The first fiberglass dowel baskets that possess better properties than steel dowel baskets. Fiberglass dowel baskets are lighter, easier to transport, and simpler to use compared to their steel counterparts. Fiber Dowels owns the patent design, making it that they are only produced by us and pre-assembled. The benefits of fiberglass dowel baskets are endless.

Benefits

Fiberglass dowel baskets offer numerous advantages and characteristics that make them a winning product. Here are some of the key benefits:

Corrosion

One issue with steel is corrosion, as it reacts with water and forms rust, weakening the steel and reducing its durability. In contrast, fiberglass is not susceptible to any form of corrosion, making it stronger and more durable.

Weight

Fiberglass is generally about four times lighter than steel, making it easier and quicker to install. The dowels baskets are also pre-assembled, making it so that an employee can easily carry 7 baskets into a hall. This results in less physical strain on workers, reducing labor costs and keeping employees satisfied.

Environment

The production of fiberglass is greener than its steel counterpart, as steel production emits more CO2. Coupled with fiberglass’s corrosion resistance, this leads to a greener and more sustainable product.

Technical specifications

Fiberglass is not only an environmentally friendly choice but also a material that excels in terms of lightweight and durability, offering even more advantages over steel. With an impressive tensile strength of 1000 MPa and a composition consisting of 70% fibers, it delivers exceptional performance. Moreover, fiberglass is completely impervious to radio waves and can provide tensile strengths ranging from 600 to 1600 N/mm2. As an added bonus, it has a thermal conductivity of only 0.25%.

Applications and areas of application for Fiberglass Dowel Baskets

Fiberglass dowel baskets are used to place dowels for concrete pavements. The design of the fiberglass chairs allows concrete slabs to have enough room to move within the dowel baskets. The dowels ensure proper load transfer in contraction or expansion joints, preventing issues like step formation and ensuring optimal driving comfort. The dowel thickness is determined based on the pavement’s load.

The dowel baskets are available in multiple configurations. They are available with spacings of 25 or 30 centimeters. With 5 or 6 dowels pre-assembled and for diameter 25 and 30.

In addition to dowel baskets, there are many other fiberglass products, such as fiberglass rebars, fiberglass dowels, and T-FORM.
