Speed Plate

A Patented Plate Dowel System
SPEED PLATE™ is the economically smart choice for flat plate dowel applications in construction joints. SPEED PLATE™ provides load transfer across construction joints and accommodates lateral and axial movement at inception due to concrete shrinkage and differential slab movement. The patented design reduces the number of dowels typically required with slip dowel systems and offers many benefits to owners and installers.

Benefits Include:

  • A doweling method in accordance with ACI 302.1R-04 Guide for Concrete Floor and Slab Construction
  • One-Piece Design with alignment marks and pre-installed nails makes installation quick and easy
  • Integral, patented sleeve insert eliminates lateral restraint between concrete sections
  • Engineered to provide optimal use of steel
  • Larger steel plates (compared to competing plate dowels) provide greater overall surface area to reduce bearing stresses on concrete
  • Non-Tapered plate profile ensures consistent bearing stresses at joint face and full depth of dowel
