Hultafors launches CC scale on measuring tape

Hultafors - United Kingdom

Hultafors already offers the market’s most precise steel measuring tape – EU Class 1. Now a
new feature is launched that simplifies the working day of craftsmen around the world. A measuring
tape with a CC measurement on the back of the blade.

It is the steel measuring tape BT that gets both scales printed on the blade.

“Printing a scale for the CC measurements on the back of the blade of the measuring tape makes it even easier to measure and facilitate setting out walls. It simply becomes even easier to measure correctly, right away,” says Hultafors Product Manager Per Eriksson.


The demand for a CC scale on the tape comes from craftsmen who are currently working around the problem in different ways by, for example, cutting a board to the right length to get a correct distance between the rules.

”Utilizing an already existing product by adding a scale is a good example of how our products can contribute to making the work day of the craftsman more efficient,” says Per.


Short measuring tape steel BT is a double-printed steel measuring tape for precise measurement and setting out walls. The steel measuring tape is graded with very accurate inkjet technology and has a matt finish allowing reflection-free reading. The back of the blade has a scale for CC measurements that, for example, facilitates setting out walls. The scale is for CC-measurements 30/60 and 45/90 cm.

”This is an update of the existing tape measure, which means that all BT tape measures will get this double-printed blade,” says Per.

Measuring Tape BT is available in lengths 5 and 8 meters and is available from 4 June 2018.
