    Measuring and estimating made simple Officially established in 2010, QuickScale is an award winning programme designed for taking areas and measurements off pdf drawings. Simple, user friendly and competitively priced, the system was created for those who work from home with limited PC knowledge or with no access to IT departments.

    It was originally invented for the needs of the building and construction industry, but, over the years has become extremely popular with ship building and marine insurance, event planning, CCTV and communications – any business that would calculate

    areas and measurements from a pdf drawing or photograph.

    In previous years, drawings were posted out to the subcontractor and measured with a scale rule. Today, drawings are emailed as a pdf and are not always to scale or don’t have

    any scale at all. They have to be sent to a printer or 3rd party to have them printed to scale and this happens every time the drawings are revised or amended. With QuickScale, you simply open the pdf in QuickScale and click on the points and corners of the areas and dimensions to calculate them.

    For more information on QuickScale and how it can benefit you, contact the company on: +44 (0)7791 550167, email: [email protected] or visit the website at:

    Rungbuddy Limited has highlighted an accident black spot at the transition point on extension ladders, and with an OSHA report showing death has occurred at this point. Rungbuddy has patented a Safety Rung to widen the first single rung down, allowing a safer angle of descent. The foot gains over 100% more landing space at this transition point eliminating that ‘front of foot connection.’ For ladders of 350mm (13 ¾inch) and 452mm (18 inch) widths, a reverse screw clamp holds it securely in place, the toggle bar stays in one position, it does not protrude from the unit. As a plus, Rungbuddy Safety Rungs have the added ability of being used as a comfort platform, able to fit to any shaped rung on any ladder, even in various positions between stiles. A press button spring loaded Universal model is also now available, able to fit all ladders up to 482mm (19ins) wide.
