The Taper Dowel is a load transfer system for horizontal movement in concrete floors.
The set includes a plastic void sleeve and dowel plate. The sleeve is nailed to the edge form before concrete placement. After the forms are removed, a dowel plate is inserted in each sleeve in preparation for the adjoining slab.
The Taper Dowel is recommended for joints up to 0.20” wide and is suitable for all types of grade-level concrete floors, slabs or pavements. A properly installed Taper Dowel minimizes joint spalling, eliminates tripping hazards and improves joint filler appearance.
The Taper Dowel conforms to the ACI 302.1R Guide for Concrete Floor and Slab Construction and ACI 360 Design of Slabs-on-Ground.
