Description
The dowel sleeve is made from galvanised steel and
incorporates compressible foam strips on the inside of each
side of the cover that allows the dowelled concrete joint to
move laterally by up to 20 mm in each direction. The range
of sleeves are designed to accept standard 16 mm to 40 mm
square dowels as designated by the engineer. Each dowel
sleeve is fitted with a compressible foam plug which creates
space between the end of the sleeve and the end of the
dowel to accommodate for any thermal expansion of the
metal dowel.
The dowel sleeve is nailed to the edge forms. On removing
the edge form the dowel sleeve remains in the concrete and
is ready to accept the metal dowel.
Installation Instructions
Dowelled joints in concrete pavements are only effective if
the dowels are aligned level and parallel to each other
therefore care must be taken to ensure formwork is well
supported and accurately positioned.
The Flanged Dowel Box nailing plates should be nailed to
the timber edge form at the height and spacing detailed by
the Engineering drawings.
Note: it may be necessary to support the end of the Flanged
Dowel Box by using bar chairs or tie to reinforcing bars
supported by bar chairs.
After the concrete has hardened sufficiently (usually 24-36
hours), the edge forms can be removed and the appropriate
metal dowel is then inserted into the dowel sleeve.
