The O-Dowel Edge
An O-Dowel basket weighs about half that of a conventional solid dowel bar basket, delivering cost savings across the construction process. The O-Dowel promotes ease of installation, reduces the threat of injuries, helps reduce insurance costs and allows for more units to be shipped per truckload. Plus, it’s a 100% recyclable solution.
The O-Dowel performs to the same structural standards as solid steel dowels yet provides superior resistance to corrosion, with galvanized coating on the inside and outside of the O-Dowel making it more corrosion-resistant than a solid, epoxy-coated dowel bar. End caps offer further safeguards.
A New Standard
High-strength structural steel tubing creates a lightweight alternative to solid-steel bars, enhancing the economics across the construction spectrum.
A heavy wall thickness to outside diameter ratio provides the O-Dowel with performance characteristics comparable to those of a solid steel bar.
Sustainable & Green
The O-Dowel does not require any special handling costs and is 100% recyclable. Fewer truckloads are required to ship the lightweight O-Dowel, resulting in a reduced carbon footprint.
With state DOT-specific conventional epoxy coating on the exterior and a galvanized surface on both its interior and exterior, every O-Dowel has an extra layer of corrosion resistance.
