Stabila, the world’s most recognised brand of professional measuring equipment, is celebrating 130 years of innovative tools that tradesmen have been counting on since its cutting-edge folding ruler was launched in 1889.
Precision measurement is essential to a range of applications, from DIY to construction, automotive, and even interior design. “Professionals across the board must be able to rely absolutely on the accuracy of their measuring tools. However, this year we have something particularly special for the select few,” Upat National Product Specialist Charl Weber reveals.
To commemorate 130 years of existence across the globe, with 70 in South Africa, Stabila is launching the limited edition 80AU 1889 Series Measuring Kit, consisting of a 1m black spirit level, a 60cm yellow level, a 40cm white level and a 7cm Pocket Pro, which is ideal for checking electric boxes and other small-space items.
The milestone launch starts on 1 March 2019, and Weber adds that collectors should be quick off the mark. “It really is a limited edition, with only certain stores receiving stock.” The kit is aimed not only at collectors who have been purchasing similar commemorative Stabila sets every decade, but is ideal for anyone who needs a full set of levels, from the bricklayer to the electrician. Those fortunate enough to obtain the kit can also purchase a yellow padded protective carry bag for safe and convenient transportation on-site.
“It’s a perfect gift for DIYers or those in the construction industry, whether just starting out or long-time professionals. The 80AU’s precision is unquestionable, with a 0.5 mm accuracy and improved range. It is also made from a thicker aluminium than previous levels, making it more robust,” Weber adds. The collector’s kit makes for a superb corporate gift for everyone, from industry professionals to CEOs.
Built on a history of developing and manufacturing innovative measuring tools, Stabila has gained a global reputation for accuracy and reliability. Uninterrupted success with a variety of technical designs and patents for 130 years has seen Stabila maintain its position as a global market leader in the spirit level sector, combining rules, spirit levels, and measuring tapes.
“Well-established in South Africa, and with the technical backing, distribution and warranty support of Upat, anyone able to obtain the limited-edition 80AU 1889 Series Measuring Kit will be the proud owner of robust, precision tools that meet international standards for a lifetime,” Weber concludes.
