Accurate and reliable vehicle weighing
Unlike most of our competitors, we design and build all the key components in the weighbridge measuring chain. This includes the load cells, instrumentation and software. This ensures optimised weighing performance and long-term reliability. Both analogue and digital load cell versions are available. We have also developed technology that allows our weighbridges to be installed on sloping terrain (up to 1:20).
Pit and surface models
We offer both pit-mounted and surface versions (the latter are sometimes referred to as pitless weighbridges), constructed from steel, steel concrete composite and pre-stressed steel. Surface models can be installed with concrete ramps or versatile steel ramps, making it easier to move the weighbridge to a different location. We also offer transportable weighbridges, ideal for construction sites.
The complete weighbridge solutions
Many applications require more than just a simple weighbridge. We provide a wide range of additional equipment and software which form the basis of complete weighbridge systems. Our range of additional equipment includes: driver-operated terminals, card readers, traffic barriers and lights, radiation detection systems and number-plate cameras. The robust designs have an unrivalled longevity and operate in the harshest of environments around the world.
All our products meet the requirements for legal-for-trade weighing as defined in EN45501. We provide a full weighbridge calibration service for all types and makes of weighbridge, supported by a network of engineers.
Our modular weighbridge designs are ideal for installation in confined spaces (e.g underneath silos) and special versions of the Eurodeck and SBPM-SB are designed to fit inside a standard 20ft shipping container for export markets. The complete weighbridge and instrumentation are shipped to site and can then be installed in less than a week by one Weightron engineer, supported by local engineers.
How to choose the right weighbridge for your application
A number of factors should be considered when choosing your weighbridge – review our Caveat emptor guide and How to choose the right weighbridge in the technical weighing documents download section for a quick guide.
Note: The choice for a particular application will depend on factors including maximum vehicle sizes and weights, available space, usage and, of course, budget. Most weighbridges are operated in a drive-through manner. In other words the vehicles drive on at one end and off at the other. However in applications where space is at a premium, vehicles may go ‘on and off’ from the same end. For plants where vehicles are weighed in and out, the obvious choice is to operate two separate weighbridges. Not only does this streamline traffic flow, but it also gives the opportunity to service one bridge whilst keeping the other operational. However this is clearly a more expensive option and in many applications one weighbridge is sufficient.
If space is restricted, we can install a single ended weighbridge which incorporates a special stop end, complete with barriers if required.
Bespoke sizes and finishes
Please note that although we offer a wide range of standard weighbridge sizes, we can build special sizes to suit your application (metric and imperial). These are ideal for replacing existing electro-mechanical pit weighbridges. We have developed special load cell mounting hardware assemblies that fit in the pits to ensure the new weighbridge deck sits level with the ground. This removes the need for unnecessary civil engineering work to convert the existing pit.
If required we can supply special weighbridges with a galvanised finish or special marine paint.Bespoke weighbridges
Weigh Bar upgrade
Weightron have developed patent-pending technology to upgrade Avery Weigh-Tronix Bridgemont weighbridges from Weigh Bars to CPR-M and CPD-M stainless steel canister load cells. Find out more>>
Hazardous area weighbridges
For hazardous areas we can supply ATEX certified weighbridges. The load cells are approved for use in zones 1 & 2, 21 & 22 – gases and dusts. For gas environments the weighbridge decks can have ventilation holes to prevent the build-up of hazardous material beneath the bridges.
We work closely with the UK’s leading wheel wash equipment manufacturer Wheel Wash Ltd. Wheelwash provide systems that clean the wheels of site vehicles and machinery, preventing the spread of dirt and debris from construction sites onto public highways. Wheel wash systems are often combined with weighbridges – please contact us for further information.
