Egcodorn and Egcodubel are a range of shear dowel systems that can accommodate most static and dynamic loads. Egcodorn stainless steel dowel systems are suitable for transverse force transmission for static and dynamic loads. The Egcodubel dowel system guarantees that transverse forces at expansion joints are transmitted without impeding the horizontal movement of each component.
Egcodorn is a high-performance, corrosion-proof transverse shear force dowel which transfers maximum loads whilst having a minimal component thickness. When using Egcodorn, it is not necessary to use extensive formwork for expansion joints. The unique corrosion protection system and the use of high-quality materials guarantee the highest safety and reliability.
Expansion joints allow for movement between adjacent concrete elements caused by physical changes (thermal expansion, shrinking, material creep). The primary application of the Egcodorn stainless steel dowel system is to carry loads across expansion joints in which shear forces occur.
Summary - Egcodorn:
Egcodubel for expansion joints is a system for transmission of the transverse forces in joints of plate-shaped structural elements. Dowels are mainly used for subordinate structural elements (e.g. ground bearing slabs), in which expansion joints must only allow for transverse forces.
