Spectra Precision LT56 Plane Laser


The Spectra Precision® LT56 Universal Laser Layout Tool provides three 360 degree planes of laser light. A horizontal plane and 2 vertical planes 90 degrees apart provide all the reference required for a wide variety of interior applications including wall layout and installation, acoustic ceiling installation, point transfer, cabinet and chair rail installation, tile layout and horizontal and vertical alignment. The automatic self-leveling laser ensures ease of use.

The LT56 is powered by rechargeable lithium–ion batteries that typically can provide a battery life of 25 hours to 45 hours, depending on the number of laser planes used. The universal accessory allows mounting to ceiling grid, various sized tripods, columns and studs. The mount has fine vertical height and horizontal rotation adjustments for quick and easy setups. The HR220 laser receiver can be added to give the LT56 the added versatility of outdoor use.
