Tape Measures

Whether you’re a DIY enthusiast or a seasoned tradesperson, you’ll need a solid, hardwearing tape measure you can rely on to give you accurate results. Made with a flexible metal ribbon that is marked with metric and/or imperial dimensions, tape measures can be stretched out and retracted with ease.

Available in a range of lengths, our range of tape measures are designed to withstand the inevitable knocks and bangs that come with working in construction environments. Look out for non-slip grip pads, locking mechanisms, bump-stop protection and wrist straps to make taking measurements that much easier. You’ll find a selection of great tape measures right here at ToolStore UK from leading brands such as Milwaukee, Stanley and Ox Tools.

Tape Measures

How long are tape measures?

The length of the tape measure ribbon is perhaps the most important factor to consider when it comes to choosing a tape measure. If it’s too short, it quite simply won't do the job.

Our self-adhesive tape measures start at 3.5 metres, perfect for smaller woodworking projects. For jobs around the home, like hanging picture frames or measuring cabinets, a small 5 metre pocket tape measure may be enough. But if you’re looking for something more substantial, we offer tape measures that extend to an impressive 8 metres — ideal for large projects. Our tape measures also come in lengths of 5 metres, 5.5 metres and 7.5 metres.

How accurate are tape measures?

A tape measure’s accuracy is determined by standards set out by the European Committee, with three classes available — EC Class I, EC Class 2 and EC Class 3. EC Class I are the most accurate tape measures on the market and are perfect for professional work where precision is essential. However, they do tend to be slightly more expensive.

What are the different types of tape measures?

Tape measures are simple but essential tools that are used for a wide variety of tasks. Whether you’re looking for a heavy-duty, professional tape measure or something more cheap and cheerful, ToolStore UK have a wide range to suit your needs. There are a number of different measuring tools for you to choose from and the type you need will depend on what you intend to use it for.

Pocket tape measures

With measuring ribbons ranging from 5 metres to 8 metres, pocket tape measures fit easily in your pocket — keeping them handy at the moment you need them. The ribbon retracts and curls up inside the tape measure, keeping it compact and easy to store.

Auto-lock tape measures

Tape measures with an auto-lock function lock into place, temporarily preventing them from retracting. The extended ribbon stays locked in place until the button is pressed, where it can retract back into the tape measure.

Magnetic tape measures

Magnetic tape measures are becoming more and more popular. Magnets at the end of the ribbon are strong enough to ‘stick’ to ferrous materials, making them extremely convenient as you won’t need a second pair of hands to help you out while you measure.

Self-adhesive tape measures

Kreg’s self-adhesive metric tape features a self-adhesive backing and fit snugly into the indentation on the top side of the Kreg Top Trak and Heavy-Duty Trak. Metallic tape is highly scuff-resistant and can be trimmed to the required length with scissors.

Cheap tape measures

For low cost, budget tape measures that don’t sacrifice on quality, consider a no-frills tape measure. These are particularly useful if you constantly damage or lose your measuring tapes and can't justify paying for a professional-grade tool!

Laser rangefinders

Laser rangefinders, also known as laser tape measures, use a laser to accurately measure long distances. They’re great if you’re working alone and are incredibly simple to use. They come in various accuracy levels and working ranges.

Tape measure holders

Are you always misplacing your tape measure? Or does the apprentice keep wondering off with yours? Keep your tape measure always handy with our wide selection of tape measure holders and pouches, providing somewhere safe and secure for you to keep it while you work.

Sawing accessories

If you’re looking for accurate measurements while you’re sawing, check out our wide range of sawing accessories. We have straight edge guides to crosscut stations, circular guides to Trak & Stop systems to ensure you get the accuracy you require.
