Background

Reinforced concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place. The design of the joint is important for the overall design of the structure to function correctly.

Ancon’s range of shear connectors offers significant advantages over conventional single dowels. These Shear Connectors are more effective at transferring load, simpler to install and ensure the necessary alignment required for movement.

The two part construction means that the sleeve component can be simply nailed to the formwork; drilling of either formwork or concrete is not required.

For a given application, the design program will calculate the size and number of connectors required, the edge distance and spacings, and details of the local reinforcement.

Range of Shear Connectors

Ancon’s range of shear connectors offers significant advantages over conventional single dowels. These Shear Connectors are more effective at transferring load, simpler to install and ensure the necessary alignment required for movement.

Ancon DSD

The DSD is the original two-part, double dowel, shear load connector. The dowel component can move longitudinally within the sleeve to accommodate movement. The connector is available in ten standard sizes and can transfer loads from around 20kN to over 450kN. The larger connectors can be used in joints up to 60mm wide.

Ancon DSDQ

The DSDQ shear load connector uses the same dowel component as the Ancon DSD, but the cylindrical sleeve is contained within a rectangular box section to allow lateral movement in addition to the longitudinal movement. Nine standard sizes can be used to transfer loads from around 30kN to over 450kN.

Ancon ESD

The ESD is a single dowel shear connector and is available in three sizes with each size available in two lengths. Ancon ESD shear connectors are used where the slab or wall is too thin for Ancon DSD, and where loads are small.

Ancon ESDQ

The ESDQ shear load connector uses the same dowel as the Ancon ESD, but the cylindrical sleeve is contained within a rectangular box section to allow lateral movement in addition to longitudinal movement.

Ancon ED

The ED is a low cost dowel connector for use in floor slabs where alignment is important but loads are small. The single dowel shear connector is available in three sizes with each size available in two lengths.

Ancon Acoustic Dowel

The Ancon Acoustic Dowel is designed to transfer shear loads and limit sound transmission across joints in concrete. The sleeve contains sound absorbing material between two stainless steel tubes.
