Leveling rods are an important part of many surveying applications, although you can also find them on construction sites and used alongside other instruments. For all of these environments, you’ll need a rod that’s strong and durable, with the right coating to protect against the elements. It also needs to be easy to transport and use, with high-contrast lettering and accurate measuring in the right graduation for your application.
Fortunately, Crain’s Rectangular Leveling Rod fits the bill. With 16 feet of length and 1/10th measurements, it fulfills the needs of many surveying jobs. It offers:
- Durable construction. Durability is critical when working among the elements, and your leveling rod may need to stand up to rain, wind, snow and typical bumps and scrapes. The Crain leveling rod is resistant to water and corrosion and made of non-conductive fiberglass for a sturdy build. It also features stand-off ribs to protect the scales from wear and tear.
- Easy-to-read measurements. Crain provides a graduated width that fills the entire face of the glare-resistant rod and a measuring scale on the back for general height readings. Plus, since it’s built tough, you don’t need to worry about measurements getting too worn off to read any time soon.
- Adaptability. This leveling rod also has a 1/4×20 female adapter on the top, so you can link it up with other accessories, such as bubble levels and leveling plates.
- Easy to use. The Crain rectangular leveling rod features rounded corners for an easier grip and four adjustable sections with unbreakable locking buttons. The rectangular shape also allows for laser detector mounting without using a special bracket. When collapsed, the rod is small and easy to take with you.
To make the most of surveying work, you need tools that are durable, easy to use and accurate. The Crain rectangular leveling rod is an excellent choice.
