We all know the start of a perfect installation begins with a perfect window measurement. Without the right measurements, even the most beautiful window treatment will fail on installation day. Today there is a high-tech solution that has become more affordable for the window coverings professional and if used properly, can display the most accurate measuring results possible.

The Disto D2 is the latest version of the highly accurate laser measuring device by Leica. It measure in inches and fractions - up to 1/32nd of an inch and has an accuracy level of 1/16th of an inch in a distance of 330ft. It records up to 10 measurements in memory so you can measure the width and length and never worry about forgetting what you just measured.

The bluetooth version is highly recommend as it can prevent the problem of manually recording the wrong numbers. Bluetooth connects to the Disto sketch app on both apple and android devices and allows you to snap a photo of the window, take a measurement with the D2, then paste the measurement on the photo with a swipe of your finger. It works with both smartphones and tablets and even records the date/time and geo location in case you forget to record the customer’s name. Once you try this modern method of measuring, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it.
