They allow for movement in both lateral directions whilst still providing maximum shear load transfer across the joint. Advantages „ Wide dowel plate at point of maximum load reduces stress on concrete „ Minimises differential deflection between slabs „ Allows two directional movement in the horizontal plane „ One-piece colour coded sleeves for both 6 mm and 10 mm dowels „ Ideal for perimeter-of-pour dowel applications, i.e. at construction joints „ No need to drill forms to support dowels during concrete pour „ Nailing flange provides secure attachment to form boards „ Flange on sleeve ensures dowel is perpendicular to form board and is stable „ Sleeves moulded from durable, non-compressible material „ Sleeves fitted with double-headed nails - second head on nail acts as an anchor to help retain the sleeve in the concrete when stripping the form boards „ Reduced likelihood of sleeve knock-off when placing steel reinforcement mesh „ Simplifies form removal „ Dowel plates available in black and galvanised „ Stainless steel dowel plates are also available „ Ergonomically designed, user-friendly packaging, complete kit and installation instructions Description Diamond Dowels consist of 2 parts; the sleeve which is moulded from PVC and the dowel plate which is made from mild steel or stainless steel. The configuration of the installed Diamond Dowel allows adjacent concrete pavement slabs to move in both directions in the horizontal plane whilst minimising any shear displacement across joints. Each sleeve is fitted with an internal spacer to prevent collapse caused by pressure of concrete, but easily displaced into the apex of the sleeve when inserting the Diamond plate. July 2008
