1mm, 2mm and 3mm plastic shims for paving

Levelling shims are used to alter the height of the paving pad marginally, or to change the angle that the slab is resting on the pad.

1mm, 2mm and 3mm levelling shims are manufactured in plastic and can be used with 7mm rubber pads for paving & decking, rubber support pads for paving slabs and plastic fixed height support pads.

They are loose fitted and held in place by the positioning lugs.

They will alter the level by very small amounts in order to get correct paving, where the thickness of the actual paving slab alters slightly from one flag to another; because of irregularities in the deck surface beneath; or where an unexpected door threshold occurs, for example. These minor changes can be addressed with the use of levelling shims.

Levelling shims have been designed to fit on top of all fixed height support pads and will make up those small differences in the level. To avoid one of the slabs rocking, applicators can simply hang a levelling shim onto the support pad to make up the difference.

All shims can be snapped apart into quarters of half shape, where only one corner needs extra support. This is often required where just one of the flags becomes unsteady and needs bringing up to the level of the others.

For use with 9mm rubber pads:

3mm shim broken into half

They can be used as a whole unit where the height needs to be increased at a particular area, but can also be broken into halves and quarters if just one side of the pad needs lifting (in circumstances where the two abutting slabs might be different thicknesses, for example). The shims will overhang the 9mm rubber pad slightly, but this is no issue

For use with 14mm & 17mm plastic pads:

Multiple shims can be stacked onto a support pad, but care should be taken that the lug does not become engulfed as this will affect the paving guide and compromise straightness. There needs to be enough of the lug showing for the slab to butt up to.

For use with ASP pedestals:

If one of the four slabs mounted onto the ASP headpiece is a slightly different thickness, once laid one side can be unlevel and will need shimming up in one particular area to avoid the slab rocking. The shim can simply be snapped into segments and used on one quadrant.

3mm SHIMS FOR USE WITH DECKING PEDESTALS

The 3mm thick shim has a slightly different shape to the 1mm and 2mm shims. Their shape allows for them to be used with TD support pads.
