Time to choose the best supplier
To quickly understand how to choose the best laser distance meter supplier, a few basics must be considered.
Use of the distance measuring device: The choice of your device will depend on how often you use it: for occasional use, an entry-level device may be sufficient. On the other hand, if you use it every day on your construction sites, a professional laser with good autonomy will be more adapted.
Measuring range: To choose the measuring range of your tool, you should consider the use you want to make of it: a 50-meter machine will be sufficient for indoor work and landscaping, while a 250-meter one will be preferable for outdoor work and for measuring buildings.
Laser accuracy: Your tool must be able to calculate distances with great accuracy. The longer the distance you have to measure, the better and more reliable your distance meter should be.
Size and weight of the meter: The rangefinder is a handheld device, so it must be compact, handy, and easy to carry. The best thing to do is to choose a tool that fits in your hand! Also, avoid rangefinders that are too heavy and difficult to hold all day on a job site.
Laser distance meter power supply: Laser rangefinders have 2 types of power supply: they are powered by batteries or by a battery, usually Lithium Ion. This type of battery offers three to four times more autonomy than a battery.
Distance meter sealing system: Waterproofing is an important criterion when choosing a laser meter, especially if you do a lot of outdoor work. Most devices have an international standard protection rating (IP). The IP rating tells you the level of water and dust resistance of the unit. The higher the IP rating, the more waterproof your device will be.
