Wheel and Axle Weighing Systems

Weigh pads are used to determine the individual axle weights and total gross weight of any type of vehicle. An axle weigh pad system typically consists of one pair of 20 ton portable weigh pads weighing in 5kg increments and a weigh indicator with printer. Axle weigh pads are generally used to determine if a vehicle is within the legal weight limits for travelling on UK roads. If a vehicle is found to exceed the maximum legal axle weight or total gross weight then the driver may be issues with a fixed penalty notice or reported for prosecution.
