Not all Magic Screeds are Magic Screeds

magic screed

Beware, even though other companies may claim it’s a Magic Screed … it isn’t.

There is only one company in the UK that can supply genuine Magic Screed concrete levelling equipment. That is Multiquip. No other UK company has a license to sell Magic Screed products, so if anyone other than Multiquip offers you a new Magic floating screed … it won’t be genuine.

The reason why some companies call their concrete levelling products Magic Screed – when in fact it is another brand all-together – is that it is the original portable vibrating floating screed equipment … and it has been the market leader for over 35-years.

In other words, Magic Screed has become a generic term for all floating screed concrete levelling products. A bit like Hoover has become a generic term for vacuum cleaners … no matter what the real brand name is. Or Thermos has become a generic term for vacuum flasks … no matter what the real brand name is.

But remember … there is only one genuine range of Magic Screed concrete levelling products. It is the original. The best. And in the UK it is exclusively available from one single source – Multiquip.

When the technology was first introduced over 35-years ago, it totally revolutionised the way large areas of concrete could be levelled and smoothed by one appliance far faster, much better, more efficiently and more cost-effectively than was ever possible before.

It was a revolution that changed the industry’s approach to concrete levelling and smoothing forever.  

So much so that quite naturally other manufacturers attempted to copy the technology, albeit unsuccessfully. Magic Screed has always been ahead of the game.  It has always been the market leader.

The innovative concept behind the success of the product is that the ultra-reliable Honda motor generates an unmatched vibration that is distributed along the entire length of the blade. This, in turn, is transferred to the concrete in order to create an excellent surface vibration that penetrates up to 152mm in depth and ensures excellent compaction together with a smooth, aggregate-free surface.

The Magic Screed control unit could not be easier to handle and control, enabling the operator to produce the very best results within the least possible time. Blades range from 1.2m up to 4.8m in length.

For further information on the range that is exclusively available in the UK from Multiquip please do not hesitate to contact us. You can call us on 0161 339 2223, you can also email us at sales@multiquip.co.uk or you can get in touch by using the online form that can be found on our Contact page.

Exclusive UK launch of the world’s first dustless masonry saw cutter

saw cutter

We’ll be demonstrating our new saw cutter with integrated dust collection, the iQMS362™, on stand number MA8 at PLANTWORX.

Let’s face it; the old style masonry saw cutter just doesn’t cut it any more.

Not when IQ Power Tools has revolutionised the entire concept of cutting brick, block, stone, veneer and tiles without creating clouds of dirty, dangerous, health-threatening dust or without the need for gallons of water and a pool of slimy slurry.  The iQMS362™ is a 420mm blade cutting masterpiece that produces a clean and precise 140mm depth and a full 610mm length of cut. It also cuts up to 40 per cent faster than any other masonry saw cutter in its class.

No dust.  No water. No problem

Now it’s your chance to see this remarkable machine for the first time in the UK and to try it and test it for yourself when you visit the Multiquip Demo Stand number MA8 at PLANTWORX June 11th – 13th.

Make sure you visit our Demo Stand and not only will we demonstrate the incredible performance of this new masonry saw cutter, but you’ll be able to try it and prove to yourself that it is totally unbeatable when it comes to speed, precision, quality control, cleanliness … and the health and safety of your workforce.

  •  Because the iQMS362™ collects a staggering 99.5 per cent of the dust created it means the operator as well as other people close by are no longer at risk from inhaling hazardous silica dust.
  •  Due to the most advanced ‘dry cut’ technology, you won’t have to source a water supply or need to clean up the inevitable mess of saturated slurry at the end of the job.
  •  With its innovative diamond tool blade, the iQMS362™ masonry saw cutter operates 40 per cent faster than any other machine in its class.  It can cut through a 60mm x 100mm paver in a staggering 3-seconds.

Imagine what this new technology could do for your company.  It’s all the more reason why you have to see – and try – it for yourself.  We know you won’t be disappointed. In fact, we know you’ll be more than impressed.

When you visit PLANTWORX later this month make sure you call onto the Multiquip Demo Stand MA8.  It’s your chance to see and trial the remarkable iQMS362™ and prove to yourself why it is a cut above anything else on the market.

If you can’t wait until you go to PLANTWORX to learn more about the iQMS362™ then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.  You can call us on 0161 339 2223, you can also email us at sales@multiquip.co.uk or you can get in touch by using the online form that can be found on our Contact page.
