The Leica NA532 level received an iF Design Award for product design.
For more than 60 years, the iF Design Award has been recognized the world over as a label of design excellence. The award is one of the worldwide leading design awards.
The newly-released Leica NA532 level has received an iF Design Award 2016. The Leica NA532 level was entered in the product discipline for the industry/skilled trades category.
“The NA532 clearly differentiates in the level market. It has a unique design and colour concept. Hereby, it does not lose its origin: the Leica NA700 Series,” Stan Maes, product designer. “The dynamic design and the compact body underline the performance and represent the quality of the Leica Geosystems brand. The optimized ergonomics of the control knobs will support every user to provide best measurement results.”
The number of competitors was significant: the international high-profile jury assessed more than 5,000 entries from 53 countries in order to determine who would receive this coveted seal of excellence.
“It is an honor to earn this award. This iF Award confirms the aim of our concept and our commitment to quality and ergonomics.The new Leica NA500 Series provides the user with the best reliability, accuracy and quality. The NA500 Series has a rugged design based on the expertise of the Leica NA levels experts,” said Matthias Raunhardt, Leica Geosystems project manager. “This durable design and the high quality characteristics of the NA500 Series make it best in its class and enable it to overcome all levelling challenges. Even under the harshest site conditions like rain and dust, the NA500 Series levels always provide accurate levelling results.”
