Expansion joints are provided in concrete structures to decouple components and avoid stress cracks. Shear force 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.
The Egcodorn® shear force dowel system offers predictability in planning and execution for high static loads.
Egcodorn® DND is the optimal solution where dynamic stresses are to be considered, e.g. in the case of navigated joints.
Egcodubel is the most economical product for structural connections.
