AirShim: A 2.5 Ounce Inflatable Shim That Lifts Up to 300 Pounds
New tool has dozens of uses - lifting, supporting, leveling, adjusting
9/24/2015

CARSON CITY, Nev. - Calculated Industries, the makers of Construction Master Pro calculators, is now selling its new AirShim Inflatable Pry Bar and Leveling Tool. The AirShim is a contractor-grade inflatable bag that can support up to 300 pounds and spans gaps from 3/32" to 2-1/2". The AirShim allows a single installer to position and hold items in place, saving jobsite time and reducing labor costs by providing a much-needed extra hand in installations.

Inflatable shims got their start in the automotive world where they have been used by tow truck drivers to unlock car doors. These early models are smaller, lighter and typically can only lift up to 200 pounds. They were re-designed by Calculated Industries to be a more useful tool for builders and installers who need a stronger, more powerful inflatable shim to lift, level and hold doors, windows and other awkward, heavy objects. It is made of tougher material and its rounded corner and internal stiffener gets it into tight 3/32" gaps and won't fold under pressure. The wide 2-1/2" gap spanning capacity means greater lifting or pushing range.

The Air Shim has been compression tested with a load of 300 pounds. SGS - the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company - tested the tool and certified that it held for 60 minutes with no damage, cracking or notable leakage.

Easy one-handed operation using a simple squeeze pump and precise bleeder valve lets you raise and lower to perfect alignments. And unlike wooden shims, wedges and metal pry bars, the AirShim poses no risk of damage. Its durable, no-scuff cover leaves no marks on surfaces.

It's perfect for window and door installers, interior construction professionals, installers of appliances and small equipment, cabinetmakers, woodworkers and other skilled craftsmen and serious DIYs. The AirShim can be used for installing appliances, beams, cabinets, doors, equipment, furniture, HVAC, plumbing, joists, countertops, mantels, bathroom fixtures, curtain walls, flanges, windows, and more. It is backed with a one-year warranty.
