Leica Geosystems has announced that its DISTO Tape handheld laser distance measuring tools are now available nationwide through over 700 Lowe's building supply stores.

The DISTO Tape is a lightweight handheld device that uses visible laser beams to make fast, easy measurements of distance, area and volume, with 1/8-inch (3-mm) accuracy, at ranges up to 300 feet (100 meters), indoors or outdoors.

The DISTO Tape is being featured in the Lowe's Tool World department as part of a major initiative focused on productivity improvements with laser tools. Leica Geosystems has designed a new demonstration point-of-purchase (POP) display and packaging design for the Lowe's stores, and is providing sales training for Lowe's Tool World store personnel.
