Spirit levels are used to find out whether a surface is horizontal (level) or vertical (plumb).
Made from aluminum, this rigid Heavy Duty Level - Type 196 has a strong, reinforced, rectangular frame. All models up to 72", have two milled measuring surfaces, with extra ribbing and powder coating for easy clean-up. Especially useful for overhead (vial down) measurements. Contains acrylic vials for crystal clear readings; in any direction with no change in accuracy tolerance. Designed with a locked vial system, removing the need for recalibration.
Vials have a full lifetime guarantee, preventing leaking, fogging, and adjustment issues. With three vials in all, one horizontal (level) and two vertical (plumb). (On the 16" version, vials are reversed.) Additionally, all models 59" and longer, have a bridge over the vial to increase strength, and surface area for drawing and scribing over the horizontal vial.
Other features; include removable shock-absorbent rubber end caps for corner scribing, and tight header / sill readings. Rubber end caps are able to grip walls tightly, without leaving marks. Two rubberized hand grips provide for extra comfort and slip prevention. (Although, the 16" version has only one hand grip.) With a central metal 'hang-hole' for on-site storage purposes.
