Access to the loadcells for servicing or cleaning is by large access hatches built into the weighing surface of the metal weighbridge decks.
- The main benefit of these weighbridges is that they aren't classed as a restricted space and don't require access permits, stand-by personnel and air quality checks before servicing or cleaning is performed and also doesn't need clear space either side of the weighbridge.
- Like an in-ground weighbridge, it is ideal for sites with limited space or that has shared weighing and traffic areas.
- Budget wise, it is nearly as expensive as a full pit weighbridge as the access hatches on the weighbridge deck require full reinforcing as they form a part of the weighing surface the truck wheels pass over.
- The weighbridge foundations usually include raised kerbing along both sides of the weighbridge deck to ensure the vehicle to be weighed can only enter and leave along the weighbridge axis, but exemptions can usually be obtained from the state governing authority to allow a completely flat hardstand where required.
