What are fiberglass dowels?

Fiberglass dowels are round, mint-colored rods that are placed at transverse joints in a concrete pavement. A glass fibre dowel ensures that the concrete can shrink and expand at different temperatures. The dowel is always placed in the middle of the thickness of the concrete. At the time the pavement is 25 cm thick, dowels or dowel seats will be placed at a height of 12.5 cm.

    The fiberglass dowels are available in different diameters and lengths.  In road construction, steel dowels are now mainly used. These dowels are being encased with a coating that prevents them from binding to the concrete. The fiberglass dowels supplied by Fiber Dowels are smooth. Because of this, no adhesion can occur with the concrete. The concrete paving can therefore expand and shrink at temperature differences without cracking. Our standard dowels can be ordered in the sizes 25/500 and 22/500 (diameter/length) 25/600 and 22/600 (diamater/length)

     

     

      Overpaying for fiberglass dowels or fiberglass rebars is history!

      Advantages of fiber glass dowels, fiber glass rebars and fiber glass dowel baskets.

      4 times lighter than steel

      Fiberglass dowels and fiberglass rebars are up to four times lighter than steel. That means less labour and satisfied personnel.

      Environment friendly

      The production of fiber glass dowels and fiber glass rebars produces less CO2 in comparison to the iron version. This has a positive effect on the environment.

      No corrosion possible

      Steel reacts with water, causing it to rust. On the other hand, fiber glass is not susceptible to corrosion, which results in a longer service life.

      Higher breakingpoint

      We have tested the fiber glass dowel's breakingpoint and the results came out higher than the traditional steel dowel.

      High tensile strength

      The tensile strength of the glass fibredowel is higher compared to iron:
      glass fibre dowel: 600 - 1600 n/mm2 compared to
      steel dowel: 200-550 n/mm2

      Resistant to chemicals

      Chloride and phosphates do not affect the fiber glass rebars or dowels.

      No loss of strength

      The fiberglass dowel or fiberglass rebars does not lose strength at low temperatures. The iron dowel or coupling rod at high temperatures do differ.

      Radio Transparent

      The material does not conduct radio waves, making the fiberglass dowels easier to use in sensitive environments.

      Higher flexural strength

      The fiber glass dowels have a flexural strength than steel dowels.

      Dowel racks

      Diameter tolerance

      A fiber glass dowel is always +/- 0.3 mm accurate in terms of curvature compared to steel which is close to +/- 0.5 mm.

      Thermal conductivity

      The thermal conductivity of the composite is 100 times lower than steel. 

      Diagmagnetic

      The material is diamagnetic and therefore has a repulsive force.
