When structural steel and plate construction are specified to be used side-by-side with reinforced concrete cast-in-place components, weldable attachment and anchoring become a critical solution for architectural integrity and ease of installation with even the most specialized applications.
A BETTER WAY
Weldable couplers provide a quick and easy solution for connecting reinforcing bar to structural steel sections or plates. Similar to the standard coupler, the weldable coupler is internally taper threaded on one end, with the other end prepared for welding.
These couplers are machined from weldable grades of material depending on rebar size. The couplers are usually arc welded to the structural steel in a fabricating shop. The design of the weld, the selection of electrode, and other relevant choices depend on the chemical and physical properties of the structural steel to which the couplers are welded.
