Weighbridge Lightning Protection Kits


The Titan Multi Deck Weighbridge is typically composed of a four deck split giving you the ability to weigh all types of vehicles from LDVs to Interlink Trucks. Like the Single decks they employ a rugged U-beam design which is fully electric welded for unmatched strength. Concrete options available.

Load Cells

Either analogue or digital load cells can be supplied with our multi deck weighbridges depending on your requirements. 30 Ton ball and cup type load cells are used with digital being prefferable as they are easier to troubleshoot.

Weighbridge Indicators

We stock both analogue and digital indicators for our weighbridges. High resolution and communications for PC come standard as many customers opt to use the Titan vehicle management system for monitoring their weighbridge traffic. Multi Deck indicators have the added functionality of showing all four axles on the readout along with a total vehicle mass.

East Rand Scales has a number of electrical protection solutions for different applications.

Weighbridge installations will typically need earthing from the weighbridge structure to ground. Copper earth spikes ensure that any wayward current is delivered straight into the ground rather than have it pass through your delicate weighing instrument.

Your weighbridge indicator, load cells as well as any computers, printers and other electrical paraphenalia you might have need to be protected from the power supply. East Rand Scales makes use of a 1KVA online UPS with built in sine tamer. This ensures your power does not fluctuate and also keeps your system on when the power fails.

Additional protection is offered through the use of surge suppressors on your load cell wiring. This ensures no overvoltage can make it's way from the weighbridge to your indicator.


The Titan Axle Pad is manufactured from a high strength aluminium alloy. Measuring in at only 30mm high these low profile pads are spaced according to the vehicle being weighed and can be easily repositioned. Easily weigh small and large vehicles.


The Axle Pad's indicator is built into a case for protection when not in use. Its software automatically detects the axle model and will display the weights of individual axles as well as any overloading that may be taking place. The indicator then totalises the weights to give you the overall mass of the vehicle. Can be powered by either AC or DC.

Protection Grade

Axle weighers will be used primarily outdoors and as such will need to endure the elements. The pads supplied with our Titan range are specifically designed for use in environments that may be subject to wet weather. Antirust and slip proof.

An overloaded vehicle is a risk to both infrastructure and life - and it’s illegal, too. In order to help ensure your truck, vans or cars are correctly loaded, Titan have two axle weigher solutions available.
Our axle weigh pads are the cost-effective choice for vehicle weighing - the options we can supply you with come with drive-over weighing pads, and with either weight display showing on the axle weigh pads (AP-100) or on an individual indicator (AP-200). The pads read the weight quickly - and in the case of the AP-200 Axle Weigh Pads, the weight data to be transferred to a printer or database instantly.
Plus, our axle weighers will highlight uneven loading, reducing wear and tear on your vehicles - and will help with under-loading, so you can maximise out-going loads.
Our portable axle weighers are the perfect solution for weighing trucks when leaving a warehouse, or before cargo is loaded onto a ship. Plus, because both solutions are portable, they can be stowed away in the back of a truck or in the cab.
