Milwaukee, WI - Milwaukee Tool introduces several new tape measures designed to maximize durability and increase functionality. The new tape measures feature Nylon Bond Blade Protection for resistance to jobsite contamination and a 5-point reinforced frame for protection against damage from dropping. Coming to market over the next six months, the new tape measure line will include (9) Magnetic Tape Measures and (9) Non-Magnetic Tape Measures, varying in lengths from 16’-35’ in the Imperial Measurement System (in/cm), 5m-10m in the Metric Measurement system and 5M/16’- 10M/33’ in the combination of both. The magnetic version will feature a new-to-world Dual Magnet design: one magnet will hold the hook in the front of the tape to the edge of the material, and the other magnet will secure the tape to the material from below. This design is intended to securely hold the tape measure in place and prevent roll off when measuring materials such as threaded rod, steel studs or conduit. In addition, each of the Tape Measures include an innovative Finger Stop area to hold the blade in place instead of using the lock. The wire frame protects the user’s finger when the hook retracts. For added functionality, the tape measures also include a blue print scale for 1/4” and 1/8” drawings to help the user accurately calculate material needs for projects, as well as a wire form belt clip for storage convenience.
