Comparing Pipe Lasers: What You Need to Know

Comparing Pipe Lasers: What You Need to Know

Welcome to the world of Pipe Lasers!

Here at Laserman, we have put together a comparison of our favourite Pipe Lasers, so that our customers can compare, and choose the right laser for them!
Firstly, let us start with some background information!

A pipe laser is a sophisticated construction tool used primarily in civil engineering and construction to ensure precise alignment and grade control for installing pipes, sewers, and other underground utilities. It is a type of laser level that provides accurate measurements over long distances, making it indispensable for projects that involve laying pipes on a consistent slope or grade.

Pipe lasers consist of a robust housing, often made of durable materials to withstand the rigours of construction sites. They are designed to be mounted on a tripod or directly inside a pipe using specially designed accessories. The laser emits a highly visible beam of light that travels along the pipe's axis or horizontal plane. The pipe laser can be precisely levelled and aligned, making it an excellent tool for maintaining consistent elevations over long distances.


Key features of pipe lasers include:

  1. Remote Control: Most pipe lasers come with remote control functionality, allowing operators to make adjustments to the laser's alignment and grade without physically accessing the unit.

  2. Grade Setting: Pipe lasers enable users to set specific grades or slopes, ensuring that pipes are laid at the desired angle for proper water flow or drainage.

  3. Automatic Levelling: These lasers often incorporate self-levelling technology, which ensures that the laser beam remains horizontal even if the unit is slightly out of level. This feature saves time and effort in setting up the equipment.

  4. Laser Range: Pipe lasers typically have a long laser range, which means they can project a visible beam over substantial distances, often exceeding 500 feet (150 meters) or more.

  5. Durability: Construction sites can be harsh environments, so pipe lasers are designed to be rugged and weather-resistant to withstand dust, moisture, and rough handling.

Overall, pipe lasers are invaluable tools in modern construction, improving efficiency, accuracy, and safety when laying pipes and utilities for various civil engineering projects. They play a crucial role in creating sustainable and reliable infrastructure for communities worldwide.
