Lasers and Surveying

How Construction Lasers Work

Construction lasers have been described as visual chalk-lines without the chalk. These instruments provide light beams that aid contractors by projecting control points on construction sites. Instrument manufacturers have fine-tuned these devices so that they provide a safe, consistent, and visible light beam for practically all types of construction applications.

Where to Draw a Line, or Make a Point

Many contractors are using point and line lasers to provide control points on walls and ceilings. In recent years, manufacturers have upped their capabilities, so that some have as many options as their more expensive rotary levels. Check with your White Cap professional on the instrument that best fits your application.

What features do I need on my rotary laser?

Rotary lasers have become the workhorse of the jobsite. They provide control data for tasks occurring over a large area. And with the right targets, many crews can share the laser beam to conduct their own work on large projects.

 

Red Beam vs. Green Beam

Selecting your laser beam color is more than a just a choice of hue. Your decision will affect the distance from which you can work from your instrument, your workers ability to see the beam, how long your instrument can operate between charges, and your initial investment.  

For many types of contractors, the choice will be an easy one.  In reviewing your answers to these four simple questions, your White Cap professional will help you make the right choice.

Laser Instrument Maintenance and Calibration

When operating at top performance, laser levels are accurate to within +/- 1/16 of an inch at a distance of about 100 feet. When compared to a traditional spirit level, these units are easily ten times more accurate. Over time, however, a laser's accuracy can be significantly diminished through normal wear and tear of every-day jobsite conditions. It is important to follow standard care and maintenance steps to ensure.
