Measuring Tape Specially Designed for Applying Architectural Shingles

The Roofers Tape is specially designed for installing 5-5/8-inch architectural shingles. Crew members can mark and layout the roof quickly and accurately without mistakes using the Red Points and Red Arrows as a guide, minimizing waste and saving money. All measurements of 5-5/8 intervals are marked on the 25-foot Roofers Tape. The 5-5/8 layout reveal complies with factory recommended installation, especially with wind damage. The Black Points are also included for marking short vertical starter lines or bond lines on standard three-tab shingles 6 inches before any even three feet.

The Roofers Tape weights one pound. It has a .0045 blade, a triple rivet end hook, a positive lock, a heavy-duty spring, and has an impact resistant ABS plastic case. It is made in the USA by US Tape.

Tape Measures in 16-, 25- and 35-Foot Lengths Are Durable Enough for Construction Sites

The 16-, 25- and 35-foot Premium Tapes are ideal for heavy-duty framing and other construction measuring tasks.

The 16-, 25- and 35-foot Premium Tapes are ideal for heavy-duty framing and other construction measuring tasks.

DEWALT introduces a family of Premium Tapes. The 16-, 25- and 35-foot Premium Tapes are ideal for heavy-duty framing and other construction measuring tasks. The tapes feature a reinforced housing and cast metal impact plate to absorb shocks when dropped to protect internal components and the end hook. Extensive rubber over-molding covers all contact points of the tapes for improved grip.

These tapes also feature a five screw design for improved drop resistance. Holding the body together are four reinforced screws on the corners and one in the center for added support.

The tape blades are made from durable steel coated in Mylar polyester protecting the blade from the elements and providing a long blade life. A 13-foot blade standout allows unaided measuring from a distance or overhead without the tapes bending or collapsing while extending.

The blade also features an oversized end hook ideal for grabbing on to lumber, steel, concrete and other materials. The Premium Tapes are designed in a manner that protects the end hook when dropped, reducing the risk of bending—which causes inaccurate measurements. These DEWALT Premium Tapes are 50 times more durable than their respective Milwaukee counterparts 48-22-5116 (16-foot), 48-22-5125 (25-foot) and 48-22-5135 (35-foot) based on accuracy after drop onto the hook.

For added durability, the Premium Tapes are constructed of high-impact ABS polymer and covered in durable rubber over-mold. The tapes also feature a lock switch which is covered in rubber over-molds capable of absorbing impact. Lock switches on competitor tapes are plastic and easily crack and break.

The Premium Tapes are made in the U.S. with global materials.

Stanley introduced the new 25-foot FatMax auto-locking tape rule—model FMHT33338—in 2013.

At the very heart of every professional’s tool collection is a tape rule. The new FatMax tape has a blade that automatically locks at the length to which it is extended. When the release button is depressed, the blade retracts. The auto-locking feature allows users to control tape retraction which helps to provide long blade life. The tape also features a manual mode, a setting used to override the auto-locking mechanism, enabling it to become a traditional retractable tape, by depressing the button and pulling back away from the hook.

Featuring a customizable hook system, users can configure their tape for the right application.

Historically, auto-locking tapes have been popular among DIY users, but this tape offers the features and benefits that professionals have come to expect from the FatMax brand. The 1-1/4 inch blade touts 11 feet of standout (based on maximum performance). The blade is coated in Mylar and features BladeArmor coating for durability and long life. The True-Zero end hook provides accurate measurements.
