How Direct Reading/True Elevation Grade Rods work:
  • Direct Reading, or True Elevation (also known as Lenker style) is a Grade Rod with a moveable tape face allowing you to set the actual benchmark elevation, or any elevation, above or below the bench into the rod.
  • The actual true elevation above sea level is read on these rods, thus eliminating errors caused by adding or subtracting.
  • Since no math is involved, grade shots are much faster than conventional style rods.
  • On most jobsites, the bench elevation is typically established by survey, and all elevations on that project are above that or below primary bench elevation.
*Note: Laser Detector Brackets Sold Separately Here.
