Thick shims or foundation shims are used to assist with heavy equipment installations and foundation repair. Our thick shims are produced using a solid plate of A36 steel or 302/304 stainless steel and are manufactured to withstand intense external pressures.
We produce thick shims in a variety of thicknesses from .187” to 1”.

Thick Shim / Foundation Shim Manufacturing
Our line of thick shims are produced similarly to our standard shims and have the same geometric shape and uncoated finish; however, they are cut via water jet technology. Water jet cutting is a precise method of cutting difficult materials and provides a clean cut with zero taperings. Unlike laser cutting, our 5-Axis Waterjet Cutting System eliminates slag in heat-affected areas.
