Keson OTRS High-Speed Series Fiberglass Measuring Tape Features
The OTRS series pairs an incredibly durable housing with our excellent blades. The housing features double rivets that provide added strength. End caps on the arms further protect the housing. The shovel handle with rubber over-mold keeps your grip sure and comfortable. We cover each blade with two coats of PVC protected by double shield, one to bind the fiberglass strands and a second over the printed units, so the numbers don't wear away.
The 3X high-speed rewind gearing is made up of metal, strip-proof gearing.
Fiberglass Long Tapes
Keson fiberglass measuring tapes have met the highest standards of accuracy for quality measurements. They resist breakage and damage under the toughest field conditions. Each blade is covered with two coats of PVC protected by double shield, one to bind the fiberglass strands and a second over the printed units so the numbers don't wear away.
Keson fiberglass reinforced tapes are designed to withstand more wear and tear than any other type of fiberglass measuring tape. They contain 40,000 fiberglass strands for greater tensile strength and superior accuracy when tension is applied. Two coats of PVC protect the tapes from breaking, and a blade shield adds strength to the attachment (the point at which most fiberglass tapes break). These tapes have proven dielectric strength of 200,000 V/M to assure your safety from electrical hazards.
Fiber Count & Tape Weight
The weight of a tape is a factor to consider if you do a great deal of measuring. With these heavy-duty fiberglass tapes, you're getting the strongest possible fibers - and the greatest number - packed into the thinnest possible tapes to keep the weights down while keeping the blades strong.
Tapes elongate (stretch) when excessive pulling force is applied. Keson heavy-duty fiberglass always returns to its proper length after the pulling stops. The reason is the high fiberglass strand count. To keep your fiberglass measurements as accurate as possible, don't pull too hard when making your measurements.
