The EuroDeck – world-beating Weighbridge Technology
The IsoDeck represents a dynamic new concept in weighbridge design. Based on tried and tested 'Orthotropic Technology', utilized in thousands of road and rail bridges worldwide, the fully welded steel structure offers exceptional strength and durability. The IsoDeck is the combination of significant manufacturing investment, together with engineering know-how from the Bilanciai Group Technology Centre based in Modena, Italy.
Available in both pit and surface mounted versions up to 18 meters in length and 60-tonne capacity, the IsoDeck provides a very cost-effective solution for a wide range of applications. A comprehensive family of instrumentation, peripheral equipment, and dedicated software packages further extends its capabilities.

The EuroDeck is constructed from pre-formed longitudinal trapezoidal steel beams. These are continuously welded to the tough Durbar plate top deck using automatic welding procedures, which form an uninterrupted seam. Front, back, and side plates complete the structure, ensuring the inside of the folded beams are fully sealed from the environment.
The design ensures there are no welds in the areas of maximum stress, thereby minimizing the possibility of metal fatigue in the structure.
The complete weighbridge structure is shot-blasted and then treated with proprietary surface coatings to prevent corrosion. The integrated design ensures there are no traps for water or build-up of debris, whilst the load cell mounting arrangements allow easy access from the top of the weighbridge for servicing.
The EuroDeck is fitted with Globeweigh's CPR stainless steel analog load cells as standard. Robust load cell mounting assemblies, together with the integral end and side stops, ensure optimum load introduction and long-term accuracy. Load cell access is easily achieved through removable top plates in the deck.
As an optional extra, the EuroDeck can be installed with our CPD digital load cells, fitted with rodent-proof cable.
