Empire Level has unveiled the newest versions of its TRUE BLUE Rafter, Framing, and Combination Squares, each one with new scribing and checking features based on customer feedback.

“The launch of these next generation squares demonstrates our commitment to innovation and user-driven product designs that improve the overall layout experience. Each square includes thoughtful new feature improvements and durable construction in a highly precise design,” said Rick Gray, senior VP and GM for Empire Level. “As we move into our 100th year as a company, we’re proud to build upon our rich history of product innovation with these newest solutions, all of which are designed and manufactured in the United States.”

The TRUE BLUE® Hi-Vis Laser Etched Rafter Squares are made from extruded aluminum, and feature permanent, laser etched markings that may be read in any light conditions. New marks include SCRIBE-GUIDE, a notch pattern for marking at 1/2- and 1/4-inch increments. The squares are available in 7” and 12” sizes and range in price from $11.99 to $21.99.

The TRUE BLUE ® Hi-Vis Laser Etched Framing Square also now features permanent laser-etched markings, as well as an ARC-SCRIBE feature, which provides common radiuses for marking windows and door arches. New marks include graduation marks at 1/8”, 1/10”, 1/12”, and 1/16”, as well as conversion tables for rafter and brace cuts. The square is made of anodized aluminum, which will not rust, and is priced at $14.99.

TRUE BLUE® Combination Squares now feature an improved Blade-Lock for faster adjustments and a more secure hold, a Dual-Pitch vial for checking 1-2 degree slopes, and rational head dimension markings. An etched stainless-steel blade and onboard storage for a hardened scriber are also included. The squares are available in 6”, 12”, and 16” sizes and range in price from $8.99 to $14.99.
