Arts and Entertainment Venue Concrete Reinforcement

Rebar connection and anchorage solutions for museums, theaters, stadiums, arenas, auditoriums, convention centers, casinos and hotels

nVent LENTON has been a pioneer in the concrete construction industry for decades. We changed rebar splicing with our threaded technology, and we offer a full portfolio of proven products that bring strength to precast and cast-in-place reinforced concrete forms.

We excel at matching construction requirements to a stronger rebar connection, anchorage or termination solution. Over the years, we have specialized in helping engineers and contractors improve the structural integrity of arts and entertainment venues including museums, theaters, stadiums, arenas, auditoriums, convention centers, casinos and hotels.

Our experts know what it takes to make more reliable rebar connections in concrete seating decks, inclined columns, beams, stairwells and other foundational elements as part of your building project.

The entire nVent LENTON line of mechanical rebar splices has replaced many conventional systems such as welding and lap splicing. Our products require no special training or external power source, are quicker to install and inspect, reduce crane time and improve the tensile strength of the splice.

Lap vs. Mechanical Splices

The benefits add up when you choose mechanical splicing connections for building reinforced concrete structures.

Solar Farm

Lap Splices

  • Tend to have poor cyclic performance. To prevent concrete splitting, additional rebar may be required for confinement.
  • Present design constraints. Lap splices double the number of bars leading to rebar congestion, which can restrict the flow of aggregates.
  • Have hidden costs. Lap splicing can involve time-consuming calculations and overestimating mistakes.
Additive Facility

Mechanical splices:

  • Are proven reliable. Mechanical splices behave similarly to a continuous piece of rebar and offer superior cyclic performance.
  • Are design friendly. Reducing rebar congestion and improving concrete consolidation are easier with mechanical splices.
  • Are economical. Mechanical splices require no special skills and reduce labor and material costs because less rebar is used.

Product Portfolio

Find the best code-compliant products for the job with our full portfolio of concrete reinforcement solutions:

  • Precast splicing systems that provide strength between load bearing precast concrete elements such as columns, beams, shear walls and panels.
  • Metal-filled splicing systems that produce a joint with essentially the same mechanical properties as those of an unspliced bar, suitable for in situ applications.
  • Quick wedge splicing systems that are a simple and fast alternative for joining small diameter reinforcing steel bars.
  • Shear bolt splicing systems that require no rebar end preparation and are ideal for new construction, repair or retrofit applications.
  • Form savers that are ideal for eliminating protruding dowel bars in segmental pour applications while protecting valuable forms from damage.
  • Speed sleeves for compression-only steel reinforcement applications.
  • More from the world-leader in mechanical splicing for reinforcing bars.
