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.

"Tritex gauges are the best thickness gauges I have used...and they are less expensive than other makes that come close"

"Just a quick line to say that we have been using the 5500 in some gnarly conditions here in Poland....rough steel, hot conditions & a really dusty environment & it is performing excellently"
