Relatively cost-effective and easier to install, above ground weighbridges (aka. surface mounted) are the most commonly installed type of weighbridge that we design, manufacture and install. Well-suited to temporary sites or where portability is a pre-requisite, above ground weighbridges require minimal foundation work and the least amount of site preparation prior to construction. They are perfect for weighing rigid trucks and semi-trailers with deck lengths from 9 meters to 36+ meters..
Made in Australia. Since 1857.
Through our heritage brand, Ultrahawke, we have a long and proud history of manufacturing weighbridges of all kinds for over 160 years. We design and manufacture every weigh-in-motion weighbridge we sell, custom fit and bespoke to our customer requirements. With dozens of bespoke, weigh-in-motion weighbridges manufactured, we are proudly Australia’s premier weighbridge manufacturer and supplier. Our weighbridges are engineered to suit the Australian duty cycle and demands of Australian heavy goods vehicle fleet. This means that they are not easily subject to issues such as metal fatigue and weld fractures on the beams, which significantly reduce the device’s working life.
About Above Ground Weighbridges
With above-ground weighbridges, it’s important to consider the space available on-site, as an above-ground weighbridge will occupy more surface area than of any type of weighbridge. Entry and exit ramps of at least 5 meter in length and 1 meter “clear-spaces” along both sides of the weighbridge deck must be incorporated into your design. Diverseco designs and manufactures above-ground weighbridges in single deck, twin deck or multi-deck configurations to meet customer specific requirements. Unlike imported products, Diverseco’s superior quality, Australian made above-ground weighbridges are custom built to meet your exact requirements and are engineered to suit the Australian duty cycle and demands of Australian heavy goods vehicle fleet. This means that they are not easily subject to issues such metal fatigue and weld fractures on the beams, which significantly reduces the device’s working life.
Turn Your Weighbridge Into An Operator-Free System
Through installing a Driver Control System (DCS) into your weighbridge, you can export all the necessary weighing data to an un-manned DCS that will automatically provide you a ticket with the information. Additionally, these systems can integrate into your existing ERP to provide enhanced Chain of Responsibility accountability..
