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
We manufacture a full durbar non-skid plate on the top surface as usual, PLUS a durbar non–skid plate on the under surface. This not only acts as the new surface in years to come, it also greatly increases the strength and integrity of the weighbridge by almost 50%. Other manufacturers leave the underside open to the elements, or weld a thin plate over the voids.
Modular Weighbridge Systems
The Loadcell mountings and side rail mountings are pre-built in ready for the transformation. The chambers inside the superstructure are fully sealed, and coated with Marine submersible water tight protective coatings, as used in the shipbuilding industry.
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.
