Measurement / Scale

After length, the most important consideration when choosing a tape measure is the measurement scales printed on the blade (or 'tape'). You may think that there are just the two scales out there for the UK market... metric only and metric/imperial. You'd be wrong! Whilst these are, by some margin, the most popular scales on the market, some niche firms also supply tape measures with an engineering scale (10ths of inches, 10ths of feet - otherwise known as decimal feet or inches) which are popular with oil and aerospace industries amongst others. Some others (predominantly American firms such as Lufkin) supply conventional imperial only tapes with inches divided into 16ths.

Whilst we stock a huge range of metric-only or metric/imperial tape measures for same day despatch, we also source and supply more specialist tape measures for businesses throughout UK, Europe and the world. If you have a requirement for a tape measure that little bit out of the ordinary please do get in touch. We guarantee to do our best to help.
