This has become increasingly more important for everyone in the transport industry since the “Duty Of Care” issue was raised.
Multi-Deck Weighbridges have multiple weighing decks positioned so as to enable all axle groups of the truck to be individually weighed during a single weighing transaction.
Each Weighbridge deck has its own digital weight indicator and a summing unit is used to totalise the total weight of all the decks to arrive at an overall vehicle weight. This allows the operator or Weighbridge Software to easily identify overloaded axle groups.
Multi-Deck Weighbridges are available in all Weighbridge designs:
Above Ground Weighbridges
Fully Inground Weighbridges
The Multi-Deck Weighbridges design does increase the initial outlay of the Weighbridge with the requirement of multiple smaller Weighbridge decks, multiple digital weight indicators, a summing unit, more loadcells and more complex testing procedures.
Most companies find the extra initial costs are quickly paid back through the huge potential benefits of increased and optimised payloads as well as protection against overloading fines.
