Survivor scales provide the lowest total cost of ownership for any commercial scale available today and they’re backed by the best warranty in the industry. Whether selecting the standard model customizing one to your application what goes into each Survivor from start to finish is what earns its badge as the toughest truck scale on earth. Survivor scales use up to 30% more steel and competing with heavy-duty I beams strategically placed with flow of traffic guaranteed support regardless of truck position. Each weigh bridge is thoroughly cleaned prior to painting to remove mill scale and surface imperfections and rustproofing undercoating is applied to the underside of the scale to protect against moisture damage and finally a high-quality finish is applied all visible surfaces for an automobile like finish to protect the scale from the elements.
From your choice of concrete or steel deck; concrete deck scales offer better traction and greater rigidity while steel scales can be delivered and install and placed into service in as little as four to six hours. Steel deck truck scales are also lighter in weight and easier to relocate. Steel deck designs also feature an open bottom for unrestricted air flow, eliminating the possibility of trapped condensation that causes premature rust and corrosion. Unlike competing models, Survivor scales offer our signature boltless top access plates that’s stay in place during operation yet provide fast and easy access to load cell pockets and are integrated into the steel structure of each sale inside the outer I beam. Rice Lake’s patented G-Force single link suspension system eliminates excess movement and scale ware by using 100% of the loading action against itself returning the scale to dead center without check rods or bumper bolts.
Survivor scales are fabricated with both steel and flexible conduit to protect load cell cables from rodents vandals and environmental hazards.
