Connolly® Dowel Cradles – Galvanised/Black


Connolly® Dowel Cradles – Galvanized/Black

Connolly® Plate Dowel cradles supplied by InfraBuild Construction Solutions (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel Reinforcing), are used for load transfer in saw cut contraction joints. They are a welded wire assembly that ensures the horizontal and vertical alignment of dowels at the correct spacing and height.

Connolly Plate Dowel Cradles are supplied with a de-bonding sleeve to one half of the dowel to allow for contraction. Connolly Plate Dowel Cradles also allow for lateral movement.

Manufactured in 3m lengths from 6mm wire, these dowel cradles are available in a wide range of configurations to suit a variety of slab thicknesses and load requirements. They form a rigid assembly, capable of withstanding the harsh treatment they frequently encounter during construction activities. They are easy to transport, handle and install, saving both time and money for the contractor. Connolly Plate Dowel Cradles can also be custom manufactured to suit any specific configuration.
