Fiberglass baskets used in Zellik, Belgium
For a project in Zellik, Belgium, fibreglass dowel baskets were supplied by Fiber Dowels.
With many positive reactions from employees who have placed them. The dowel baskets are faster to place and a lot more stable. Also, the dowels can no longer run out of the racks during pouring. The problem with the steel dowel baskets is that the dowels are loose in the rack so they are easily knocked out.
The great advantage of these dowel baskets is that the dowels are always 100% horizontal. This distributes the loads of the traffic well and allows the dowels to do their work.
As the price of steel goes up, the products are not only lighter and more environmentally friendly but also CHEAPER!
