THE INTELLIGENT POWERHOUSE

There are normal magnetic spirit levels, and then there is the BIG REDM magnetic box-profile spirit level. This powerhouse isn’t just strong – it is smart as well. It provides the user with impressive advantages thanks to an entirely new lateral magnet installation method.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • As the magnets are inserted into the box profile laterally, the measuring surface is entirely smooth, is easy to clean and allows for clean and precise work.
  • The magnets will not disengage or become damaged by a rise in temperature or vibrations.
  • The extra strong neodymium magnets stop the spirit level from slipping when measuring and allow for hands-free operation, meaning tasks such as aligning and adjusting metal posts or beams become easier.
  • The magnets guarantee a strong hold, even on pipes and painted or curved steelwork components.
  • The BIG REDM magnetic spirit level can withstand heavy loads at building sites due to its exceptionally strong profile. 

PRO TOOL INNOVATION AWARD WINNER 2022

SOLA received the Pro Tool Innovation Award 2022 for the BIG REDM spirit levels with lateral magnet installation in the hand tools category. Here's what the Pro Tool Innovation Awards judges had to say about the BIG REDM magnetic spirit levels:

"SOLA made a big improvement to magnetic levels by reimagining the magnets’ installation. Going in laterally instead of installing through the bottom, the base has an uninterrupted surface. It’s easier to clean off metal shavings that stick to the magnets and doesn’t produce build-up around the magnet seams the way other levels can. At the end of the day, you can work more accurately with less risk of damaging finished workpieces."

USING THE NEW MAGNETIC SPIRIT LEVEL BIG REDM

SMOOTH, CLEAN MEASURING SURFACE

The magnets’ lateral installation into the profile creates an entirely smooth measuring surface for precise and clean measurement results. The smooth surface makes the spirit level easy to clean, minimises the chances of scratches and prevents injuries caused by metal particles which adhere to the magnets.

OUTSTANDING HOLDING POWER

The extra strong neodymium magnets mean that the BIG REDM magnetic spirit level holds firmly to the object that is to be aligned, regardless of whether it is positioned vertically or horizontally. This means that tradespeople and DIYers have both hands free to adjust the component in question, which may be a metal profile or a steel structure.

The magnetic spirit level BIG REDM guarantees a strong hold, even on pipes and painted or curved steelwork components, thanks to the extra strong neodymium magnets.

STABILITY YOU CAN RELY ON

The magnetic spirit level is an essential tool for drywall installation as it ensures the precise alignment of wall and ceiling profiles. The powerful magnetic force means that the spirit level holds firmly to the profile, even if there are vibrations.

Heat does not affect the reliability of the SOLA magnetic spirit levels either. The lateral installation method means that it is not possible for the magnets to disengage or become damaged if the temperature rises.

MAXIMUM PRECISION

The BIG REDM also boasts the same outstanding features as the BIG RED box-profile spirit level without magnets

  • Better, faster and more accurate reading thanks to the patented FOCUS vials
  • Break-resistant acrylic block vials with magnifying lens (+60%) and a 30-year guarantee against leakage
  • Better readability in dim light through an optimised luminous backing
  • Highest measuring accuracy in standard and inverted position
  • Extra strong aluminium profile with reinforcing ribs for maximum stability
  • Shock-absorbing 2-c end caps provide optimum protection against damage
