Size Matters

The wider the tape measure the greater the sign of quality. Poor quality, narrow ones will lose their shape after a few feet or so when extended. If you do a lot of measuring on your own, or need to be able to reach the ceiling without a ladder then this will impede your work. Do not fear, the CF Fertilisers tape measure, like all things we do, its great quality!


Tape Measure Facts: (which may or may not be true!)


  • On July 14, 1868, New Haven resident Alvin J. Fellows received patent number 79,965 for a tape measure in a circular case with a lock to hold the tape at the desired point.

  • A unique feature prevalent to most tape measures is a small diamond which is embedded every 19.2 inches. It is called black truss marking.

  • The Hook is Supposed to be Loose

  • Tape measures are typically stored rolled in a circle, and sometimes they retract into small containers, and these types of tape measures were originally referred to as ‘spring-click tapes’ and are now commonly called ‘retractable tape measures’.

  • The longest tape measure in the world is gold plated and was made in 1956 by a surveyor and tape-maker, Justus Roe, and it measures 180 metres (600 feet).


Happy Measuring!
