Dormant / Pit Mount
When floor space is at a premium or you need to move large loads with a fork lift or pallet truck it is a good idea to look at a pit mounted platform, these types of scales are sunk into the ground to make them level with the surrounding area. Platform scales that are designed for pits should ideally have extra strengthening, especially in areas where a fork lift truck is present.
Scalesmart have seen occaisions where a standard floor scale is used as a pit mounted scale to save money, this is a false economy as a standard floor is not strong enough top take the extra loading they typically see in their working life.
If you need a pit scale then it is suggested to choose the correct machine, the pit scales manufactured by Scalesmart have proved to be successful and stand up to high loads from fork lifts and powered pallet trucks.
Its key to note that Scalesmart build floor scales to order, any size or shape can be accomodated to suit customer needs.
