Large Platform Weighing Scales & Heavy Duty Platform Scales
Platform weighing scales are versatile. Use them in a range of environments where a standard scale won’t work. Weigh large, cumbersome loads such as animals, pallets, shipping crates, luggage, and more.
Use heavy duty scales to ensure trucks, aeroplanes, and other forms of transport aren’t overloaded. Why is this so vital? Overloading leads to vehicle faults such as mechanical failures and decreased brake performance, potentially causing accidents. It also increases fuel consumption and therefore costs.
Safety and compliance are guaranteed here. All of our large platform weighing scales are sturdy and level, equipped with anti-slip feet. Pallet floor scales have robust wheels and a handle for easy manoeuvring. Some of our platform weighing scales such as the FLP series low profile platform have a chequered surface for extra grip.
When buying a platform weighing scale, consider design and function. Low profile platform scales are fitted with ramps to easily wheel on loads. Heavy duty platform scales are fit for large loads that are easily placed with a forklift. Pallet floor scales are specifically designed in a fork shape to bear their loads evenly.
Our platform floor scales use advanced technology and approved load cells for accurate results. Measure loads quickly and accurately to enhance productivity in your organisation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a platform scale and a hanging scale?
In industry, a hanging scale is another digital scale used to weigh heavy loads. While items are placed on a platform weighing scale at ground level, hanging scales suspend items to weigh them. Hanging scales may be attached to a crane or similar equipment. Heavy duty platform scales are used for solid or packed items. Whereas a hanging scale may be used for bagged items, e.g. a fishing net.
How accurate is a platform weighing scale?
Our platform weighing scales are extremely accurate up to high capacities. This is thanks to digital technology and internal components such as load cells. To maintain accuracy, platform scales should be calibrated regularly. Note that we offer a calibration service in-house to ensure you get accurate results.
What are the different types of platform scales?
The main types of platform scales are as follows:
- Platform floor scales - These are heavy duty scales mounted on a flat surface. They’re multipurpose and suit a range of environments, even the harshest.
- Low profile floor scales - These feature ramps so they make sense in environments where a trolley, cart, or pallet truck is used to transport items.
- Pallet weighing floor scales - These have a U-frame to perfectly fit the beams of pallets. Unlike platform floor scales, they’re not suitable for different or unusual shapes. So they’re most likely to be used in a warehouse that deals mainly in pallets.
