Laser Tools for Construction

Laser Tools for Construction

Today we use lasers in a variety of devices and for a multitude of tasks. However, it was not always like this. Before laser levels and even modern levels, a huge amount of calibration and effort went into being able to use a level. As time went on, the level became more advanced and easy to use, and then the laser level was born. The laser level has had a big impact on efficiency and accuracy within construction. Other than being able to determine whether something is level or not, a laser level can measure alignment, angles, distance, and more. 

In this article, we will discuss how laser tools for construction are used, how they work, and the options available.  

How Lasers are Used in Construction? 

Construction laser levels work by focussing a beam of light. This light is amplified from a diode, which is a solid-state device. The beam of light that is projected from the laser creates a straight line that is used as a visual straight-line reference. Smaller light beams are known to be more accurate than broader beams.

Rotary Laser Levels

These lasers were named as such because of their ability to emit a laser line that stretches a full 360 degrees. Depending on the model, they can be used for indoor and outdoor applications. Some of these applications include: 

  • Indoor: These lasers can be used for the alignment and plumbing of walls, drop ceiling installations, cabinet installations, and more.
  • Outdoor: One can use these lasers outdoors when performing site surveys, laying out sites, elevation levelling, and more. 

Grade Lasers

These lasers are a variant of rotary level lasers and are typically used in construction when calculating the amount of rise in a slope or a hill. Depending on the type or brand of grade laser you will have to set the grade manually or it will be able to do it automatically. There are dual and single slope grade lasers, with the primary difference between the two being the number of axes used.
