Deformed Bar Anchors – are low carbon-steel devices designed to increase holding power in concrete and maximize material strength in applications where substantial load supporting (shear tension) forces are present on embedments.
Used in the following situations:
- Precast columns
- Tee and beam connections
- Seismic shear walls
- Securing steel plates to concrete structures

Bar anchors consist of three main components: the anchor head, a steel tendon – divided into the bond section and free length – and the grout body.
The steel tendon is a round steel bar with coarse, hot rolled thread ribs and can therefore be cut or joined at any desired point.
- Nationally approved system with internal and external quality control
- Well suited to transport and assembly conditions as delivered in parts with couplers
- Simple tensioning, post-tensioning and releasing by means of screw anchoring
- Simple to adapt to required length on site, e.g. with varying geological conditions (can be shortened by cutting or lengthened with a coupler)
- Excellent bond between anchor rod and cement mortar thanks to threaded ribs
- Can be closely matched to the required loads thanks to wide range of cross-sections and steel grades
