Plate levels offer unparalleled precision when leveling walls and beams. These levels are built from high quality materials and are designed to give you a dead-on accurate reading every time. Trying to get a level reading on a stud can be tricky with a short level as the natural bow of the board can skew your read out. Plate levels are designed to be long enough to span the whole beam, giving you the most accurate reading possible. There's no better level than the Plate level when it comes to making sure long pieces of material are even.
