MBC Headed Anchors are designed to reduce congestion and anchor bar lengths but achieve full tensile capacity in on-site exposed reinforcing.
MBC Headed Anchors provide effective dead-end embedment and replace the necessity for hook end bars in areas of high congestion (eg. pile caps). MBC Headed Anchor utilises a bearing plate that is welded to one half of an MBC coupler to generate full tensile load in the bar.
MBC Headed Anchors just like our MBC Couplers are designed to be attached to pre-existing reinforcing bars. No special treatment of the institute bar end is required due to the unique design of our MBC coupler and the Headed Anchor is simply slipped on over the end of the bar. The bearing plate is designed with a hole in it to allow the Headed Anchor to be position anywhere on the existing bar. Once the Headed Anchor is located at the correct position then the protruding length of bar can be removed flush to the bearing plate if desired.
MBC Headed Anchors are designed to comply with AS3600 – Clause 13.1 .4 which allows the effective development length of any size bar to be reduced to 6 times the bar diameter.
