SkyLine Product Line
In 1986, Somero Enterprises was founded and so marked the first industry-wide revolution that the company would embark upon. Dave and Paul Somero were concrete contractors, and they knew that a machine could get them better quality floors with more efficiency all with a faster process than the current manual methods of placing concrete. Not wanting to wait on a company to manufacture the machines that would deliver this Faster.Flatter.Fewer solution, they took it upon themselves and 35 years later the idea of doing a big, quality-driven slab-on-grad projects without a Somero® Laser Screed® Machine is almost un-thinkable.
With this same industry-changing mindset and self-reliance in our DNA, we are embarking on our second revolutionary machine innovation – The SkyLine machine line. Consisting of the SkyScreed® 36 & 25 Laser Screed® Machines and the SkyStrip machine, we are looking to partner with the structural high market and deliver quality, safety and efficiencies never thought possible for concrete floors in this space.
The SkyScreed® brings the precision and speed of the laser screed® machine to structural projects and we promise you won’t believe the numbers when you hear them. With the right project profile and layouts, the SkyScreed® 36 has achieved Fl numbers in the mid-to-high 30s and in some case the low-to-mid 40s. The early adopters of this technology have been blow away and we believe that is it just a matter of the SkyScreed will be the rule on high rise projects all over North America.
The second machine in the SkyLine machine line, is the SkyStrip. This machine focuses on solving the dangerous and slow process of stripping shoring sheets. This machine is engineered to strip the plywood sheets, lower them to safe hand-off height and keep going for as long as it takes. Put simply, this machine saves the shoring team a lot of fatigue and keeps them fresh for the more important, higher skilled aspects of their jobs. When job claims and skilled labor shortage keep a developer up at night, this machine will help them all sleep a little easier.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“Working with the Sky Screed we were able to save 90 minutes on our deck with 5 fewer men.”
“The SkyStrip takes the otherwise injury prone plywood sheet-stripping process and makes it a much less dangerous process, saving my team from the possibility of serious injury. Safety is the first priority on every job we do. It is our job as owners and managers to see that our people have all the tools available to protect them and keep them safe. I see this as a major breakthrough for the safety of our skilled labor force. We have been stripping concrete formwork for the last 100 years, the same way. The SkyStrip is the future of stripping concrete formwork."

We’re proud to introduce the Somero Sky Screed Laser Screed Machine, the first Knuckle Boom Laser Screed machine in the world to allow screeding on structural high-rise and slab-on-grade applications. This revolutionary Laser Screed machine was developed to increase labor savings, improve floor quality, and increase productivity. The innovative articulating knuckle boom makes all of this possible by providing unparalleled versatility.
SkyStrip Shoring Sheet Stripping Machine
How This Machines Changes the Game:
– Reduces lost labor time due to injury in one the most injury prone activities in the
shoring process, no overhead work and waist-high sheet handling.
– Reduces material waste in the manual sheets stripping process by 50%, dropped
sheets from manual process.
– Reduced manpower needed in the sheet stripping process, sheet stripping can be
managed by a single operator.
