Ancon® Shear Load Connectors

Overview

Ancon® Shear Load Connectors

Ancon® ESD and DSD Shear Load Connectors are used in expansion and contraction joints of reinforced concrete structures to transfer vertical shear loads while allowing the required expansion and contraction.

Each connector is a two-part assembly comprising a stainless steel sleeve and a stainless steel dowel component. The use Ancon Shear Load Connectors speeds up the installation process at concrete joints as drilling of formwork and concrete is eliminated. The sleeve is simply nailed to the formwork ensuring subsequent alignment of the dowel, essential for unhindered movement.

Ancon DSD Shear Load Connectors are double dowels that come in a wide range of load classes to suit different conditions. Ancon DSDQ Shear Load Connectors us the same dowel component as the DSD, but the cylindrical sleeve is contained within a rectangular box section to allow lateral movement in addition to the longitudinal movement.

The Ancon ESD Shear Load Connector is used where the loads are small, but where alignment is critical.

Typical Uses

  • Load transfer in structural movement joints
  • Slab-to-slab connections
  • Slab-to-wall connections
  • Floor-to-wall connections

Features

  • Effective in transferring loads and allowing movement
  • Nail plate on the sleeve ensures subsequent alignment of the dowel component
  • Corrosion protection through use of stainless steel
  • Elimination of traditional dowels
  • Manufactured from stainless steel to ensure a high degree of corrosion resistance
