Measure for Measure

A ‘robust measuring system’ to provide maximum visibility in the harshest jobsite conditions has been launched by Hilti.

The product – - the PM 2-LG Green line laser – uses a green laser beam, rather than the traditional red, for what is said to be maximum visibility and sharp, fine lines to allow clear levelling and aligning up to distances of 20 metres and more.

With an operation time of eight hours and an accuracy of ±3 mm at 10m, the product is suitable for a wide range of uses, including transferring reference heights, aligning pipes and levelling doors, windows and ceilings. A large fan angle creates a wider working area.

The PM 2-LG Green line laser’s design and rubber-coated housing make it shock, dust and water resistant which is reported to minimise downtime and expensive repairs.

The company states that all its measuring systems can be purchased through the company’s fleet management programme, whereby a fixed monthly charge covers all tool, calibration, service and repair costs over four years which includes drop cover and theft protection.
