dowel sleeve inserts

[Category : - Construction Processes & Equipment]
[Viewed 74 times]

A dowel supporting device that includes a substantially hollow tube having a top end and a bottom end. An opening may be formed at the top end and a base may be formed at the bottom end. The base of the dowel supporting device may be fastened to a concrete deck. Concrete may be poured into the concrete deck. When dowels are ready to be used, the dowels may be inserted and secured to the dowel supporting device. A cap or thin sealed covering may be placed at the top end of the hollow tube to prevent infiltration of concrete into the tube during a concrete pour. The cap or thin sealed covering may include a raised portion of material which aids in locating the hollow tube after a concrete slab cures around it. A dowel tube extender may be provided which extends a hollow tube to accommodate different concrete slab thicknesses.
