The Lightning Strike Screed from Lura Enterprises has a lightweight design that makes screed projects a two-person job. The screed allows a variety of applications, including pervious concrete, low-slump mud, and the ability to do uphill, downhill or circular pours. At less than 4.5 pounds per foot, the screed’s aluminum tubes are about half the weight of traditional roller screeds. Screed sections can bought separately or in a contractors package that has a 20-, 12-, 6- and 4-foot roller as well as two wall plugs, two riser wheels, three collapsible tri-pod set up stands and an accessory tote.
