ABOUT THIS CATEGORY

Measuring tapes or tape measures are long flexible rulers used to measure linear distance. They usually consist of a long metal strip called tape or blade with measurement markings and a hook at the tip for anchoring in materials while measuring. These tapes retract and coil into a case for portability and to protect them from damage. These tape measures are available in various lengths and are commonly used in measuring materials in industrial, commercial, and domestic applications.
