AURORA, Illinois, December 19, 2022: At just 4 inches in length, the transparent R 100 pocket level has a number of practical features to help you conduct measurements in even the tightest spaces. Made from break-proof acrylic glass, the R 100 is resistant against water, heat, and cold and is non-conductive. The R 100 has both a horizontal and a vertical vial and has a maximum measuring tolerance of 0.001 in./in. (± 1 mm/m, 0.057°) for precise measurements. The R 100 is also suitable for simple measuring and marking tasks thanks to a printed ruler.
Transparent and Resistant
The R 100 is a block-shaped, compact level made from break-proof acrylic glass. The acrylic glass not only gives the R 100 its distinctive look, but also boasts a number of useful features. The biggest advantage is its transparency, which ensures the working/measuring area is clearly visible at all times and is not obscured by the spirit level. In addition, the R 100 doesn’t leave any scuffs or abrasions on the wall. The acrylic glass is also extremely resistant to external factors such as water, heat, and cold. A further positive feature is that the material does not conduct electricity.
Two Vials and Measuring Scale
Despite its size, the R 100 comes equipped with a vertical and a horizontal vial. Both the vials and the measuring surfaces are milled and therefore extremely precise with a measuring tolerance of just 0.001 in./in. (± 1 mm/m, 0.057°) in its standard position. The R 100 also has both a horizontal and a vertical scale that is easy to read, meaning it can also be used as a ruler or marking aid.
Perfect for Measuring Small Surfaces
At just 4 inches long, the R 100 is particularly suited for conducting measurements in confined spaces. Perfectly fitting into any pocket means it’s always within easy reach. Since the R 100 is non-conductive, it’s perfect for positioning light switches and plugs, whether these are surface or flush-mounted. The R 100 is also ideal for installing junction boxes, wiring, or cable ducts. The R 100 is also the perfect tool for the home: it’s perfect for applications such as aligning washers or dryers or making sure pictures hang straight.
