U-Shaped Shims can typically withstand ten tons of compressed force, lightweight "U" shaped structural shims are designed to fit around bolts and anchors. They are often used for aligning windows and curtain walls.
Key Slot Shims are shaped to snap into place around a bolt. They have a restricted slot to keep them from sliding off a bolt or anchor when hung vertically. Offered in multiple color-coded thicknesses.
Horse Shoe Shims are shaped to fit around a bolt or anchor. They are frequently used during installation of storefronts, in applications where the shim is placed vertically. Offered in multiple color-coded thicknesses.
Flat Plate shims are used where heavy loads are set on top of the shim, often permanently. Applications include tilt-up construction, precast concrete elements, masonry blocks, and heavy machinery.
Micro-Gridded Flat-Plate Shims are now available with precisely textured surfaces that mate for stacking with increased slip-resistance.
Stackable Shims are made in very fine thicknesses to allow small, precise increments of leveling or aligning. Multiple shims can be stacked to achieve shimming tolerances down to 1/32”.
Tapered Wedge Shims are easy to use for leveling and aligning dead loads. Designed for easy insertion where installation is required, especially where the object being shimmed is installed first and then shimmed.
