SmartTool by MD Building Products
A level slope measuring device that reports measurements in degree, percent and per-foot increments. This is an excellent field tool (we use the 24"-fits in a carry-on bag) that will verify proper run (longitudinal) and cross slopes at parking stalls, access aisles, accessible routes of travel, ramp surfaces, etc.

A spiral-bound 3.5" x 8" field reference manual containing the full text and graphics from the Texas Accessibility Standards. A great field item used for quick reference.

Door Pressure Gauge
We use this device to measure the force requirements for doors and controls and operating mechanisms. Many find that the device with the hook on the end is preferred (for pulling device controls).
