What is a shim?

The best way to describe a ‘shim’ is that it is essentially a ‘spacer’ or ‘washer’ that is a thin piece of material used between objects to fill small gaps and spaces. With the shim filling this gap it allows for a better fit, level surface or can support the object better.

We manufacture shims and foil in a wide range of materials including:

  • Rubber
  • Foam
  • Plastic
  • Felt
  • Fabric
  • Leather
  • Aluminium
  • Brass
  • Many more
