Our weighbridges are manufactured to the highest standard at our modern fabrication plant in County Armagh, using stainless steel European loadcells. All weighbridges are supplied and fitted with a weighing indicator suited to your specific needs, an optional printer and a software system relevant to your industry.

Weighbridge Facts

In Ireland/UK a standard articulated truck will have a wheelbase >13.5m – therefore weighbridges are generally 15m x 3m. Abnormally long vehicles such as those with trombone trailers will require >18m x 3m

In Ireland/UK the maximum gross weight for road going vehicles is 44,000kg, therefore weighbridges are generally calibrated up to 50,000kg (sometimes 60,000kg).

Weighbridges can be installed on a slope. GlobeWeigh weighbridges can be installed on an end to end slope (no cross fall) up to 4% – i.e. 600mm (2′) over 15m

Choosing Your Weighbridge

This quick guide explains the advantages of the different types of weighbridges. Decide if your weighbridge will be concrete or steel, and if it will be pit mounted or surface mounted.

Concrete Deck Weighbridge Steel Deck Weighbridge
  • Less expensive than steel
  • Very hard wearing
  • Low maintenance (no painting
  • etc)
  • Lighter structure – easier to lift than concrete
  • Easier to re-site than concrete
  • Faster installation than cast on site concrete
Pit Mounted (flush) Weighbridge Surface (above ground) Weighbridge
  • Shallow pit (500mm) reduces civil engineering costs
  • The new design allows access into the pit for ease of cleaning
  • Is unobtrusive and takes up little room
  • Allows traffic to pass over it in any direction, thus is suitable for sites with restricted access
  • Easily kept clean
  • Relatively inexpensive and simple foundations
  • Vehicles will be positioned on the bridge at all times (i.e. it is unlikely wheels will be off the deck)

We also provide a range of animal weighing systems for the agricultural sector such as Cattle Mart Weighing Systems, Pig Weighers and Multi Animal Weighers.
