Reid™ manufacture a range of ReidBar™ components such as Grout Sleeves, Threaded Inserts, Couplers, Foot plates and Flange Nuts, that screw onto Grade 500E ReidBar™ threaded reinforcing to provide structural connections.The fittings come in either black or galvanised finishes that are designed to develop the upper bound breaking strength of the ReidBar™.
ReidBar™ Grout Sleeves
ReidBar™ Grout Sleeves offer a method of providing full-strength structural connections between abutting precast elements. ReidBar™ Grout Sleeves also offer the following benefits:
-Simple and easy to use, with reusable setting hardware that encourages both quick and accurate placing in boxing and precast forms.
-Requires considerably shorter embedment depths than conventional systems, resulting in shorter protruding starter bars, and easier as well as safer on-site installation.
-Easier transport due to the shorter protruding development bars in comparison to conventional systems.

Other ReidBar™ Grout Sleeves Components and Applications
In addition to concrete construction, ReidBar™ is an effective method for soil nailing, rock anchoring and formwork applications. Employed with ReidBar™ Nuts, Spherical Washers, and Base Plates, ReidBar™’s high ductility and flat rate of strain hardening assures safe anchoring under tensile/shear overload situations caused by rock/soil movement. In a similar manner, ReidBar™ is a proven performer in bracing formwork systems, with its continuous robust thread providing excellent flexibility in changing the size and configuration of formwork systems.
