Pauls barrels and wedges are known as one of the best in quality and the most reliable grips for PC wire and PC strand both in pre-tension and post-tension. There are many types and sizes to choose for the most suitable for your pre-cast concrete production plant.
The Anchor wedges and barrels
The anchor wedges are manufactured from case hardened steel especially produced for Paul.
Accurate, automated production plus stringent testing guarantee the highest quality.
There are three different types of anchor grips:
Type A: Open grip, the simplest and cheapest design
Type F: Enclosed grip, with screwed or bayonet cap
Type K: Coupler, with which two strands are joined thus enabling remaining strand/wire pieces to be used up
Each individual wedge segment is examined for exact tooth shape bycomputer cameras.
Anchor barrels are manufactured from hightensile crack-tested basic material in a special process, and are only stamped and released for dispatch after final ultrasonic testing.
In this way, we ensure the highest industrial safety and long service life of the anchor components.
