H-BAU HED Shear Dowels For Movement Joint Connections

H-BAU HED type shear dowels are used to transfer vertical shear loads across expansion joints in concrete structures while maintaining the required horizontal differential movement at the joint. The shear dowels are available in grade S 355 galvanized steel or in stainless steel material 1.4571 / 1.4362 (corrosion-protection class 3) and suitable for joint widths of up to 40mm. Two versions are available to enable a choice between horizontal movement in either one or two planes. All types are available with a special fire protection sleeve to enable up to 90 minutes of fire protection.

Typical Applications:

Expansion joints in concrete floors and walls.
