Expansion joints are provided in concrete structures to decouple components and avoid stress cracks. Shear force dowels or shear dowels are used for the transmission of shear forces which occur in such joints.
There are three basic types, which are designed for different applications. For high static loads, the Egcodorn® shear force dowel system offers security in planning and execution.
Egcodorn® DND is the optimal solution if the dynamic loads predominate, as with joints in road surfaces.
Egcodubel is the most economical product for structural connections.
