FULLY-INGROUND WEIGHBRIDGES

Fully Inground Weighbridge

Fully Inground Weighbridge Description

The fully inground weighbridge design is a design where the foundation and deck is cut in to the ground (similar to the semi-inground design). The fully inground design, however, typically has a much deeper pit and the entire deck's top surface is at ground level. There is no part of the deck that extends above ground level.

The design is commonly used for installing a weighbridge in a large driveway or pavement area where traffic can drive from one side of the weighbridge to the other without hindrance, providing the particular state's Trade Measurement Authority does not require kerbing to prevent a vehicle from turning while on the weighbridge.
