Shear Load Connectors

The Ancon E-HLD allows the connection of new slabs to diaphragm walls or secant pile walls in basement construction. The dowel component is resin-fixed in the wall.

Ancon E-HLD

The Ancon Staisil 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.

The Ancon DSD is the original two-part, double dowel, shear load connector. The two dowels are Duplex stainless steel bar. The dowel component can move longitudinally within the sleeve to accommodate movement. The connector is available in ten standard sizes and has design capacities from around 20kN to over 950kN. The larger connectors can be used in joints up to 60mm wide. Larger joints can be accommodated using special dowels.

DSD Shear Load Connector

The Ancon 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. There are nine standard sizes which have design capacities from around 30kN to over 950kN. A range of stainless steel single dowel shear connectors is also available.

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 four sizes with each size available in two lengths.

ED Connector

The ESD is a single dowel shear connector and is available in four 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.

ESD Shear Connector

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.

ESDQ Shear Load Connector

The ESDQ-L Lockable Dowel allows initial movement to take place and then, after a predetermined time period (generally 60-120 days), is locked with a two-part epoxy resin poured into the L-shaped grout box.

ESDQ-L20 Lockable Dowel

The dowel component is manufactured from 30mm diameter Duplex stainless steel, but is shorter than the ESDQ-L20 dowel. One end of the dowel is designed to fix into the stainless steel Ancon SKS24 Threaded Anchor cast into the face of the concrete, and the other end features a series of grooves to accept the Locking Plate. The sleeve component is the same as used in the ESDQ-L20.

ESDQ-L20W Lockable Dowel

The Ancon HLD is a two-part, high load, shear connector. The dowel component moves longitudinally within the sleeve to accommodate movement. The connector is available in seven sizes with design capacities from 24kN to over 500kN.

HLD Shear Connector

The Ancon HLDQ, high load shear connector uses the same dowel component as the Ancon HLD, but the cylindrical sleeve is contained within a rectangular box section. This sleeve allows lateral movement or rotation in addition to longitudinal movement. The connector is available in seven sizes with design capacities from 24kN to over 500kN.

HLDQ High Load Shear Connector

The HLDQ-L30 is a high load Lockable Dowel with a design capacity of up to 136kN.
