WHAT IS A MAGNETIC LEVEL?
Magnetic spirit levels are – as the name suggests – spirit levels that have one or more magnets fitted to the underside, so that they can be easily attached to metallic surfaces. Depending on the manufacturer, model and length of the magnetic spirit level, up to three vials are fitted for horizontal and vertical measurement.
WHERE ARE MAGNETIC LEVELS USED?
Magnetic spirit levels are used to help set up, align and adjust ferrous structural elements, where workers need to keep both hands free. For example, magnetic spirit levels are used when installing beams in metal and steel construction. Magnetic spirit levels with rare-earth magnets are in demand in this field owing to their extra-strong adhesive force, which enables them to hold securely to the structural element even if there are vibrations. Magnetic spirit levels are also used when erecting steel structures in scaffolding construction. The magnetic spirit level is also a great help for drywall installation as it ensures that wall and ceiling profiles can be accurately aligned.
