Fiberglass dowels applied in Ham

For a project in Ham, Belgium 1335 fiber glass dowels and 150 fiber glass tie-bars were delivered. For the dumping of this floor the most sustainable and CO2 friendly solution was chosen. The commonly used size 25/600 has been applied here.

The placement of the dowel chairs went a lot faster than expected. Because they can be lifted by a single employee using fibreglass dowels without kinking, as is sometimes the case with chairs with steel dowels.

In addition to the use of fibreglass dowels, fibreglass connecting rods have also been chosen here. These are drilled into the glue-shaped construction on the side of the concrete floor.
