Fiber Dowels introduces the first fiberglass rebar baskets, which are lighter, more durable, and easier to install than steel rebar baskets. These patented coupling rods baskets are, like the dowel baskets, easy to transport and stack, ensuring that no empty space is moved. Because the baskets can be stacked, an employee can place 50% more baskets compared to the steel variant. Additionally, no machines are needed to move the materials on the project.

The advantages in a glance

The fiberglass rebar baskets, like our previously patented product, the dowel baskets, offer numerous advantages. Here are some of the key benefits:

Corrosion

One problem with steel is corrosion. Steel reacts with water, causing rust. This rust weakens the steel and makes it less durable. Fiberglass, on the other hand, is not susceptible to any form of corrosion, which keeps it stronger and more durable.

Weight

Since fiberglass is generally up to four times lighter than steel, it allows for easier and faster installation. An employee can easily carry five baskets at once. Additionally, this demands less physical effort from the worker, reducing labor strain. This helps maintain employee satisfaction.

Environment

Producing and recycling fiberglass is more environmentally friendly than producing the steel version. For example, the steel version releases more CO2. This, coupled with the corrosion resistance of fiberglass, makes for a greener and more sustainable product.

Technische specificaties

Fiberglass is not only an environmentally friendly choice, but also a material that excels in lightness and durability, with even more advantages over steel. With a high tensile strength of 1000 MPa and a composition consisting of 70% fiber, it delivers exceptional performance. Moreover, fiberglass also does not interfere with communication lines making it particularly suitable for airfields and container terminals.

Applications and application areas of our rebar baskets

Fiberglass rebar baskets are used in the longitudinal joints of concrete pavements. Rebars prevent concrete slabs from moving apart from each other. The purpose of the rebar baskets is to keep the rebars at the correct height and distance. The profiled bars are applied adhesively, thus connecting the slabs in the concrete pavements and transferring tensile forces. The diameter and spacing are determined at the time of overall design.

There are also other products that can be used such as fiberglass dowel baskets, fiberglass rebars, fiberglass dowels and Fiber Dowels T Form.

Projects

The fiberglass rebars can be applied to many projects and have a positive impact here. Below are several leading projects where fiberglass tie rods have been applied:

Fiber Dowels delivered to airfield Paris Charles de Gaulle

At Fiber Dowels, we understand the critical importance of seamless communication, especially in high-stakes environments like airfields or container terminals. That’s why we delivered our Fiber Dowels to this project.

Fiber Dowels baskets used in Deurne, Belgium

In this project, the manual laying of a new concrete floor utilized the fiberglass dowel baskets from Fiber Dowels. During the project, it was chosen to use dowels in all of the joints, as various heavy vehicles will use them from all directions.

Why choose fiberglass rebar baskets for your project?

Our fiberglass rebar baskets and dowel baskets bring many advantages, which are comparatively better and stronger than the steel counter hangs. For example, it is more durable, longer life, corrosion resistant, lighter and faster. These advantages together allow projects to be completed faster, more durable and cheaper.
