Hi,

I work for an insurance company as a consultant and I stumbled across this site. I often have to take measurements such as ceiling heights and distances between pipes running at the ceiling.

I know a laser measurer can give me ceiling height easily and accurately. Is there any tool I can use to get horizontal distances between pipes running at the ceiling?

Thanks in advance for the help

The DISTO D3, A5, and A6 will all do what you want. Each of these laser measuring tools includes the Pythagoras function. It allows you to measure distances by triangulation. The type of measurement you'll be doing is very simple with a DISTO.


Just go to www.appraiserdepot.com and check them out. If you have other questions, let me know. We're closed today, but I'll be back in the office on Wednesday.


Happy New Year!

Of course you could also use the fat max and do the math yourself.

Word of warning with either method, don't forget to remove the pipe diameter from your measurements.

Matt is the man when it comes to laser measuring tools. Give him a call on Wednesday. You will be happy you did.

Thanks for the replies. I'll look at the Disto's and probably contact you with questions
