Trimble Launches New Interior Construction Laser Tool

By CIOReview | Friday, June 26, 2015

SUNNYVALE, CA: Trimble, a supplier of precision tools and solutions to the construction and surveying market introduces the Spectra Precision LT58 Laser tool. The compact, lightweight and easy to use tool is a new line laser for interior construction.

The Spectra Precision LT58 Laser Tool produces an automatic self- leveling laser that projects three 360 degree planes of ultra- bright laser light. A bright green laser beam is produced in the horizontal plane and is intersected by two vertical red laser planes that are spaced 90 degrees apart. This feature provides references for interior layout tasks such as wall layout and installation, point transfer, finish carpentry, tile layout, and horizontal and vertical alignment. 

The LT58 which is wall mountable comes along with a package that includes a universal mounting accessory. This mounting accessory has fine vertical height and horizontal rotation adjustments that allows mounting to various sized ceiling tracks.

Unlike the usual disposable alkaline batteries, the tool is powered by a lithium-ion which comes with a rechargeable battery with a battery life of 19 hours. The precision tool is also housed in a tough overmold to withstand the construction environment’s tenacity.

"We have tested the LT58 with multiple interior contractors and on many jobsites and have consistently found this tool to be the go-to ceiling laser. With its bright green horizontal line, compact form factor and easy setup, contractors were using the LT58 no matter what other lasers were on the site," says Mike Bank, GM, Trimble Precision Tools Business.
