Tape measure guide

Every craftsman who wants to design his garden or to rebuild his apartment needs a roll measuring tape. It is particularly well suited for measuring whether the new piece of furniture fits in the desired space or how wide and long a new garden path may be. When laying laminate or measuring walls, a roll measuring tape is just right.

Advantages of a roll measuring tape

A roll measuring tape belongs in every household. There are always situations where a role measurement is needed. It is more practical and handy than a classic one rulerand can be stowed well due to its compact size. Rulings are usually only 2 meters long. Often, they must be placed adjacent to each other, which may cause addition errors. On tape measureis therefore a good alternative. They are available in many different lengths. A roll measuring tape can be rolled up and used flexibly at any time. It is ideal for measurements of edges and corners. Even at long distances, the advantages of a roller belt come to the fore. A roller measure is one of the tools that are often made of plastic. A steel tape measure is often covered with fiberglass or plastic. These measuring tapes are not suitable if open lines are near the measurement. The risk of electric shock would be too great. Plastic roller tapes are then more effective. Also this material is very flexible, although it is not as robust as steel.

Characteristics of the roll measuring tape

A roll measuring tape, like all other measuring tape variants, can also be used for short distances. They are often very resistant to moisture and dirt. Frequently they are selected in lengths of 3 m, 5 m, 10 m, 20 m or 50 m. They can be cleverly used when there is little space for a folding rule. In addition to the length and the material of the tape, roller measuring tapes also differ by their housing construction. With a rollback mechanism, they can be rolled up quickly when not in use. Most 10 m roll measuring tapes are often only available in plastic. With the help of a spring mechanism, the measuring tape rolls in again at the push of a button. It can be locked with a parking brake so that it can be kept to a certain length if required. These smaller models are often referred to as Taschenbandmaß. lunger roll gauge tapes are often needed in crafting or surveying. They are often not equipped with an automatic return. Here is the rolling up of the tape measure with a hand crank.

Practical helpers for renovations

High-quality roll measuring tapes have a plastic housing or are equipped with a leather capsule. Even models with an open frame are very popular. Depending on the distance, the measuring accuracy of a roller belt differs. They are 0 to 10 m in the mm range. This means that at a distance of 10 to 100 m, a deviation of centimeters can occur. An inaccuracy can be due to the design or the measurement principle and is taken into account by many professionals. For a roll gauge tape to be rated for accuracy, roll gauge tapes are classified according to an EU accuracy class. This accuracy class is either engraved in the case or it is located directly on the tape measure. At the end of the Rollenmaßbandes is a small hook. This hook is also called a stop angle. As a result, for example, furniture can be measured better. If the hook is a little sharper, then he can also serve as a marker when measuring to hang the picture. He leaves a small hole on the wall, which serves as orientation.
