Square Dowel Cradles are well suited for efficiently limiting deflection in contraction joints in concrete slabs and pavements. The 3 m long pre-fabricated cradles ensure the dowels are set at the exact height for the specified slab thickness and at precise spacing to minimize installation time. Square Dowel Cradles can be easily cut to required lengths or butted together to form large runs and Intersections. The dowel sleeve provides a de-bonded surface against the concrete while also providing for lateral movement of the dowel. Dowels come with have either Dowelmaster™ or Metal Dowel Covers depending upon dowel size and length.

Square Dowel Cradles are designed to provide a total joint system solution by incorporating 2 systems in the one solution, being the square dowels and sleeves as the load transfer system and the wire cage that acts as a bar chair and spacer to make sure dowels are maintained at the correct and height and spacing during the pouring of the slab. Square Dowel Cradles are made custom to customer specification only.

    1. Dowels, covers and chairs incorporated in one system.
    2. The wire cradle construction ensures the accurate placement and alignment of the dowels at the correct centres and height within the slab.
    3. Supplied in standard 3 m lengths, cradles with larger dowel sizes may be shorter in length.
    4. Dowels made from AS/NZS 3679.1, Grade 300 steel.
    5. Dowel sleeves allow for both lateral movement and expansion.
