note to estimators - splice installation
moderately increases pile casting cost, and this varies by
pile size, labor rate and casting yard methods in a
- Male and Female splice plates are
shipped palletized and are interchangeable. Threaded rebar
anchors are shipped separately.
- Screw the bars into tapped holes in
the back sides, making sure that the ends do not protrude
through the plate face. The /bent rebar is screwed into the
Female splice half with the offset to the inside of the spiral
- The outside of the Male plate and
inside of the Female plate groove edges must be
protected from concrete spills. Run duct tape around edges
before placing in forms.
- The Female half goes on the top of
the bottom segment; the Male on the bottom of the top segment.
Place the halves 1-2 ft. apart in the forms with vent hole in
the skirts facing up. If there is spiral to go inside Female
rebar offset bends and over strands, place the turns inside
first, pull strands, do initial tensioning, spread spiral
(and/or stirrups). Support the splice rebar weight from
kicking the splice faces back.
a) With sufficient quantity, it may be more efficient to have
jigs made. Please consult with us about this.
b) Otherwise, spacers can be made, or use a framing square
against the splice face and form sides and bottom, and wedges
at the splice sides. One man can check the square while
another moves the rebar and ties it. Some precasters use
strand clamps at the splice/ face without spacers.
- Remove duct tape before burning
strands off flush with splice plates so it doesn’t melt.
- Grind plate surfaces flush so that no
strand element protrudes, not even 1/32".
- Clean mating splice surfaces and
grooves of all concrete before shipping.
is important for successful splicing at the job site that
the splice surfaces and grooves are free from
concrete and strand ends are flush -- inspect!
Site assistance by PSI personnel is available for initial
casting by prior arrangement.
