We specialise in weighbridges, axle weigh pads and axle weighers. Using our scales will get you accurate results that you can trust.
Weighbridges For Heavy Loads
We specialize in weighbridges (also known as truck scales). These are large weighing scales used for weighing heavy loads such as goods on trucks or shipping containers. Weighbridges from Gravitation are the ideal products on the market when it comes to accurately measuring large vehicles.
Weighbridges are designed to sit over a pit, using mechanical methods and balance scales to weigh the vehicles. Our weighbridges use accurate load cells for a pitless scale and far more precise measurement of data. Load cells are at the cutting edge of weighing technology.
Use weighbridge software in conjunction with our products to process the data and easily transfer it between existing databases, making the data quick to access and simple for operators to use.
All load-bearing vehicles have a limit to how heavy a load of goods can be. This is not only a structural requirement for the truck itself but also a legal requirement.
It's important for both you and your goods to be safe whilst on the road - so why not get your vehicle weighed using one of our state-of-the-art scales?
Axle Weigh Pads For Portability
If you need an accurate measurement scale that is easily portable, then we have just what you are looking for.
Our Axle weigh pads come in a variety of lengths and thicknesses. We even have touch screen options for the technology enthusiasts out there, and wireless connectivity - ensuring quick results.
All of our pads are crafted from high-grade materials that are durable and robust. This means that you can get the job done without worrying about the scale malfunctioning or breaking.
Having a poorly balanced axle can create some serious health and safety risks for you, your passengers, and your load. Make sure everyone is safe - purchase a weigh pad from Gravitation today.
Axle Weigher For High Accuracy
When knowing the exact weight of your load is necessary, you can't go wrong with one of the high-quality axle weighers we stock here at Gravitation.
Our axle weighers are built to handle extreme loads and use cutting-edge technology that allows for dynamic weight measurement.
Our weighers are dust and waterproof so you can keep working no matter what. Constructed out of sheet steel and welded steel to give you the highest grade of quality possible.
The axle weighers we stock are built to be inserted into the ground - ideally, into a concrete fitting.
Using a weigher can make shipping and transport far quicker and easier for your business. Saving you time and money.
What is the purpose of a vehicle weighing system?
The purpose of a weighing scale for vehicles is to get a precise weight measurement of the vehicle and its goods. This will inform how much tax you'll pay on your goods - an accurate reading is also integral in keeping you and your goods safe.
How much weight can a weighbridge accommodate?
This would depend on the type of weighbridge, as well as how long and wide it is. A weighbridge for a single trailer that's around 16m long should have a maximum capacity of roughly 80-100 tonnes.
Which weighing scales are best to use?
It really depends on what works best for you - a weighbridge, axle weigh pads, and a weight indicator all have different advantages and disadvantages.
You should consider how much you will be transporting, your vehicle, and your specific needs. If you need any help deciding, contact our team for advice.
Are there any disadvantages to a weighing system?
It depends on the system you use. With a weighbridge or scale, you are limited mostly by your space.
Weighbridges, in particular, are very large to accommodate large trucks, whereas if you're just weighing cars day in, day out, then something like a pad scale might be more appropriate.
