Why do I need to use a laser level?

There are two types of leveling (laser level) - prismatic and rotary.Prism is very easy to use, but the measurement range - about 20 meters, so they are only suitable for domestic use.Rotary are much more expensive as theirs distance can reach more than 100 meters, so they are often used in construction work.

If you understand how to properly use a laser level, it is possible to equalize any surface quality.The device is mounted on a tripod, and you need to configure it manually or wait until he established himself.There pendulum and electronic leveling instruments;one stops flashing, and other foods - this means that you can get to work.

On the surface you want to align, there should be a line, a point or crosshairs - depending on the device.If the appliance must be aligned manually, as in the other levels, it has an air bubble.You must manually configure the device so that the bubble has moved to the center.If it is self-leveling level, after installation on a tripod, he ceases to fluctuate, and there is vertical and horizontal laser line on the wall.

If the appliance is installed in the correct location, the line will be visible not only on the wall, but also on the floor and the ceiling.It is especially important for builders intersection of the vertical and horizontal lines.This device is often used by tilers, which is very important to lay the tiles on the line to horizontal and vertical lines were strictly at an angle of 90 degrees.
