What is a weighbridge?

Made of steel or concrete (or a mixture of the two), a weighbridge is essentially a big set of ‘bathroom scales’ for trucks that connects to a readout (the digital weight indicator) which shows the weight. The system provides for the weighing of goods by vehicle load and allows companies to charge customers by weight of load supplied or delivered. The description is straightforward, but the technology to achieve the function is innovative and highly precise. We operate our own “in house” service department, which offers extensive facilities including, repair, service, maintenance agreements and calibration. Take a look at the services we offer.
