More reach with Stanley’s FatMax 25-ft, 35-ft tapes
By Renée Francoeur
November 11, 2015 – Stanley has introduced its FatMax Premium 25-ft and 35-ft. tape rules with 13 ft standout for greater reach and detachable hook for more convenient measuring.
This marks the world’s first tape measures with up to 13 ft standout and a detachable hook, Stanley says.
The tape rules are sold with a separate, over-sized hook attachment that can be added for framing applications or removed for standard applications. The detachable hook also slides into a small slot on the rule for storage.
The new FatMax also features an Air-Lock that acts as a shock absorber to protect the tape’s slide lock when dropped. When the FatMax tape rules are dropped the Air-Lock will flex (due to the hole in the slide lock) and absorb the impact.
The FatMax blades are coated in Mylar and features BladeArmor coating for durability and 10 times longer blade life, according to Stanley.
