Especially for craftsmen who always need their short tape ready for action, SOLA has developed the COMPACT model. Due to its handy body made of shockproof ABS plastic, and the practical size, it’s easy to carry along at all times.

Measuring Tolerance

Equipped with a steel tape in EC-accuracy class II, the short tape delivers accurate results, and thanks to the anechoic, abrasion resistant varnish, the measuring results are easy to read.

Accurate Band Brake

The accurate band brake ensures precise measurements. The quality criteria of a band brake must not be neglected – it lets you have utmost confidence on continuous, highly precise measurements to millimetric accuracy.


The sliding end hook of the COMPACT contributes to the high accuracy of the tape. In addition, the notch makes fixing screws or nails easy.
