Empire Level has introduced the next generation of its True Blue Rafter, Framing, and Combination squares. The new squares are designed with an array of best-in-class enhancements, such as permanent laser etched markings and advanced scribing features, for maximum life and accuracy.

“The launch of these next generation squares demonstrates our commitment to innovation and user-driven product designs that improve the overall layout experience. Each square includes thoughtful new feature improvements and durable construction in a highly precise design,” said Rick Gray, senior vice president and general manager of Empire Level. “As we move into our 100th year as a company, we’re proud to build upon our rich history of product innovation with these newest solutions, all of which are designed and manufactured in the United States.”

The next generation 7” and 12” High-Visibility Laser Etched Rafter Squares feature Scribe-Guide, a uniquely designed scribe notch pattern for marking at ½ and ¼” increments. Permanent laser etched markings provide superior readability in any light condition, and a 15% wider heel than other rafter squares on the market which allows for better hold and stability on materials during marking and cutting applications. The Rafter Squares are produced using an extruded aluminum design which provides superior durability when compared to other rafter squares available today.

The next generation Laser Etched Framing Square features Arc-Scribe, a new-to-world feature that provides common radiuses for marking window and door arches. The square is also designed with permanent laser etched markings for superior readability in any light condition, graduation marks at 1/8”, 1/10”, 1/12”, and 1/16”, and convenient conversion tables for common rafter and brace cuts.  In addition, the square is made of lightweight anodized aluminum which will not rust.

The next generation 6”, 12”, and 16” True Blue Combination Squares are redesigned with an improved Blade-Lock™ for faster adjustments and a more secure hold, a Dual-Pitch vial for checking 1 and 2-degree slope, and rational head dimensions for quick checks of common dimensions; this combination of features makes them the most versatile and easy-to-use combinations squares on the market. They also feature an etched stainless-steel blade and onboard storage for a hardened scriber.

Based in Mukwonago, Wis., Empire products are made in the United States. The company sells its products in over 50 countries worldwide.
