Recostal starter Packs Profiled

Recostal starter Packs consist of pre-bent reinforcement housed in a uniquely trapezoidal profiled corrosion resistant casing. The starter pack is then cast into the front face of the wall. After the formwork is struck, the backing is removed to reveal the starter bars inside. These legs are then bent out by the contractor and lapped onto the main reinforcement of the next pour.
The casing remains embedded in the wall, providing a trapezioidal profiled rebate into which the concrete is poured.
This eliminates the need for traditional preparation at the joint.

Key Benefits
• Recostal Starter Packs meet the requirements of DIN EN 1992-1-1 for the highest surface category “key profiled“ in the case of transverse loads.
• Strong, robust galvanised sheet metal starter packs, dimensionally stable
• Cost and time effective installation, starter packs are simply nailed to the formwork
• Easy removal of the sheet metal covers due to their special design
• Trapezoidally profiled box for excellent bond
• Various possible combinations provide a solution for all common installation details

RSH Starter Packs
RSH Starter Packs consists of a trapezoidally profiled box made from galvanized steel sheet. In the case of shear force loads acting in a transverse direction to the starter pack, the surface of the joint meets the demands of Eurocode 2 for the highest category key profiled.

Type RSH can be used in wall to wall and wall to slab connections. Especially when placed horizontally, this type of continuity strip gives engineers the opportunity of calculating the shear forces. The casing is protected against corrosion.

Technical Data
• Trapezoidally profiled starter packs, joint category “key profiled“ according to DIN EN
• 1992-1-1, highest shear force bearing capacity
• Concrete reinforcement steel BSt 500 S or BSt 500 WR according to DIN 488,
• Ø = 8 mm – 14 mm (16 mm)
• Diameter of bending rolls dbr ≥ 6 Ds in the section of rebending
• 8 standard profiles, bar widths 10 cm – 22 cm, smaller or larger bar widths on request
• Standard unit length L= 1.25 m, fixed lengths up to 2.50 m on request
• Various possible combinations provide a solution for all common installation details

RSV Starter Packs
RSV starter Packs are specifically designed for vertical joints with high shear forces. It is the first starter pack which is shear key profiled on all three sides of the casing. The type RSV provides high shear force load capacities.
Type RSV can be used in wall to wall and wall to slab connections. Especially when placed vertically, this type of continuity strip gives engineers the opportunity of calculating the shear forces. The casing is protected against corrosion.

VHQ Starter Packs
VHQ Starter Packs consists of a notched, galvanized sheet steel box. It’s clever use of single bars makes it ideal for multiple applications and all construction widths.
