The Lesa Speed Basket System is a high quality welded pre-fabricated dowel support assembly for use beneath sawn joints. The system is designed to ensure that dowels are pre-set to height in a self-supporting frame and 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 Cradle/Basket System is that it takes the guess work out of dowel alignment and offers rapid replacement. Dowel Cradles/Baskets have been used throughout Australasia for many years due to simplicity, ease of use and affordability.


All Dowel Cradles/Baskets 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 Cradles/ Baskets are the preferred system by engineers and contractors around the world.


Dowels are supplied in blacks 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 specified. All cradles/baskets are fabricated with temporary transit tie which requires cutting once in place. If in doubt, contact your local representative for confirmation on the appropriate system for use.
