Curb Roller Manufacturing is a world leader in shaped concrete roller screeds. Recently, the company introduced its first modular screed system, the patent pending Lynx Screed. This versatile alternative to completing flatwork provides a series of linkable screed pipes to accommodate concrete pours in varying widths from 3 to 22 feet. Unlike traditional roller screeds, the Lynx modular system removes the need for purchasing dedicated pipe lengths to offer easy adaptability for a multitude of pours. Its aluminum design decreases strenuous set up, shipping costs and transportation requirements for jobs that call for longer pipes.
“Screed adaptability and efficiency have been two of the biggest obstacles for concrete contractors’ productivity,” said Seth Ulmer, Curb Roller Manufacturing sales manager. “With our Lynx Screed, contractors can work on pours ranging from a 22-foot-wide street to a 5-foot-wide sidewalk in the same day with just a few sections of pipe that can fit in a standard pickup.”
More about the Lynx Screed System
The Lynx modular screed system, compatible with the manufacturer’s Eel and Batt screeds, is available in two packages. Package one consists of three 7-foot pipes and package two contains a 5-, 7- and 9-foot pipe. You can also customize the system to include any 3-, 5-, 7- and 9-foot length combination up to 22 feet.
In addition to more versatility over standard roller screeds, the Lynx Screed offers greater ease of use and reliability compared to other modular systems on the market through its quick and secure field assembly design. You can easily align and connect the Lynx pipes with three separate bolts and a centering ring.
The operator simply places the centering ring between two pipes, securely seating them together. From there, the cutouts at the pipes’ ends allow the operator to easily insert three bolts. This secures the pipes together by tightening the nuts. With this setup, users don’t have to retighten their pipes mid-job or worry about unthreading when changing screeding directions.
The Lynx Screed system eases maintenance and setup by using different size nuts and bolts. These sizes are 9/16 and 11/16. This enables contractors to use a single, common wrench set for assembly and disassembly. The Lynx setup is completed by bolting drive and static heads to the assembled pipe’s ends. Then you connect it to Curb Roller Manufacturing’s electric Eel Screed. You can also connect it to the battery-powered Batt Screed.
“Until recently, those looking for flexibility were stuck with cumbersome A-frame screeds or expandable roller screeds that require constant retightening or special tools,” says Ulmer. “With our stable connection points, customers can quickly assemble and complete the job — no hassle, no holdups.”
