Concreting Tools: Handles, Rollers, Sprays and Spreaders
TELESCOPIC HANDLE & CLIP TOGETHER HANDLE
TOOL: 1076 TELESCOPIC HANDLE
Extends from 2.75 m to 5 m.
Widely used for many floating and finishing jobs enabling the work to be achieved from a standing position, external from the concrete slab.
The inside tube is grooved. A pin penetrates this groove. This allows the twisting action the operator applies to the handle to be transferred to the floor. The handle length is locked by lightly twisting the collet nut.
The handle also features a removable clip on steel tube adaptor (part No. 1076E). This allows the operator to unclip the handle from the tool for cleaning, storage or to fit to another tool. Additional adaptor tubes 1076E may be purchased for this purpose.
TOOL: 588 CLIP TOGETHER HANDLE
2 metres long.
The aluminium tube is fluted to enhance grip. The inserted end tube is zinc plated steel, swaged down to fit neatly on the shaft of a bull float, walking trowel, or broom bracket.
Three or four of these handles may be aligned together to give a reach of 6 to 8 metres.
To obtain a 7 m reach, a 588 clip handle can be clipped onto the 1076 telescopic handle.
Fits bullfloats, brooms, walking trowels and Fresno trowels.
WARNING. When using telescopic handles and long length of clip together handle, near to electric wires or other high voltage installations, care should be taken to avoid contacting live wires as such contact may be lethal.
EXPANDED MESH CONCRETE ROLLER
Better FinishThe action of the expanded metal rollers closes the aggregate, at the same time inducing a low frequency vibration into the concrete. This reduces the surface tension of the mortar, leaving a thin film of latence on the surface.
Roller widths (mm) - 914, 760, 609
Handle - 2 lengths of 1600
These trowels have a 1.6 mm thick steel blade and timber handle.
QTF has a 10 mm square tooth for applications requiring a thick bed of adhesive, such as quarry tiles.
QTF 2 has a 6 mm saw tooth for areas where less adhesive is required.
