4 Essential Adjustment Tools for Slab Installation

Techo-Bloc

Paver Pete discusses and demonstrates adjustment tools for slab installation. 

 

 1- SlabEXTRACTOR

When you are laying slabs, we recommend pulling units from both sides of multiple pallets at a time.

We have some products that have a high tone distribution, and the right color mix should be obtained throughout the whole project.

A slab extractor can be used by two people to safely remove a unit and replace it with a lighter or darker unit, balancing the overall appearance of your project.

2- SlabADJUSTER

This tool is an adjustment bar designed to be inserted into a joint. It allows to you shift large sections of pavement to maintain joint alignment.

3- PaverPERSUADER

This hammer is equipped with an angled rubber head, designed to apply a low force on the units, protecting the bedding sand and avoiding rotation.

Sure is better than your boot!

4- StoneSPLITTER

This cutting tool provides the following advantages:

  • No noise. It can be run at 6 in the morning or 8 at night, no problem.
  • No dust, which complies perfectly to the new OSHA silica standard that went into effect in the United States on September 23rd, 2017. Click here for more information.
  • No safety concerns

Place the handle at 45 degrees, let the blade bite into the slab, apply some pressure to the handle to score and then split the unit.
