ENGINEERED CONCRETE FLOOR SYSTEM


LOAD PLATE LADDER


The Dowel Ladder/Track System is a high quality welded pre-fabricated dowel support assembly. The system is designed to ensure that dowels are perfectly aligned beneath sawn joints. This system ensures that the dowels are perfectly aligned and at the correct centre spacing, thus avoiding the potential for slab lock up.

The advantage of the Dowel Ladder/Track System is that it takes the guess work out of dowel alignment and offers rapid placement. Dowel Ladders/Tracks have been used throughout Australasia for many years due to their simplicity, ease of use and affordability.

 

All the Dowel Ladders/Tracks are supplied to site fully assembled in standard three metre lengths and are ready to install. All dowels are supplied with sleeves which are designed to ensure effective dowel movement and maximize dowel efficiency. Dowel Ladders/Tracks are supported on standard reinforcing supports which can be supplied as separate components, or are readily available from your preferred supplier.

 

Dowel Ladders can be placed as the pour proceeds or laid out prior to the pour and chaired up as required. Dowel Ladders/Tracks are available with Roundowels, Dominator, Square or Load Plates all in standard diameters and length and at centre spacing's to suit the slab thickness.

 

Dowels are supplied in black steel, stainless steel or hot dip galvanized with special lengths and sizes available to order.

NOTE: When using Dowels in two directions ensure dowel sleeves with lateral movement capability are supplied. If in doubt, contact your local representative for confirmation on the appropriate system for use.
