Flatter, smoother, faster, better

Screed

Our Lightning Strike Roller Screed produces the precise, accurate concrete finish time and time again

When it comes to flatwork concrete, no job or pour is too big, too small or too challenging for the innovative Honda-powered Lightning Strike Roller Screed, exclusively available in the UK from Multiquip. The key is that this incredible powered roller screed, driven by a sturdy Honda motor, was conceived, designed and developed not in a lab or drawing office, but by a highly experienced concrete contractor. He knew exactly what he was looking for and what’s more he had the experience, talent and vision to produce it. Which is precisely why the amazing Lightning Strike Roller Screed does the job for which it is intended far better than any other piece of kit we have seen.

The thing is, the Lightning Strike Roller Screed is so versatile that it can be used on level pours, on sloping jobs, on straight or on curved contracts. The Lightning Strike Roller Screed can even be used to create perfectly flat, perfectly smooth circular concrete pours.

And thanks to the highly reliable Honda petrol drive unit it often only requires one person to assemble this lightweight, versatile & robust amazing technology.

To give you some idea of the speed, versatility and unmatched efficiency of the Lightning Strike Roller Screed, here are two recent case studies detailing two very different concrete contract challenges.

Building a velodrome

Rebuilding a long-established cycle racing track proved to be a very demanding challenge. The oval track has two straight sections and two 180-degree high-pitched circular bends. On the banked bends the track is over 6.4 metres wide. As a racetrack it was also critical that the surface had a perfectly flat finish and it was this factor that prompted the contractor to go for the Lightning Strike Roller Screed.

He said: “Placing concrete using a roller screed turned out to be even more productive that we had predicted.”

They were able to adjust the screed roller lengths to match the width of the track and the built-in motor ensured that they achieved an even, flat finish in one single pass.

Restoring a spillway

When the emergency spillway of a major dam was damaged it became a race against the clock to complete all the repairs before the next flood season.

The spillway in question is 54.25 metres wide, 930.55 metres long and has an elevation drop of 152.4 vertical metres. Key to the success of the operation was to create a very flat concrete surface to permit efficient water flow. Consequently, the main contractor decided to use a Lightning Strike Roller Screed to achieve the specified flatness standard on the 11.58 metres widths of the floor panels.

The efficiency and ease of use of the Honda engine driven Lightning Strike Roller Screed certainly assisted the contractor in completing this huge project not only to match the demanding standards required but crucially … on schedule.

At Multiquip we can supply the Lightning Strike Roller Screeds with various sizes of aluminium roller tubes. So for instance, if you use three 2.44m tubes you can screed areas over 7 metres wide. Most other screeds would require a single steel 7-metre tube, which then poses serious transport problems. Thanks to the Lightning Strike’s sectional lightweight concept it will easily fit into a Transit van. We can also offer a variety of options that enable you to customise the screed to meet your exact needs. This unique power screed system is easy to transport, easy to assemble extremely easy to operate and we know that it is the best on the market.
