    Grout Sleeves offer a splicing solution for reinforcing bars, and achieve a full-strength structural connection in critical hinge zones.  The internal surfaces are ribbed to ensure full bar break after sleeve has been filled with high performance cementitious grout (65MPa, 28-day compressive strength).
