Stacker Packers are an engineered levelling shim solution, specifically designed for levelling precast concrete units. They’ve been used on high-profile projects including Barcelona Cathedral, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Anfield Main Stand, Wimbledon Court One and Emirates Stadium.
Manufactured from High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS), Stacker Packers have a high compressive strength. Their integral inbuilt dowels allow the levelling shims to interlock horizontally and vertically, forming a safe and stable shim structure.It means site operatives can easily position them without trapping their fingers.
‘We love how Stacker Packers interlock together, where four or six shims become one, to create a safe and stable shim stack. We know that the shims have been independently load tested and manufactured from certified material, so they are ideal for precast concrete stadia components. The interlocking side profile also enables adjustment which keeps the operatives hand away from the trapping zone. You can also interlock adjacent shims to create a larger bearing area. We’ve already used thousands of them on our Fulham Football Club development and we will be using them on our forthcoming projects. Stacker Packers is a great product.’

In construction, there’s often a need to build up height shortfalls, i.e., when levelling stairs and terraces. The packers or shims that are currently used are difficult to stack, easily slide off each other and are difficult to position because of their unstable nature, leading to trapped fingers.
Brilliant Ideas Stacker Packers solves this problem. Our Packers have been moulded with higher dowels which fit into matching recesses, keeping the stack together. Once pressure is applied to the topmost/exposed dowels, they’re designed to collapse into the gap below giving a full and level surface area, with no high points. When setting your final position, connect the edge keys which lock into one another and then, sliding the stack into position, twist the packer to disconnect.

Brilliant Ideas Stacker Packers have been independently tested. Compression tests have been carried out on 50mm and 100mm high stacks containing shims of different thicknesses. A load of up to 200kN was applied and the compressive strength achieved for both stacks were in excess of 40N/mm2.
