The Tek stump is an innovative product designed to save time and effort for re-stumpers and builders alike. Made from higher cement content and a revolutionary core reinforcement design (including galvanised rio), the Tek stump has been able to reduce the size and weight of the stump and promote ease on difficult jobs. The Tek stump has also proven its adaptiveness to new housing sites, the lighter stump being less inclined to sink into freshly poured footings, resulting in less time packing and a much straighter job.
The hoop iron clip acts as a saddle that enables you to fix either side to the bearer using a tek screw, this process allows the stump to be effectively pulled up to the bearer, again limiting the need for packers. The Stump is reinforced with galvanised Rio to prevent rust, and later concrete cancer (When rust expands and causes the concrete to crack), whilst the end of the stump is coated in bitumen paint to prevent moisture from entering the concrete.

Traditional building specifications automatically demand 100 x 100 mm stumps to meet building specifications and plans. However, Tek stump’s revolutionary 75mm and 85mm stumps are changing the way many builders and re-stumpers think. These lighter weight, more cost effective and easier to work with stumps often cause confusion where plans stipulate 100x100mm stumps must be used. The Tek stump has met all building regulations to allow 75x75 and 85x85mm stumps to be used in lieu of traditional 100x100mm stumps in 95% of situations where traditional 100x100mm stumps are commonly specified.
