1, UBC® Type 1 and IBC® Type 1.
