Construction Laser Levels
SOLA LASERS. Concentrated technology for accurate work.
Our multi-award-winning construction laser range was launched in 2009 and we have been adding to it ever since: From civil engineering to interior fittings, SOLA can provide you with the right laser for every task. Our reliable user-orientated laser technology is integrated in our robust devices. Designed for the harsh environment of a construction site, our construction lasers deliver precise results whatever the conditions.
WHICH TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION LASER EXIST?
The laser point is refracted by a tube lens. Unlike with a point laser, this produces a laser line, creating a precise, highly visible reference point for the user. Individual lines and more complex line panoramas can be projected in this way.
With rotation lasers, the laser point is deflected at a 90° angle by a pentaprism. If the prism is rotated, the laser point creates a pulsed 360° laser line, which can be used for precise leveling and to align objects. Rotation lasers are used when surfaces need to be mapped or a reference level needs to be created. The levels can be created horizontally and vertically. Tilt functions make it possible to measure even the most complex of gradients using one or two axes.
ARE SOLA CONSTRUCTION LASER DEVICES COVERED BY IP PROTECTION?
IP PROTECTION CLASSES
In order to protect the housing and operating elements from dust and water, laser devices are sealed in line with the applicable IP protection classes. SOLA lasers offer the following three IP protection classes:
Protection against dust and dripping water.
Suitable for devices that are mainly used indoors.
Protection against dust and splashes.
For devices that are used both indoors and outdoors.
Dust-tightness and protection against jet water.
The device can be used outdoors in all weathers, and indoors in a dusty environment.
Laser systems are divided into different laser classes to according to how hazardous they are. The laser classes go from 1 (safe) to 4 (hazardous). European standard EN 60825-1 and American standard FDA 1040.10:1.4.97 form the basis for differentiating between laser classes.
SOLA lasers comply with laser class 2 and 2M.
LASER CLASSES ACCORDING TO DIN EN 60825-1:
|1||Accessible laser radiation is harmless|
|1M||Accessible laser radiation is harmless unless viewed with optical instruments (magnifying glass, telescopes)|
|2||Accessible laser radiation in the visible spectrum (400 nm to 700 nm) is harmless when exposure to it is brief|
|2M||As per class 2, unless viewed with optical instruments (magnifying glass, telescopes)|
|3R||Laser radiation can cause injury to the eye|
|3B||Laser radiation can cause injury to the eye, in some cases also the skin|
|4||Laser radiation very hazardous and can cause injury to both the eye and the skin, risk of fire and explosion|
WHICH WAVELENGTHS DO LASERS HAVE?
The wavelength determines the color of visible light. The human eye can detect light in the wavelength range of about 711 nm (red) to 389 nm (violet). As a result, short-wave ultraviolet (UV) light and infrared light are invisible to us.
SOLA laser devices work in a wavelength range from 680 nm (red) to 529 nm (green), making them easily visible to the human eye.
WHAT SETS SOLA GREEN LASERS APART?
REAL GREEN: INSTANTLY NOTICABLE IMPROVEMENT
Green SOLA lasers are equipped with real green diodes. This means that the green laser light is generated directly and losing any radiance. This is highly advantageous over other technologies.
The sensitivity of the eye is not the same for all of the colors (wavelengths) on the light spectrum. The eye is best at perceiving the wavelength of green light.
BRIGHTER AND SHARPER
REAL GREEN technology generates noticeably brighter and higher-contrast laser lines, which are perfect for precise measurements.
REAL GREEN laser technology generates laser lines with significantly less scattering (speckles). The advantage: higher quality laser lines, which make work much easier.
