Vers-A-Shims®are molded from an engineered copolymer material which combines high compression strength and superior load bearing surface contact characteristics. They assure accurate placement of precast and prestressed concrete walls, floors, etc. Vers-A-Shims offer true shim thicknesses with a greater load bearing contact area. Cored-out, hollowed-out shims with less material are cheaper, more apt to fail and lose compression under load. Shims with holes, fancy bumps, interlocks and striations don’t give true surface contact. They can reduce the load bearing contact area up to 70%.
Vers-A-Shim® Bearing Strips are used for placing and leveling precast panels, tilt slabs and other architectural or structural components. Our bearing strips are designed to be placed between precast concrete floor slabs and a supporting wall or beam. The smooth surface of our bearing strips allow movement of precast floor slabs and helps them easily slide into their final position.
Strips are easily applied and lay flat.
Smooth surface to allow a precast plank to slide easily.
