Laser Line

By On-Site   


Trimble’s Spectra PrecisionLT58 Laser is an automatic self-leveling laser that projects three 360-degree planes of  bright green laser light on the horizontal plane. The horizontal green beam is intersected by two vertical red laser planes spaced 90 degrees apart, providing references for interior layout tasks including wall layout and installation, point transfer, finish carpentry, tile layout, and horizontal and vertical alignment. The laser is compact, lightweight and can be easily setup using the included wall mount. Installation on high-ceiling grids can be a quick, easy task as compared to conventional heavier, wall mounted, rotating lasers. The LT58 package includes a universal mounting accessory that allows mounting to various sized ceiling track—including shadow tracks that require alignment to the top of the track. Mounting to tripods, columns and studs of various sizes is also possible. The mount has fine vertical height and horizontal rotation adjustment. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery, providing a typical battery life of 19 hours with the green beam. In addition, the ecological friendly, rechargeable battery can lower operating costs compared to disposable alkaline batteries. A tough housing with generous overmold is designed to protect the unit and endure the rigors of the construction environment. This tool is specified to withstand a 3 foot (1 meter) drop test.  www.spectralasers.com
