1/10-foot increments (10 series). Zero point is 12 inches from the end of the tape.
Keson Nylon-coated Steel Tape Measures are uniquely break resistant because of a .2mm thickness of permanently bonded nylon which is coated (not sprayed) over a sturdy .13mm steel core center.
Because of the multi-layed construction, these tapes are not only corrosion resistant (even to salt water), but have a life of more than three times that of ordinary steel tape measures. They bend easily to measure curved surfaces. With only a 3/8″ wide blade, the tape is not affected by wind as are wider tapes.
Graduatiosn are permanently legible, beinig printed in 2 colors (black and red) on a snow white covered nylon, over which an easy-to-clean, non-glare vinyl coating has been applied.
