The Multigauge 5500 metal thickness tester has been designed for hands free use when climbing on staging, scaffolding, ladders or when accessing by rope. Whether it’s onboard a ship, on large storage tanks, climbing on top of a road tanker or carrying out inspections underneath a bridge, the 5500 will measure the thickness with ease. The gauge uses multiple echo to ignore coatings up to 6mm thick. It can be mounted onto a waist belt or chest harness when using rope access. The top display ensures the measurements are clearly visible, even in difficult gauging and lighting conditions. A protective leather case is also available.
All gauges are supplied with a 13mm 2.25MHz probe (3 – 250mm measuring range) unless otherwise stated. Other probe options are available. Please contact us for further information.
