Many people are now choosing to use lightweight, portable, modular, cost-efficient, and extremely durable lightweight structures that are more flexible and mobile than in-ground or above-ground weighbridges. Some of these types of structures are portable garages or stands, and others are fully enclosed, self-contained, self-supporting garage structures. Portable weighbridges, such as the one shown above-ground, can easily be lifted and moved, whereas fully enclosed, self-contained, self-supporting garage weighbridges require building codes and special permitting. The most portable weightbridges on the market today are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is an incredibly strong, durable, and resilient material that has low maintenance and weight requirements.
If you choose to have a fully in-ground or overhead, concrete, or aluminum weighted bridge, your custom constructed structure will be designed to meet your exact specifications. Many different types of composite decking are used to achieve the best possible results and provide the greatest structural strength and durability. When selecting a composite decking system, it is important to choose a company that offers low maintenance and maximum stability. In-ground weighbridges require digging, leveling, and spraying, as well as periodic re-railings and sealing. Once your weighbridge is installed, you can enjoy an attractive and completely finished structure that is extremely low maintenance.
Concrete, steel, and aluminum weighbridges are all less expensive than traditional wood structures, but they are much less stable and reliable. Steel weighbridges are very stable, but are susceptible to cracking under extreme stress. An aluminum weighbridge is very low maintenance, but it is more susceptible to galvanic corrosion and rust, especially in humid climates. Because the steel posts of an aluminum weighbridge are lightweight, they are more likely to be moved and displaced during severe weather.
Many experienced contractors will agree that the best and most economical option for many people is a portable, in-ground, self-supporting, self-contained, completely enclosed, steel-framed weightbearing gate or wall. These are highly customizable with various styles, shapes, and configurations allowing for the most optimal match to your personal home, business, or building. Portable weighbridges are a great investment because they can be removed from the site as needed. There is no need to worry about high maintenance, rust, or other problems associated with wooden structures weighing up to a ton. This allows for greater flexibility with how to use your weighbridge. When choosing a weighbridge for your project, it is important to research your options and find the right one for your needs.
