Dear Subscriber,
Welcome to the latest Ancon newsletter. This issue features a case study which demonstrates the key benefits of using the new Lockable Dowel.

The Use of Lockable Dowels at Temporary Movement Joints

In Australia, over 5,000 Lockable Dowels have been installed in the post-tensioned concrete frame of the new Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne. 

Use of these dowels at temporary movement joints has replaced the need for 1 metre wide ‘pour strips’ to be left in the concrete slabs, and for the slabs to be propped. This improves site access and allows overhead services such as fire-suppression systems and wastewater pipes to be installed without delay, accelerating the rate of construction.
