Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are Screeds & Strikers?
A: Screeds and Strikers are construction tools used for finishing concrete surfaces. They are designed to help smooth and level concrete and ensure a consistent finish.
Q: How are Screeds & Strikers different from other finishing tools?
A: Screeds and Strikers are more efficient than traditional finishing tools such as trowels and bull floats. They cover a larger surface area, making them ideal for large concrete projects. They also provide a more even and uniform finish, which is important for maintaining the integrity and strength of the concrete surface.
Q: What are the benefits of using Screeds & Strikers in construction?
A: Using Screeds & Strikers can save time and reduce labour costs on large concrete projects. They produce a high-quality, even finish that is more durable and long-lasting than hand-finished concrete. They are also more efficient than traditional finishing tools, allowing for faster completion of projects.
Q: How do I use Screeds & Strikers?
A: Using Screeds & Strikers requires some skill and experience, as well as knowledge of the concrete pouring and finishing process. It is typically operated by a trained professional who is familiar with the machine and its capabilities.

Q: What safety precautions should I take when using Screeds & Strikers?
A: Screeds & Strikers can be dangerous if not used correctly. Operators should wear appropriate safety gear such as gloves, safety glasses, and steel-toed boots. They should also be trained in proper operating procedures and safety protocols.
Q: What are concrete screeds and how are they used in construction?
A: Concrete screeds are tools used to level and smooth freshly poured concrete surfaces. They help achieve a flat and even finish, essential for flooring applications. Screeds are typically dragged or pushed across the concrete surface to distribute and level the concrete mixture, ensuring a uniform thickness and eliminating any high or low spots.
Q: What types of strikers are available for concrete finishing?
A: There are various types of strikers available for concrete finishing, including handheld trowels, bull floats, and power trowels. Handheld trowels are versatile and ideal for smaller areas, while bull floats are larger tools used for initial leveling. Power trowels, either walk-behind or ride-on, are motorized and can cover larger areas efficiently.
Q: How do I choose the right screed for my flooring project?
A: When choosing a screed for your flooring project, consider factors such as the size and scope of the project, the desired finish, and your level of expertise. Power screeds are great for larger projects and provide quicker results, while manual screeds offer more control and are suitable for smaller areas. Select a screed that matches your specific requirements.
Q: What are the advantages of using power screeds over manual ones?
A: Power screeds offer several advantages over manual ones. They are more efficient, enabling faster concrete levelling and reducing labour time. Power screeds also provide consistent results and are easier to operate, making them suitable for larger projects. However, manual screeds allow for more precise control and may be preferred for smaller, intricate areas.
Q: Are your screeds and strikers suitable for both DIY projects and professional use?
A: Yes, our range of screeds and strikers is designed to cater to both DIY enthusiasts and professional contractors. We offer tools suitable for various skill levels and project sizes, ensuring that anyone can achieve quality results, whether it's a small DIY project or a large-scale professional construction job.
Q: What materials are your screeds made of (aluminium, magnesium, or steel)?
A: Our screeds are available in a variety of materials, including aluminium, magnesium, and steel. Each material has its own benefits. Aluminium is lightweight and durable, while magnesium offers excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Steel screeds are robust and ideal for heavy-duty applications. Choose the material that best suits your specific project requirements.
Q: Can your strikers be used for other applications apart from concrete finishing?
A: While our strikers are primarily designed for concrete finishing, they can be used for other applications as well. They are versatile tools that can assist with tasks such as smoothing and levelling other cementitious surfaces, including plaster, stucco, and mortar. Always ensure that the striker is compatible with the specific material and application.
Q: Are your screeds adjustable to different depths and widths?
A: Yes, our screeds are adjustable to accommodate different depths and widths. They feature adjustable handles or extensions that allow for flexibility in leveling concrete surfaces of varying thicknesses and widths. This adaptability ensures that you can achieve precise results for your specific project requirements.
Q: Do you offer vibrating screeds for more efficient concrete levelling?
A: Yes, we offer vibrating screeds that can enhance the efficiency of concrete levelling. Vibrating screeds use vibration to help consolidate and settle the concrete mixture, resulting in a smoother and more even finish. This process reduces the need for excessive manual effort and achieves better compaction of the concrete. Vibrating screeds can be a valuable tool for achieving efficient and high-quality concrete levelling, particularly in larger projects where time and labour-saving are important factors.
Q: How do I properly maintain and clean my screeds and strikers?
A: Proper maintenance and cleaning are essential to prolong the lifespan and performance of your screeds and strikers. After each use, remove any concrete residue or buildup using a wire brush or a scraper. Regularly inspect the tools for any signs of wear or damage and replace any worn-out parts. Lubricate movable components as per the manufacturer's instructions and store the tools in a clean, dry place to prevent rust or corrosion.
Q: Are your tools compatible with standard screed rails?
A: Yes, our tools are compatible with standard screed rails. Screed rails are used to guide and support the screed during concrete leveling. Our tools are designed to work seamlessly with these rails, ensuring stability and accuracy during the leveling process. Be sure to check the specifications and compatibility details of our tools to ensure a proper fit with your preferred screed rails.
Q: What is the difference between a screed and a trowel?
A: The main difference between a screed and a trowel lies in their respective functions and usage. A screed is primarily used for leveling and smoothing larger concrete surfaces, typically during the initial stages of concrete placement. It helps achieve a consistent and even surface. On the other hand, a trowel is a smaller hand tool used for more detailed work, such as finishing edges, corners, and hard-to-reach areas. Trowels provide finer control and precision during the concrete finishing process.
Q: Are your strikers designed for comfortable and ergonomic use?
A: Yes, our strikers are designed with ergonomic considerations to provide comfortable and user-friendly operation. They feature handles with ergonomic grips that minimize strain and fatigue during prolonged use. The design ensures a secure grip and optimal control, allowing users to achieve smooth and precise concrete finishes with ease and comfort.
Q: Do you offer warranty or guarantees on your screeds and strikers?
A: Yes, we stand behind the quality of our screeds and strikers. We offer warranties or guarantees on our tools to ensure customer satisfaction. The specific terms and coverage may vary, so please refer to the product descriptions or contact our customer support for detailed warranty information.

A: Absolutely! We understand that each project has unique requirements. Our knowledgeable team can provide personalised recommendations based on your project specifications, such as the size of the area, the desired finish, and your level of experience. Please reach out to our customer support, and we will be more than happy to assist you in selecting the best screeds and strikers for your specific needs.
