The 30m Fibreglass Measuring Tape has a robust and protective ABS plastic case. A fold-out winding handle makes the tape easy to retract and it also has a hand strap for carrying. The tape is made from reinforced fibreglass which is strong and resistant to stretching. A fold out blade hook on the end of the tape allows it to be anchored securely whilst measuring. Both sides of the tape are marked with durable metric and imperial graduations. The tape is 13mm (1/2") wide.
