GFRP Dowel Bars


BlackBar™  GFRP Dowel Bars are used as a load transfer device between joints in concrete slabs. They provide a mechanical connection between slabs but allow for horizontal contraction and expansion of the slab itself. This results in lower deflections at the joints and reduced slab stresses. Joint failure is often the result of corrosion of the steel dowel bar.

Black Bar Glass Fibre Dowels will not rust or corrode, meet shear capacity requirements and may reduce fatigue stresses in the surrounding concrete, due to the lower stiffness of the GFRP Dowels. These bars are also electromagnetically transparent and are frequently used in high-speed toll collection areas near inductance sensors.

Beyond Materials Group PTY LTD is a growing Australian manufacturer of  Glass Fibre dowel bars and can meet your specification and quality requirements. From our factory in Loganholme, Queensland we manufacture and  ship our GFRP products Australia wide.
