Portable Pads Prevent Prosecution
30 March 2006, News release from Griffith-Elder
Prosecutions for overloading of axles on light goods vehicles is becoming common on our roads. A way of preventing this happening is to carry on-board a weighing system to check axle weights are not exceeded while loading.
After research was carried out by Griffith Elder a weighing company with 25 years of experience based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk a decision was made to produce a set of lightweight portable weighpads as a cost effective way for smaller to medium businesses to check weigh their vehicles and abide by the law while travelling around with various consignments differing in weight from job to job.
So the portable low profile 500mm x 300 mm lightweight weighpad was born.
The low profile design allows for the pads to be ramp free by machining a slight incline into the pad which does not compromise the strength and rigidity and allows the user to carry them on-board from site to site effortlessly by only weighing 9kg each!!!
The pad itself has the capacity of 7.5 tonnes and will weigh axles up to 15 tonnes, each set of pads will come with a digital weight indicator and the option of a printer fixed into a self contained carry case for ease of transport.
With the printer option the user will be able to record the individual axle weights and total gross weight of the vehicle with the date and time of the weighing for reference at a later date.
Griffith Elder prides itself with the accuracy of weighings achieved on these weighpads and puts it down to the idea of using rubber feet placed on the four corners of the pads which act as stabilisers making the pads gain stability and in turn can be used on a range of surfaces achieving accurate results.
