- Steel-Filled Coupling Sleeve
- Cold-Swaged Threaded Coupler
- Cold-Swaged Coupling Sleeve
- Shear Screw Coupling Sleeve
- Coupling Sleeve with Double Wedge
- Taper-Threaded Coupler
- Dowel Bar Mechanical Splice
- Straight Threaded Coupler with Upset Rebar Ends
- Compression-Only Mechanical Splices
Our mechanical couplers and form savers are fast and easy to install, saving you labor costs and keeping projects on schedule. You will receive products on-time or ahead of schedule with our internal delivery services and trucks.
Dowel Bar Concrete Reinforcement
Whitacre Engineering offers dowel bar splicing options to reinforce your concrete structures. The steel bars are placed across construction joints to facilitate load transfer.
We supply a variety of dowel bar reinforcement systems including the DBR™ Splice System from Erico Lenton, which comes in black, epoxy-coated, stainless steel and corrosion-resistant rebar materials. The DBR™ Form Saver performs in tension and compression in excess of a Type 1 splice, and the coupler is made from rebar materials, eliminating issue-prone welded connections.
At Whitacre Engineering, we ensure that you have the highest-quality selection and service for all of your construction needs. We offer the latest technologies and product advancements to our clients, giving you cost-effective, efficient solutions.
