HSD-LD Lockable Dowels image

HSD-LD Lockable Dowels

HALFEN HSD-LD Lockable Dowels have been designed for use in temporary movement joints, most commonly found in post-tension concrete slabs. These dowels allow for initial shrinkage to take place and then are locked in position with a mechanical plate and a controlled amount of epoxy resin. When locked, the dowels continue to transfer shear, but prevent further movement from taking place.

The use of HALFEN HSD-LD Lockable Dowels can save a significant amount of construction time, labor, and material over other building methods. Concrete shrinkage has traditionally been accommodated by leaving gaps in slabs called "pour-strips" or 'closure-strips.' These strips are filled once movement has ceased; however, until they are filled, the slabs must be temporary supported restricting site access and delaying construction progress.

{{}} {{this.hide}} Powerclick

Powerclick image


The patented HALFEN Powerclick System consists of four basic components which can be used to create nearly all pipe support configurations.
  • one core profile for all constructions
  • one corner connector in two designs for cantilevers and trapezes
  • one base plate in 3 sizes for connection to steel and concrete
  • one universal clamp for all beam flanges

Designed for high beam and column loads, Powerclick replaces much heavier site or shop fabricated structural steel pipe support frames with equivalent torsional rigidity. Extremely versatile, the System's small number of components can be combined to create a huge variation of support applications.

Simply cutting the POWERCLICK profile to the required length and bolting it to the other 3 key components does away with custom welded fabrications; saves a significant amount of design and installation time; and does not require hot-work permits or plant shutdown.
