Whether you are building bridges, slabs in high-rise buildings, or underground parking garage floors, expansion joints prevent cracks caused by shrinkage or temperature changes. However, conventional expansion joint designs, such as corbels, are labor intensive to install and take up a lot of space. Schöck Dorn shear dowel solutions are an economical and effective alternative to other expansion joint systems.read more
Using Dorn shear dowels for expansion joint applications helps simplify the design and construction of expansion joints, while making the best possible use of the available space. They can be used in all joints where lateral forces are transferred and perpendicular movement to the joint is needed – connections from ceilings to walls, ceilings to beams, stairwells to walls, and in balcony plates separated by joints. Typical applications include parking garages, stadiums, airports, highway noise barriers, hospitals, malls and other building expansions.
These shear reinforcement and heavy-duty dowels for transferring shear forces in expansion joints arrive on site ready for installation, eliminating the need for complex detailed solutions. Concrete can be poured in one step instead of three, helping to make your job quicker and easier. Schöck Dorn Shear Dowels provide straightforward, reliable and affordable solution.
