Definitions for "Division plate"
A concrete forming accessory used to create a break in a concrete sidewalk or curb and gutter. This engineered break minimizes the chances of the poured concrete cracking due to the surrounding ground shifting as a result of variety of factors including freezing, thawing, or heat expansion.
Full plates are used as bulkheads in the curb and gutter system and also are used to hold expansion material during concrete placement.
Division plates punched for dowel are full division plates with slots punched on the bottom to accommodate the use of dowels or rebar. The punched slots hold the dowels or rebar in place during placement and prevents the material from floating in the placement. See dowel and rebar.
