Mechanical anchors, often called headed bars, are secured to the end of a length of reinforcing steel bar (rebar), creating anchorage within the concrete. This approach greatly simplifies reinforcing bar placement and reduces congestion. Headed bars are often used as a replacement for hooked bars. nVent provides a variety of headed bar solutions including the nVent LENTON Terminator. The nVent LENTON Terminator incorporates the time-tested and field-proven nVent LENTON tapered thread to attach the “head” to the reinforcing bar.
Typical applications for nVent LENTON Terminator include beam to column, roof to column, piles to caisson, and future extensions. nVent LENTON Terminator is ideal for all forms of construction including dams, subways, bridges, high rise buildings, water treatment plants and stadiums.
