Joints

QuicDiamond – Flat Plate Dowel System.

QuicDiamond Dowel

  • Provides excellent joint stability compared to other systems
  • Provides reliable and maintenance-free concrete flatwork joints
  • The plate shape is engineered for optimal material performance
  • Sawn steel for smooth square plate edges allows unrestrained horizontal and lateral movement of the concrete
  • Consistently specified manufacturing tolerance
  • Positive load transfer and continuity of surface profile

QuicDiamond Sleeve

  • Molded from high-density ABS plastic
  • Internal collapsible fins and spacers ensure load plate is installed in the correct position to preserve integrity of the sleeve.
  • Wide sleeve for increased lateral movement
  • Shape of plate allows the most lateral and horizontal movement with the maximum strength at the center of the joint.
  • Ribbed sleeve increases the rigidity of the sleeve
  • Internal supports prevent the sleeve compressing during installation, allowing easy and accurate insertion of the steel plate.

Spec Sheet

The QuicDiamond System includes a flat plate dowel and sleeve
Three available sizes:
¼”– typically used in 5” – 6” slab depths

3/8”– typically used in 7” – 8” slab depths

3/4”– typically used in 9” – 12″ slab depths

Installation

  • Superior minimal joint edge spalling and random crack reduction
  • Fast and precise aligned installation of load transfer at construction joints
  • Eliminates drilling forms and greasing dowels
  • Avoids misaligned dowels causing slab lockup resulting in cracking
  • Preset nails for quick and easy installation
  • Eliminates removing /reinstalling dowels
  • Allows for easy stripping of forms
  • Used for formed joint construction in slabs on grade and concrete pavement exposed to pedestrian traffic
