But first, here’s a glimpse of the testing results which compares Stackers to its competing system.
This is how both sets of Shims performed during testing on a 50mm shim stack:

Competing System – photo on the right
So why the difference? The Stacker Packer system has less voids, resulting in a larger load bearing surface area of 27% greater than the competing system – that’s why the results vary so much.

We’ve altered the design of our 5mm and 10mm shims – so when they’re inverted, both loaded surfaces are completely flat. We’ve also introduced the Brilliant Ideas logo.
Stacker Packers are load rated at 30N/mm² (under factored load) and ensure safe and stable structure during installation. They’re suitable for a multitude of applications where the levelling shims are required to be load bearing – they’ve been used on top-tier Football Clubs, La Sagrada Familia Basilica, Sandwell Aquatics (2022 Commonwealth Games), Lords Cricket Ground and Wimbledon Court One – to name a few.
These interlocking shims and are a good alternative to steel shims – they’re lighter, easy to carry around site, and cost less. Applications – steel frame buildings, precast concrete components, modular pods and buildings.
“We’ve already used thousands of them on a premier league football club development project and we intend to use them again on our forthcoming projects. Stacker Packers is a great product”.
