Order made to measure dovetailed sheets

The original dovetailed sheets are rolled, self-supporting steel reinforcement plates. These plates serve as formwork and reinforcement for thin lightweight concrete floors. They are also used on wooden and steel supporting structures. Since 2019 Ripstaal is also one of the most reliable suppliers of dovetailed sheets in the Netherlands.


At Ripstaal you can buy dovetailed sheets in different sizes. The sheets are finished with concrete. Please contact us at 31(0)412 633930 or mail us:

Ripstaal has been a supplier of finishing products in the Netherlands and abroad since the 1960s. Over the years Ripstaal has developed into the market leader in the field of finishing products for the professional construction industry.


Features of dovetailed sheets

The profiled dovetailed sheets are made in our own factory. The technique of dovetailed sheets, in use since 1859, has been greatly improved by Ripstaal experts and made available for both new construction and renovation projects.

Characteristics of dovetailed sheets

  • Low own weight (from 60 kg/m2) with high permissible load
  • Low floor thickness (from 36 mm)
  • Spans (h.o.h.) up to 2500 mm
  • Simple handling
  • Fire resistance (WBDBO) up to 120 minutes
  • Sound-insulating (> 40 dB improvement possible)

It is possible to fix the dovetailed sheets on an existing floor, but we strongly recommend to remove the current/old floor boards first.


Benefits for the end user

Dovetailed sheets have a unique profile that allows wooden substructures to breathe and thus helps prevent wood rot.

  • Strong and fire resistant subfloor
  • Shower rooms and toilets
  • Tailor-made orders possible

Benefits for professionals

Dovetailed sheets are one of the most durable building solutions. This is because we only use quality steel.

  • Processes quickly, saves working time
  • Limited substructure
  • Very well suited for floor renovations
