No Slip Alignment with a Minimum of Compressive Distortion
Before the panel is finally aligned, Meadow Burke’s Super Shims provide quick adjustment for slightly uneven footings and panels. With a compressive strength of 8,000 psi (55 MPa), these tough polyvinyl chloride shims resist the weightof even the largest panels. Unlike weak Masonite shims, workers won’t have to guess what the final compressed thickness will be. The shims are also unaffected by alkali, ground chemicals, microorganisms, rot or oxidation from moisture. Since they are extruded from high impact plastic material, rusting won’t occur. Super Shims are bulk packaged in banded sets of six 4” x 6” (102 mm x (152 mm) shims with the following thicknesses: one yellow 1 /16” (1.6 mm), two black 1/8” (3.2 mm), and three gray 1/4” (6.4 mm). Each case contains 30 sets of six shims. Bulk packages of either 1/8” or 1/16” (3.2 mm or (1.6 mm) shims are available. Packages of 1/4” shims contain 100 shims per case.
