Transverse force dowels (dubel) enable movement in both directions of the disk plane. The opposite disk edges are positively joined. The use of transverse force dowels (dubel) is restricted to ancillary components and secondary connections. The transmittable loads are lower than for transverse force dowels (dorn).
The transverse force dowels (dubel) can be integrated into the construction joint elements at the factory, thus minimising the assembly time and demands on the workforce at the construction site.
