Dowels perform the important job of load transfer between adjacent concrete slabs. Because a concrete slab only has around 50% of its load-bearing capacity at the edges, dowels are needed to support the slab, help bear and transfer weight, and permit controlled movement of the two adjacent slabs.

PLATE DOWELS OFFER FIVE MAIN BENEFITS:
  • Joint activation and minimized cracking
  • Material optimization and savings
  • Construction efficiencies and tolerances
  • Reduced long-term maintenance costs
  • Superior joint stability
