New tape measures from Stabila

Exact measurement results over long distances

Expanded range of closed case and open reel tapes/Reliable measurements for distances of up to 330 ft. (100 m)/User-friendly design/Can be used flexibly thanks to special hooks
The LBM 1000 open reel tape from STABILA is available in different lengths, depending on the version.

Various trades work together as a team on construction sites, whether they are at a residential complex or commercial building. All of the procedures have to be right to avoid unnecessary delays. And tradespeople put equally high demands on their equipment. The tools have to be reliable, precise and easy to use. So that it can offer the right solutions for a variety of requirements, STABILA has replaced its previous long tape measure range with two new models. With the LBM 1000 open reel tape and the LBM 2000 closed case tape, professionals have the right tools to hand for quick and precise measurements over long distances. Depending on the version, they can measure distances of up to 330 ft. (100 m).

The LBM 2000 closed case tape from STABILA sits securely in your hand thanks to its ergonomically shaped casing.

The LBM 1000 has a durable steel blade that comes in lengths of 165 ft. (50 m) and 330 ft. (100 m). The LBM 2000 also has a steel blade and comes in lengths of 66 ft. (20 m) and 100 ft. (30 m). Both tape measure models come with the option of imperial or metric scale. 

For the steel blades, STABILA guarantees exact measurement results with accuracy class II. Measurements with the fiberglass versions achieve reliable measurement results to accuracy class III.

The hand crank on the LBM 1000 from STABILA can be easily adjusted for right or left-handed use.

User-friendly design

You can see at a glance that the measuring tapes were developed with a focus on convenient use. The LBM 2000 sits securely in your hand thanks to its ergonomically shaped casing. The soft-grip handle on the LBM 1000 makes it easy to hold and tension securely. The crank is another clever detail on this model. It is easy to change it from right to left-handed use and, when folded in, it facilitates measurements by pulling.

Using tried-and-tested features

The new tape measure models are also equipped with the trusty STABILA Universal Spikes Hook

Both tape measures have been designed to reliably withstand heavy use on a daily basis. Here, STABILA relies on features that have proven themselves when put to the test in existing models, such as the STABILA Universal Spikes Hook, which comprises a large plastic ring with nail notch and an anti-slip Spikes hook with eyelet. It can be mounted in different ways, provides a secure hold when pulling the tape and better prevents slipping when measuring on smooth surfaces and over large distances.

Long-life, professional-grade equipment

The LBM 1000 from STABILA masters precise measurements over long distances with a steel blade of up to 330 ft. (100 m) in length.

Professional-grade tools have to prove that they function well even in the toughest conditions. Therefore, STABILA kept the longevity of its products in mind when selecting which materials to use. The LBM 1000 tape measure’s Y-frame and the LBM 2000’s casing made of high-grade PC/ABS plastic are shatterproof and protect the tape against heavy impacts on the construction site or when being transported. The scale on the steel blades is protected by the STABILA nylon-wrap coating.

On both the LBM 1000 open reel tape and LBM 2000 closed case tape from STABILA, the large plastic ring with nail notch and the fold-out, anti-slip Spikes Hook with eyelet provide a secure hold and a range of mounting options.
The cleverly constructed plastic ring means that 2 cm from the zero point to the nail notch and 5 cm from the zero point to the start of the ring are simply added to the measured length.
