Calculated Industries Introducing Tools at IBS/NAHB
Construction Master Plus EZ and Laser Dimension Master 130 give builders fast, accurate calculations and measurements
Calculated Industries (CI) is introducing its newest tools for builders at the National Association of Home Builders 2015 International Builders’ show on Jan. 20-23 in Las Vegas.
The Construction Master Plus EZ (CMP EZ) is the newest in Cis’ line of award-winning Construction Master Pro construction math calculators. In addition to 140 built-in calculations, the CMP EZ is a Prompting Calculator. The user presses a building project key and then scrolls through a series of prompts for quantities, measurements, placement, materials, and other possible inputs. After entering the known values, all the available calculations and solutions are displayed. The calculator guides you on a path to solve any construction math problem in seconds. If a measurement changes, you can just scroll back to it, change it, and re-solve the problem.
Basic and advanced functions give answers for both your everyday and more complex construction calculations. The built-in materials key gives you instant quantities, from drywall and roofing, to tile and pavers.
Also being introduced is a new laser measure—the Laser Dimension Master 130. The LDM 130 is a one person laser measuring tool for distances, areas, and volumes. It is easier and faster to use than a tape measure, and more accurate than ultrasonic measures. It measures up to 130 feet with accuracy of 1/8-inch, or better, over the entire range. It has a large, bright, color easy-to-read display.
Distances can be measured in feet-inches, decimal feet, inches or meters. Priced under $100.
