Why entrepreneur Charley Kish created the Promeasure tool
Charley Kish was having a total nightmare. And it was one a lot of us have experienced. He had a project that needed a lot of measurements and things were not going well.
“I had brought in some builders to renovate my house. Every day was a struggle. Hardly any of the rooms are a normal square design. To work out how many tiles they needed they measured again and again. They calculated it and I they were wrong on every room.”
Time and again these mistakes were made, causing the project to go over time and over budget. The incident inspired Charley to find the perfect solution and that is why Charley is the creator of Promeasure, a revolutionary tool designed for the construction and interior design industries as well as for DIY enthusiasts.
“The roofer climbed up on the roof and told me the amount of roof tiles I needed and was completely wrong and he cracked my gutter in the process so then he needed to measure it. His mate had to hold a piece of wood to stop the laser from his measurer at the correct point. Both of them were three floors up on two ladders. I thought: ‘There must be a quicker, cheaper and safer way to do this.’”
One day Charley was in his local and decided to make a list of all the things he would want in a measuring tool. The list turned into a sketch on a scrap of paper. Charley worked with his team for months to turn the all-in-one measuring tool he had in his mind from dream into reality and the Promeasure was born.
“I saw the need for a point-to-point measuring laser, meaning when it comes to working out the dimensions of a room, you can calculate the total CBM, measuring the width, length and height. I knew it needed to connect to a phone app so it could save all of the measurements.”
The features are too numerous to name here but they include such highlights as a laser with 60-metre range, a roller-wheel sensor, tilt sensor, voice broadcasting plus point-to-point, continuous, volume and even Pythagorean measurement capabilities.
Having received very positive feedback from professionals, Charley envisions the Promeasure as a time-saving essential for the kit of every builder and DIYer. Perhaps, also a life-saving essential too. The construction is one of the worst industries for workplace fatalities and serious accidents and top of the list of causes is ‘fall from a height’, according to the RoHS.
“Falls from ladders whilst doing work at home are also a lot higher than they should be. Promeasure has so much to offer but to me, the safety aspect is one of the best things.”
The Promeasure certainly has a lot to offer and it retails for a cheaper price than equivalent products that don’t offer the amount of features the Promeasure possesses. Charley’s dream is now a reality and let’s hope his invention can change things for the better.
Promeasure will be available from February for £300 from https://promeasure.co.uk/
