To minimise the potential for corrosion to reduce the expected working life all steelwork is are fully hot dip galvanised.
Accuweigh's modular weighbridges consist of two main structural assemblies; the steel deck sections and the centre block assemblies. Adjacent deck sections are connected using the centre block assemblies which also function as the weighbridge end sections.
For significantly increased structural rigidity, the centre block assemblies contain the weighbridge loadcells and mounting hardware to function as the main load bearing points of the weighbridge. This unique design ensures a very strong and robust weighbridge deck that eliminates deflection under heavy loads while also offering a very low profile to minimise access ramp costs.
Accuweigh's steel deck weighbridges are assembled on site requiring the use of a light crane to assist with section placements. The weighbridge can usually be constructed in a single working day with the load cell mounting harware firmly attached to the concrete foundations using structural bolts and fast curing epoxy grout. Weighbridge testing, calibration and certification can then be performed the following day with the weighbridge then immediately made available for trade weighing purposes.
Accuweigh's steel deck weighbridges are available in a variety of deck lengths and configurations as single decks, dual decks and even multi-deck weighbridges. Accuweigh sells, installs and commissions more weighbridges in Australia than any other company and has two dedicated weighbridge manufacturing facilities to cater for all industry needs in weighbridges.
