Above Ground Weighbridge

Surface mounted or Above Ground weighbridges, as the name suggests, are fitted directly on top of the road.

These bridges are supplied in sections, and can be anything up to 24 metres in length (or split into 2 x 12m decks), and take weights of up to 100 tons. Big enough for most yard applications. Fitted into the main deck are a set of components - load cells, instead of the old levers and counterbalances.

New loadcells are very accurate and hard-wearing, easy to keep clean all our weighbridge can be fitted with many options of loadcells from: Zemic, Keli, Avery, MettlerToledo, PT
depending on site requirements

Surface mounted weighbridges do require ramps on either end so that your vehicles can ride up onto the weighing deck. This means not only is the bridge very long, but will also need a good bit of space beyond this to position yourself for your run up. Because of this, it can be a good idea to fit them near the entrance to your yard.

One of the plus points with above ground installations, is that they are easily taken up, relatively speaking. If you should ever move to a new yard, for example, you can take your weighbridge with you and no pit to backfill/make safe.
