Packers and Shims for Tradies
Plastic packers or shims are perfect for filling irregular gaps when building, and can be used to level out or adjust concrete formwork, timberwork, precast components, brickwork, interior fitouts and much more. They can be used to pack floor joists and ceiling battens, pack brackets and lintels and are used for shimming struts and beams.
With almost unlimited uses in the residential, commercial and industrial sectors, they are an essential item for:
- Precast and tilt-up concrete installers
- Kitchen installers
- Window installers
- Cladding & weatherboard installers
Shims or packers are made from solid polypropylene with a high compression strength. Shims are strong yet flexible can be cut and then nailed, drilled, or screwed into place.
Plastic packers look basic, but they are a tough and durable product. Jaybro’s range includes full and half packing shims as well as horseshoe packers. These are ideal for various applications such as levelling door and window frames, using when fixing precast concrete panels, and stumping.
Their high strength means that they will retail their shape and not crush or warp into a different size even after packing and fixing. Additionally, unlike wood or other types of shim, polypropylene will stand the test of time.
