Double Life Span Invertible Deck Design
The Double Life Weighbridge is manufactured first and foremost, to be inverted when the top surface eventually wears. This simple transformation gives it a NEW Surface and doubles its life, over any other weighbridge on the market. In effect, you are getting two weighbridges for the price of one. Patent Number 1113342.8 Not only manufactured from a special re-enforced composite, it is also encased in steel columns. This method allows the Double Life to go into what is known as “Post Tensioning”. When it is eventually inverted a slight strength curve will have been formed, giving the Double Life even more strength.
Most weighbridges are only as good as the welding that holds them together. The Double life is Non-Dependant on welding, as the concrete binds the weighbridge together and encases the welding.
We use a combination of High Grade Granite Composite and steel reinforcing, completely encased in Heavy duty steel columns. The steel structure alone would carry over 100 Tonnes, then we add the concrete. This makes for an incredibly strong structure, believed to be the strongest weighbridge manufactured anywhere. The design has a minimum life span of 50 Years, with standard traffic volume.
Double Life Weighbridges can also be installed onto sloping roadways, up to 1:30 inclines. The deviation can be, Longitudinal, Lateral or both. Special fixings are installed along with the load cells, to maintain equal forces, throughout the weighbridge. This technique, can save thousands of pounds, by eliminating the need for new foundations.
