Concrefy is specialised in testing reinforcement couplers for mechanical splices of bars according to various international standards and for various types of projects. For mechanical splices for reinforcement steel and headed bars, many international standards are available, setting different requirements and prescribing very specific tests.
Our laboratory belongs to a selection of laboratories worldwide that are able to carry out these tests. We carry out these tests for manufacturers of these coupling systems, but also for contractors and other users of these products. Based on static, dynamic and cyclic loading tests, we assess whether the products meet all the requirements for use in bridges, viaducts, power stations, dams, high-rise buildings or stadiums.
