CONSTRUCTION: SAFE AND STABLE SHIM STACK

THE PROBLEM
There’s often a requirement on site to build up stacks of shims to make up height shortfalls, such as when levelling stairs or terrace units. Traditional shims often slide off each other when a shim stack is made and are vertically unstable. The operative is often required to place his fingers under the heavy unit being installed to remove/replace/restack the shim stack, which often leads to finger entrapment and crushing. Traditional shims are made from unknown recycled material which often shatter when drilled or put under excessive pressure.

THE SOLUTION
Our patented Mini Stacker Packers have a smaller width than the Stacker Packers, only 35mm, and both sizes are available in depths of 2mm, 3mm, 5mm and 10mm with inbuilt dowels to allow the shims to interlock both horizontally and vertically to form a safe and stable shim structure. Stability is ensured by the dowels on the upper surface fitting accurately into the recesses on the underside of the Stacker Packer above similar to Lego. Once pressure is applied to the upper exposed connecting dowels on the topmost Stacker Packer they are designed to give way and collapse into the gap below, providing a top level surface with no high spots or protrusions.
