Laser Guided System Takes Concrete Floors to the Next Level

Wed March 18, 2009 - National Edition

Allen Engineering has introduced a new system for producing level concrete floors (as measured by FL Numbers) when using hand held floater screeds. The Screed Rail: a Laser Guided Form System can be used with any make of floater screed for quick and easy wet screeding of large elevated pours where high FL (levelness) numbers are demanded. The screed rail system comes with a set of two rails with floats and laser level adjustable ends (Laser beacon/receiver and portable screed not included).

The Screed Rail Laser Guided Form System offers concrete contractors the following advantages:

• Improves floor levelness

• Increases floor flatness (Typically increases FF more than 50 percent)

• Tightly controls elevation (Maintains 80 percent of elevation reading plus/minus .25 in.)

• Eliminates “call backs”

• Produces bid opportunities

• Reduces risk (Crews can routinely exceed FL 20 specs on all types of elevated decks)
