Capaltec Limited is a dynamic new force in the field of novel measurement technologies and products. Our objective is to invent or identify innovations and intellectual property; use our financial and technical expertise to support them through development; and then apply our sales and marketing experience to ensure successful commercialisation. We have an interest in both professional and consumer markets.

Our first revolutionary measurement technology is called HeightLight. It’s a completely new way to measure the height of everyday objects. We invented it and have filed a range of patents based upon it, with more to come later this year. The first device based upon the technology will be launched later this year, and will be followed by a family of devices based on the HeightLight platform. To find out more about this, click here.
