We hope our guide to levels helps you make the right decision!
Levels are used in the building & surveying industries to set up level points & check elevations.
Generally, a level consists of a telescope, a level & usually a tripod for mounting.
There are a wide range of different levels that can be used for a variety of different applications, such as:
Deciding you want or need a level is the first step, next you will need to decide whether buying or hiring is best for you. It all depends on what you’ll be using the level for, how often you will use it and how many you may need.
Buying a level outright can be ideal for those customers who know they will be using it regularly, especially as some levels can be relatively inexpensive.
If you only need it for limited use, it would be wise to consider hiring!
Read more about the pros & cons of both buying & hiring in our guide!
There are many different levels available so there is a lot to consider when trying to choose the right one for you. Here are some things to consider:
There are a variety of levels available, all with different qualities suited to specific needs and applications.
Types of levels include:
Dumpy levels, also known as automatic levels are an optical instrument used to set horizontal levels and are a tried and trusted member of any construction team.
The operator must look through the optical eyepiece to measure against a staff or tape measure placed at the point being measured. This site levelling technique is particularly useful to surveyors during site surveys as well as a whole host of other uses within the construction industry.
When operating a dumpy level, you must ensure that the level is securely placed, preferably on a tripod, and that the bubble is level. This can be adjusted using the levelling screws. Next you must sight the instrument by looking through the eyepiece and focusing on the staff or tape measure at your chosen point of measurement.
竞彩258平台A decent dumpy level should auto-level to a certain degree although it is worth checking the instrument to see that this is working as expected.
Our recommended dumpy levels are the Leica NA700 Range which offers high performance at an affordable price. This range is extremely hard wearing in all site conditions. Different magnification levels are available throughout the range to cater for your exact needs.
Winner: Leica NA700 Range
A fantastic range that offers great features at an affordable price. The Leica NA730 Plus, in particular, is considered the most reliable and durable level on the market with 30x telescopic magnification.
A precise level makes use of a parallel plate micrometer which is placed in front of the lens allowing small alterations to the image of the bar-coded staff. This allows for extremely high levels of accuracy.
Precise levels can perform a huge number of surveying jobs including: -
We recommend the Leica NA2 Precise Level. This universal level meets all requirements of precision levelling! We also have all of the optional extras you may require including the Leica GPM3 Parallel Plate Micrometer, the Leica FOK73 Eyepiece, the Leica GPLE2N Nedo Invar Staff and much more.
Winner: Leica NA2 Precise Level
Leica NA2 is a universal automatic level which meets all the requirements of precision levelling even in extreme conditions.
竞彩258平台It is perfect for all surveying task thanks to its high levels of precision and efficiency when doing routine levelling task on building sites and for its accurate geodetic control and engineering projects.
The heavy-duty Leica GST20 Wooden Tripod can be used with the Leica NA2.
A digital level is an instrument that can be used to perform advanced levelling work, automatic height calculations and basic construction work.
竞彩258平台It uses gravity as its reference point and reads bar-code scales from a bar-coded staff to capture extremely accurate readings.
竞彩258平台Measurements from the bar-coded staff are automatically displayed and/or stored for your convenience and for future reference.
We recommend the Leica Sprinter 150M Digital Level - the perfect tool for advanced construction levelling tasks. Store up to 1’000 measurements, download and transfer them for further calculations to Excel® to a PC via USB and much more!
Winner: Leica Sprinter 150M Digital Level
Measurements have never been so easy to perform with the Leica Sprinter 150 - allowing you to perform your job quickly & efficiently, perfect for advanced construction levelling tasks! Optional extras include the Leica GEV267 Data Transfer Cable竞彩258平台 and much more.
