Accuweigh has released a range of steel deck weighbridges which are assembled with modular sections to allow them to be constructured in varying lengths using common components. To minimise the potential for corrosion that reduces the expected working life of the weighbridge, all steelwork is fully hot dip galvanised.
Accuweigh’s modular steel deck 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 strong and robust weighbridge deck that eliminates deflection under heavy loads, while also offering a 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 hardware 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 steel deck 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.
