For the connection of H-elements in Pipe-racks has the following features:

Vertical height adjustment: The system of the continuity connection 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.

Universality: the sleeve of the continuity connection can be used with rebars of different diameters: from ø 12 to ø 32.

Double adherence: the shape of the sleeve of the continuity connection is designed to guarantee the internal and external adherence of the system.

Anchorage in continuity connection : 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.

Fixing set: The sleeves continuity connection 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. 

Structural calculation of the continuity connection : It is not necessary given the guaranteed emulation of traditional in-situ solutions as continuity connection  . The system guarantees perfect continuity connection of the reinforcements between the two reinforced concrete structures . The connection provides guaranteed structural continuity and therefore does not require any additional calculation.
