What are tape measures used for?

Tape measures are essential tools used to measure distances, lengths and dimensions correctly. They are commonly used in various industries such as construction, carpentry, engineering, crafting, and home improvement.

How do tape measures work?

Tape measures consist of a long, flexible strip made of metal or fiberglass, marked with precise measurements. They are housed in a compact round-ish casing with a retractable mechanism. By pulling the tape out and locking it at the desired length, users can obtain accurate measurements effortlessly.

What are the different types of tape measures available

At ITS we stock a range of magnetic tape measures, in both metric and imperial readings and vice versa. There are also laser tape measures that use laser technology for precise measurements and pocket-sized tape measures for on-the-go convenience.

Can tape measures measure curved surfaces?
