Big T, Frazer Designers’ range of tape measures for Essex-based manufacturer Fisco Tools, goes on sale in the UK at the end of this month. Frazer Designers principal consultant Jonathan Knight says the tape measure’s ‘innovative’ features include an internal ‘shock absorber’ to protect the components if the product is dropped, a ‘holster clip’ and a moulded plastic end hook. Already launched in the US market as Big Johnson, export orders for Big T’s 5m and 8m measures are pending to Italy, France, Germany and Sweden.
