Chino Products Pty Ltd began operations at Brendale, Brisbane in 1997. It is a family built and owned company.
The Managing Director, a licensed Builder with 40 years experience in the Building Industry designed, developed and commenced manufacturing of the Dry Sleeve Dowel Bar used in Concrete joint applications. He saw the need for a new product to stop concrete cracking and that was quick and easy to use, so with his innovative design of the dowel sleeve developed the Dry Sleeve Dowel Bar.
Dry Sleeve Dowels can be used for Expansion/Contraction joints in a continuous concrete pour and/or stop work method. With its innovative and patented design for use in concrete applications it's not hard to see why the Chino Dry Sleeve Dowel Bar will become a leader for concrete jointing applications.
