Q: What is a roller screed?

The Speed Screed™ Roller (SSR) is a variable length triple tube roller system that allows users to easily swap rollers and extension frames between jobs that require different pour widths. With rollers and extensions available from 10’ to 32’ in single foot increments, almost any job can be easily handled with this machine.

Q: How does a roller screed work?

A roller screed consists of mechanized seamless pipes that spin against the concrete as contractors drive the unit over form rails. Roller screeds do not vibrate the concrete, so if vibration is engineered into a project a contractor will have to perform vibration manually.

Q: Roller vs Vibratory

Rolling screeds are more effective than vibrating screeds for pervious paving, low slump concrete, and slope paving.                                               

Vibratory Screeds do a slightly better job of leveling, but a considerably better job of consolidating.

Q: Widths available? Max and Min?
