Dear Fellow Tradesmen
We offer some valid information
on our new Prostaff 21 Bricklayers Profile Tool and System; we know will help in
any curriculum to allow apprentices to learn and adopt our system before they
embark onto the building site, and in order to promote excellence in the
Firstly, we totally agree with
the need for the initial learning of using the level to construct any brick,
block or stone feature, which builds confidence and skill in any apprentice or
trainee, of which they will eventually take onto site; and we categorically
agree that this is an essential course that all apprentices and trainees must
We also know that most brickwork
professionals and tutors understand that during on-site production, the old
practice of building corners usually results in the coursing being out of gauge,
because they are still wet when the weights of the above courses are directly
applied. The latter can result in different sized bed joints and line wander,
and that will badly reflect through the whole construction.
Considering the latter, our new
Prostaff 21 does away with the need for the time wasting tiresome processes to
construct individual corners, of having to line and level each course to
construct corners in order to eventually string the line to build in the bulk;
which usually is not very precise; and if the mixing is not quite correct, this
will result in “corner stand out”. Our Prostaff 21 will save at least 30% in
time over this old practice, because it is a tool that incorporates all the
skills needed for building any section of wall construction, consistently
We advise from our trials and
vast experience that our Prostaff 21 (along with our other tools) should be a
part of the curriculum and standard in all training centres and colleges
throughout the UK. We advise the latter considering there is a dire shortage of
skilled bricklayers, masons and builders in the industry; and because our tools
will assist in providing the means to cut out about 80% of labour in corner
building, because the Prostaff 21 will assist with a direct means of laying to
the line in course sequence, which allows the lower courses to effectively set
as the works proceed, in order to construct perfect constructions every time.
Our one set Prostaff 21 will fit
all types of wall constructions (without any need for mountains of additional or
extra equipment), it is easy to set up and use and has become the preferred
stand alone self stabilized lightweight robust and long lasting bricklayer’s
profile, that provides a consistent precise standard for anyone who uses them.
The ProStaff 21 has become “THE
