that promote safety
45 years ago, former SUN owner and product engineer Pat Barton developed the first tilt gauge for off road vehicles. The original Lev-o-gage was born. Ever since, we've been designing, manufacturing, and refining a growing line of durable, useful inclinometers, slope meters and industrial levels. Our goal is pretty simple: To improve operator safety by providing valuable information to heavy equipment operators and many others, in a variety of industrial, construction, military and medical fields.
We can customize your products.
Do you need custom-painted hashmarks to show safety/caution/alert zones, in red, yellow, green or any other color? We can do that.
Do you need glow-in-the-dark hashmarks and numerals for low-light situations? We can do that.
Do you need custom-drilled holes? We can do that, too.
Do you need custom graphics, or want your logo imprinted? We're happy to do it!

What is an inclinometer?
Inclinometers go by many names: Tilt gauge, angle indicator, tilt indicator, level, level indicator, level gauge, angle gauge, tilt meter, gradiometer, grade indicator, percent slope meter, ball bank indicator, or clinometer and heel gauge (two common terms in the Marine or sailing industry). They all do one important thing: Measure and display incline, usually in angular degrees, percent slope, or grade, which is typically shown as grade-to-1.
SUN inclinometers are useful in many industrial settings including Agriculture, Aviation, Boring, Construction, Drilling, Engineering, Government, Medicine, Military, Mining, Roads and Transportation.
At Sun Company, we've specialized for 45 years in ball-in-tube inclinometers, also known as analog inclinometers or mechanical inclinometers.
