Laser Tape Measures are alternatives to traditional metal Tape measure. They are used to calculate Lengths, Widths and Heights of up to 40/50/60/80/100/120m.
They are generally considered accurate when measuring a distance. Laser Tape Measures are mainly used by people who do a lot of measuring; however, Home owners can easily use Laser Tape Measures around the house too.
- To use a Laser Tape Measure, you place the device on one end of what you want to measure, then aim the Laser beam such that it hits an object at the other end such as wall, Pole etc..
- In the absence of object, you can put a target at the spot you want to measure up to. The process is similar to using a conventional Tape measure, except you use a Laser beam instead of metal Tape.
- Once you have your Laser Pointed at the spotted area, identify and press the measure button; it will automatically measure to where the Laser (Red Light) is pointed and the tape measure calculates the distance and display it on its screen.
- The calculation is done through Precision optics and Laser Physics using the phase shift method, in which a Laser hits an object and compares its reflection with the beam sent out.
- Some Laser tape measures allow you measure multiple distances and add them together automatically. Laser tape measures are normally quicker to use than conventional ones and avoid the inaccuracies that can be caused by a twisted or sagging tape measure.
It is easier to read a digital display of the measurement than to count little lines on a tape measure. Laser tape also eliminates the complications of measuring high ceilings and other hard to reach spaces.
