Optical levels, or dumpy levels, are essential pieces of equipment that are used across the construction industry by engineers and surveyors, for a range of general construction applications.
We offer a range of used surveying equipment, featuring the industry’s most respected manufacturers at affordable prices. As an alternative cost-effective solution, we provide a survey equipment hire service for short term or long term rentals.
Optical laser levels are use to establish points along the same horizontal plane. This is essential for the accurate measuring of heights on a construction project. All our dumpy levels are sourced from some of the industry’s biggest names to ensure lasting quality at affordable prices. Accessories such as a tripod allow for even greater accuracy from your dumpy levels, making them ideal for outdoor surveying.
While optical and automatic levels both offer a reliable service, dumpy levels require you to manually adjust your line of site. Automatic levels, on the other hand incorporate an integrated compensator mechanism to do this automatically to high levels of accuracy. Some surveying veterans prefer the old-school approach of dumpy levels, while others favour the reliability of an automatic level.
