Fortec ®

Coupler solution for the European market

Fortec® is the equivalent of the Dextra Bartec solution for European markets.

Fortec® is a full performance (tension / compression / cyclic / fatigue) rebar splicing system designed for the connection of concrete reinforcing bars from Ø12 to 40mm.

Fortec® system is designed to withstand an ultimate tensile performanceup to 800 MPa, thus resulting in Bar Break performance on most of the rebar available on the market.


Product features

  • A standard Fortec connection is made of parallel-thread rebar coupler and two bars which end have previously been enlarged before being threaded: thus the cross section of the bar isn’t reduced.
  • Solution supported by 3 high-productivity machines which prepare each bar in sequence: clean square cut>enlarging of the bar end by cold forging > threading.
  • Threadon the rebar can be extended from a half-coupler to a full-coupler length, allowing to use the very same standard coupler for positional applications (no need to rotate bars to perform the connection).

  • Simplify your inventory: A single standard coupler for most applications.
  • No reduction of cross-section area of the bar, making your coupler connection a strong point of your structure.
  • Working in tension/compression thanks to its parallel-thread technology.
  • Joints verified by visual inspection. No torque wrenching at a specific value required.
