DEWALT TOUGHSERIES Tape Measures Focus on Durability and User Experience
Tape measures are essential in almost any job, but they don’t always hold up as well as we would like. DEWALT TOUGHSERIES Tape Measures are designed to survive on the jobsite with features designed to make your measuring tasks easier. We’re teaming up with DEWALT to tell you more about them.
As part of the TOUGHSERIES line, we expect durable construction for these tape measures and DEWALT hits it from several angles. The case features a generous layer of overmolding to help protect the tough outer shell from drops up to 100 feet on compacted ground.
The amount of overmolding and the shape of the housing also give the TOUGHSERIES tape measure a comfortable, secure and natural grip.
However, having a solid case doesn’t matter much if the blade can’t hold up. DEWALT also solves this problem. The entire length of the blade has a coating to help it last longer and the first 6 inches has an additional Rip-Shield coating to protect the section most susceptible to damage.
Function with a twist
From there, it’s all about making the measurement easier for you. The blade is printed on both sides so you can see your measurements on the ground, above, or anywhere in between. This is the first time that DEWALT has offered double-sided printing.
The hook is designed to hold at almost any angle and DEWALT makes a smart move with a removable magnet. To secure it, simply slide the magnet over the rivets on the hook and push it in to lock it in place. The magnet is flush with the end of the hook exactly as you would expect on a magnetic tape measure and is very secure.
If you don’t want it for a particular job, simply remove the magnet and store it in your toolbox for later.
When it comes to standing out, DEWALT TOUGHSERIES tape measures have a 1 3/16 inch wide blade that is capable of reaching 17 feet by holding the tape measure in one hand while supporting the blade with the ‘other.
