Tapered plate dowel baskets for saw-cut contraction joints.
Achieve superior load transfer while optimizing the amount of steel in your next concrete flatwork project using the PD3 Basket® assembly in a
Strategic Reinforcement Design. Your concrete flatwork will withstand
repetitious, concentrated loads with the superior joint stability and positive load transfer provided by the PD3 Basket® assembly.
The proven tapered-plate geometry minimizes joint spalling, eliminates restraint, reduces bearing stresses and provides generous construction tolerances to
allow for misalignment. As a result, you deliver more serviceable saw-cut contraction joints and joint stability measurements of .01 inches (.25mm). Long-term
costs are reduced with a continuity of surface profile that eliminates tripping hazards and improves joint filler or sealer performance.
Recommended for saw-cut contraction joints in:
- Concrete slabs on grade
- Concrete pavement
- Concrete flatwork exposed to pedestrian traffic
The PD3 Basket® assembly, used with the Diamond Dowel® System
in a Strategic Reinforcement Design, provides superior load transfer,
optimizes steel and delivers highly serviceable slabs and pavements.
