Dawson Sheet Pile Capping System
The Dawson capping system provides a fast economical method of supporting shuttering for capping beams on permanent sheet piling works such as river banks, sea walls, piers and jetties. It can be used on both U- and Z-piles.
The system is especially advantageous for shuttering under water - as an example in connection with pouring corrosion protections in harbours.
The system consists of:
The Dawson capping system is the only purpose-made pile capping system available. It is faster, more cost effective than any other on-site "lash ups". Redeb and multi-soffit panels are easily assembled and re-used by unskilled workers. It renders obsolete the use of both individual plywood panels, cut to match pile pans and the welding of support brackets to piles which ultimately have to be burned off and the piles made good.
Fifty brackets complete with shuttering can be secured in one day. That represents approximately 50 m of pile capping. On completion of pile capping the Redebs are quickly removed from under the concrete, ready for further use.
Guardrails are a part of the panels. In case the brackets are used for supporting other types of plates or panels than the Soffit Panels, special Vertical Back Supports and Guardrail Sockets are needed.
