Steel Long Tapes
For over 40 years, Keson steel tapes have met the highest standards of accuracy for surveyor quality measurements. They resist breakage and damage under the toughest field conditions. We understand that these tapes are critical to your profession. That's something we take very seriously, which is why we supply the best possible tapes we can.
Keson nylon-coated steel tapes are constructed with a double layered .2mm nylon, permanently bonded over a center core of 13mm steel. Our multi-layer construction assures corrosion resistance (even to salt water) and provides at least three times the usual tape life.
We have designed a variety of housing types for our customers:
Stainless Steel (SNR), 3X High-Speed Rewind (NRS) and standard 1X rewind (NR). Double riveted or screwed cases, metal reinforced handles and shovel-style, rubber grips are standard on all of our offerings.
3/8-inch wide blades are about 10-20% lighter than 1/2-inch wide blades, without sacrificing durability. The thinner blades are also less likely to drift if the wind kicks up.
Keson offers the widest product selection of double nylon-coated blades. Units, attachments and zero points vary because of the precise needs of our many customers.
NYLON-REINFORCED STEEL BLADE, STANDARD REWIND
A Keson best seller! Since 1968 this style of Keson steel tape has been providing customers with accurate measurements. They are used in the harshest conditions in which people measure, and they stand to the only test that matters: field performance.
We have made modifications to the housing over the years:
- Better plastic and molding shapes for increased durability.
- Double screws to hold the housing together in the event of a drop.
- Better blade axle to reduce breakage due to the weight of the tape if dropped.
For years we've been honoring warranty dates long past a single year, so we are now proud to offer a limited lifetime warranty on these products.
- Tough, double nylon-coated steel blades.
