 7 Beam design

Full size 7 Beam design

Competitor weighbridges utilise only 6 beams or the middle support is a small channel. 6 beams give no room for driver error or smaller wheelbase vehicles. Your deck plates will bend by off centre driving of small vehicles resulting in future costs for the owner due to plate replacement. Deflection can also be a problem on lighter kg / meter 6 beam decks.
