The Pipe Dowel Product Overview
The Pipe Dowel™ is Quality Equipment that is Construction-Tested
Our pipe dowels are ICBO approved and this uniquely designed pipe dowel is superior in preventing bent rebar. We developed this product because we were tired of messy grease that is required for the smooth dowel systems. We also recognized the inefficiency and wasted time spent double cutting rebar, and the hassle of repositioning out of position smooth dowels. The GHC pipe dowel delivers an effective pipe dowel solution that will save you time and will reduce your costs.
The Pipe Dowel™ is made in three sizes to accommodate #3 rebar (3/8” model), #4 rebar (1/2” model) and #5 rebar (5/8″ pipe dowel) so regardless of the project requirements we have the right dowel for your needs.
This article provides a detailed explanation of the Pipe Dowel and the associated patent.
Simple to Place
All that is needed is a cut-off saw to place The Pipe Dowel™. Simply cut the rebar mat, pull one side up, slip The Pipe Dowel™ over, return the mat to the correct position and slide the dowel over the adjacent side. That’s all there is to it, your dowel is in place!
The Pipe Dowel™ is made of ASTM A-53 ERW pipe, a polyethylene plastic sleeve surrounding the steel pipe to keep concrete from adhering and vinyl end caps. The caps will keep the dowel in place while placing concrete. The polyethylene is tough enough to withstand the work traffic from labor to trucks, so no worries about the underside of the dowel maintaining adequate protection from concrete.
