Interior levelling work is set to get even easier with the UniversalLevel 2 and UniversalLevel 3 cross line lasers from Bosch. The updated range helps to make alignment easy for DIY enthusiasts – thanks to the additional plumb points that the UniversalLevel 2 projects onto the floor and ceiling for example, or with the help of the second vertical line of the UniversalLevel 3, which makes right-angle alignment a piece of cake.

UniversalLevel 2 with plumb points on the floor and ceiling

The UniversalLevel 2 projects a laser cross onto the wall and one plumb point on both the floor and ceiling, allowing the user to transfer precise reference points from floor to ceiling and vice versa. The tool can help DIY enthusiasts accomplish a wide variety of interior fitting jobs – whether you’re carrying out small or large renovation tasks, or projects to make home decorating ideas a reality. Wallpapering, hanging pictures, centering lights above tables, fitting curtain rods, or laying parquet and laminate flooring: The UniversalLevel 2 can assist DIY enthusiasts with all of these jobs. Users can also count its help for large-scale projects, such as installing kitchen units or fitting wall tiles.

UniversalLevel 3 with a second vertical laser line

For challenging interior projects, DIY enthusiasts often need an additional 90 degree reference point in the room. This may be the case for installing shower cubicles at right angles, laying floor tiles, or putting up drywalls, for example. For these applications, the UniversalLevel 3 projects a second vertical laser line in the room, forming an exact 90 degree angle to the first vertical line. Both lines start directly at the tool and together form an additional laser cross on the ceiling, which functions as a plumb point. The UniversalLevel 3 is the first cross line laser from Bosch for DIY enthusiasts that is equipped with this second vertical laser line. Because of this feature, it can help with both horizontal and vertical alignment, and even squaring applications, or with the transfer of plumb points floor to ceiling.

Intuitive and comfortable handling

Both the UniversalLevel 2 and UniversalLevel 3 are intuitive to use. In addition to a sliding on/off switch, both cross line lasers have three different modes, which the user can set by means of the keypad. LED indicators on the tool show whether the cross line laser is projecting a self-leveling laser cross, all lines and plumb points or lines in incline mode. Both tools automatically compensate for irregularities of up to ± 3 degrees (UniversalLevel 3) or ± 4 degrees (UniversalLevel 2) and are self-leveling, meaning that the laser lines are always automatically aligned so as to be precisely horizontal or vertical. Users can, however, deliberately override the self-leveling function so that the lines are projected in incline mode, for example when installing banister handrails or putting diagonal patterns on the wall. Both tools work with accuracy of ± 0.5 millimeters per meter in a working range of 10 meters. Thanks to the 1/4-inch thread, the UniversalLevel 2 and UniversalLevel 3 can also be fitted on a tripod or telescopic rod, both of which are available in the Bosch accessory range.

The UniversalLevel 2 and UniversalLevel 3 are available at retail outlets from now onwards. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT. Subject to change.
