Many of our customers have requested a longer but still easy-to-handle folding rule adapted to the current building standards. We are therefore launching a 240 cm long version in a slender format. 

Iconic through and through

The new unique folding rule is based on our classic from 1883, but has been equipped with two additional sections that make it 240 cm.

Just as the icon from 1883, the new folding rule is made in a traditional way of downy birch and features joints of Swedish steel as well as the iconic red ends.

No need to move the folding rule

An advantage of the new model is that when you make measurements for full-size plasterboards and standard ceiling height, for instance, you don’t have to move the folding rule. You simply reach a little further.

In addition, if you are going to make a measurement of 240 cm, you don’t need a bulky 3-meter folding rule. With our new tool, you can take full-length measures and still work smoothly and efficiently.

Easy to distinguish

A distinct print on the side makes it easy to distinguish the 240 from other folding rules.

The red end

The red end of the Hultafors folding rule has long been the sign of a true pro. Since its invention in 1883 our folding rule has changed how work trousers are sewn. And to this day it’s the craftsman’s first choice for measuring.

When you are a pro. You know.

This is how we make them

In the folding rule factory, in Hultafors Sweden, we make our classic folding rule. The model 59, in downy birch with red painted ends. All parts are made locally by a skilled and efficient workforce.
