PD³ Dowel® Cradles are tapered plate dowels assembled into cradles of 3 m nominal length offering a highly efficient dowel system well suited for contraction joints. Available in 6 or 10 mm thick dowels spaced at 450 or 600 mm centres, and for slab thicknesses ranging from 125 to 300 mm in galvanized or black.

Note: PD³ Dowel® Cradles have the same load transfer capacities and deflection characteristics as rectangular Plate Dowel Cradles™.
