    The patented PD3 design features a tapered and sleeveless plate dowel that provides the world’s best performance in limiting joint deflection to provide superior joint stability.

    The PD3 design features a tapered and sleeveless plate dowel that provides the world’s best performance in limiting joint deflection to provide superior joint stability. The PD3 dowel provides the highest deflection control tolerance in-line with ACI Standards recommendations to limit joint spalling, facilitate load transfer and provide the lowest risk of restraint to ensure the best serviceability outcome for the slab design. For simple construction, the PD3 dowels are positioned at preset heights and spacing in the cradles that are easy to carry and place.

    Features:
    • Plate dowels alternate to maximise percent of steel at the joint, and provide generous installation tolerances.
    • De-bonding material allows for close steel-to- concrete contact and allows shrinkage without restraint, eliminates need for a plastic sleeve.
    • Wire cradle ensures dowels are at the correct heights and centre spacing.
    • PD3 cradles are 2250 mm long with 5 dowels spaced 500 mm apart. Dowel plates are available in 6 mm or 10 mm thicknes
