The nVent LENTON Ultimate Splicing Systems and Mechanical Anchors are designed to maximize performance and shop efficiency as well as minimize installation difficulty in the field. Ultimate products are attached to the reinforcing steel using friction forging technology (commonly called friction welding). Each friction welder is manufactured with state-of-the-art control systems and quality monitoring to ensure every connection is produced as intended. The product design and optimized friction welding parameters maximize the performance of the rebar connections with multiple types and grades of rebar. The Ultimate system is robust, allowing for the inherent variability of rebar while maintaining the highest level of performance.
