QuicPlate – Flat Plate Dowel System

Flat Plate Dowel System

QuicPlate Dowel

  • Increased capacity at wider joints openings provided by the same thickness and  width of the plate throughout the length of the plate.
  • Round dowels have been conventional load transfer device, but with this flat plate device ability to have a reduced bearing stress when compared. Round Dowels will become a thing of the past.
  • Engineered for optimal performance

QuicPlate Sleeve

  • Durable ABS
  • Wider Sleeve for increased lateral movement to prohibit lateral restraint
  • Ribs on the sleeve increase the rigidity of the sleeve
  • Internal Supports prevent the sleeve compressing during installation allowing easy and accurate insertion of the steel plate.

Spec Sheet

Installation

  • Eliminates drilling forms and greasing dowels
  • Don’t have to worry about misaligned dowels resulting in slab lockup which can cause cracking
  • Preset nails for quick and easy installation
  • Improved job site access with shorter dowels and bright colored sleeves
  • Less Hazards = Less On-Site Accidents = Faster Installation Time = Less Labor Cost
Based on spacing recommendations in conformance with ACI 360R-10
