Quality Beyond Measure...
At Fairgate Rule, we take pride in the quality, precision, and dependability of each product in our extensive line, from our best-selling L-squares, T-Squares, templates, curves, rules and scales. We start with top-grade materials such as heavy-gauge, tempered aluminum alloy; stainless steel; and tough, crystal-clear acrylic. These are milled and/or cut to our exacting specifications. Then our skilled craftspeople employ precision handwork to ensure measurements are accurately applied to each instrument. When you select Fairgate tools, you are assured of quality materials and workmanship.

Fairgate offers over 350 rules, scales, and other measuring devices in both English and metric versions to satisfy the needs of professionals in the fields of graphic arts, engineering, architecture, fashion design, manufacturing, plumbing, and carpentry. Hobbyists and do-it-yourself enthusiasts will also find a wealth of useful instruments in the Fairgate line.

Specialized operations frequently require non-standard measuring devices. If the tool you need is not already in our huge product line, our engineers and technicians will work with you to design and produce it. Our Experience includes building a 12-foot ruler for a company that folds parachutes and creating a special device for measuring the arc in railroad tracks. You can be confident that no matter how unusual your requirements, Fairgate can provide the custom tool that meets your needs. We believe it is this kind of attention to special needs that has earned us a loyal clientele that includes schools, specialty businesses and multinational corporations such as Avery-Dennison, Bridgestone-Firestone, Delta Faucet, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, IBM, Kelly-Springfield, Kimberly-Clark, Lockheed-Martin, 3M, Mead Paper, and Westinghouse.

Throughout our more than half-century of operation, we have maintained a dedication to precision supported by a rigorous program of quality production checks. The success of this program is evidenced in our less than 3/10's of 1% rate of return on products shipped. We are just as proud of our record of dependability in expediting deliveries. On average, we ship 97% of items ordered from stock within one week.

Premiums, promotions, & gifts

At low additional cost, we can imprint any item in this catalog with your message and logo.
