The innovation of the new B.S. CONTINUITY CONNECTION SYSTEM with INJECTION SLEEVE for the connection of H-elements in Pipe-racks has the following features:
Vertical height adjustment
The system allows adjustment of the set height and of the verticality of the structure in order to be able to absorb any errors in the casting of the foundations with specific plumbing systems: brackets, threaded rods, RS25.
High coupling tolerance
Thanks to the large diameter of the sleeve.
The sleeve can be used with rebars of different diameters: from ø 12 to ø 32.
The shape of the sleeve is designed to guarantee the internal and external adherence of the system.
Anchorage in continuity
Guaranteed by the reinforcement of the foundation itself which continues towards the column (perfect emulation of the structures in place).
Excellent fire resistance
B.S. Italia’s anti-seismic Continuity Connections are adequately covered and therefore protected by the concrete of the artefact.
The sleeves are secured by means of a special fixing/centering system that can be connected to the metal templates. The metal templates are therefore fundamental for the correct positioning of the inserts. B.S. Italia S.p.a. can offer, subject to commercial agreement, specific consultancy for the design/manufacture of the templates and technical assistance at the place of manufacture of the products and/or on site.
It is not necessary given the guaranteed emulation of traditional in-situ solutions. The system guarantees perfect continuity of the reinforcements between the two reinforced concrete structures. The connection provides guaranteed structural continuity and therefore does not require any additional calculation.
