Six Reasons SURVIVOR® Truck Scales Have More Long-Term Success

1. More Centering Action 

When a truck drives onto a SURVIVOR scale, G-Force technology uses 100% of the gravitational force from this action against itself, eliminating excess movement. This stable design prevents binding and protects load cells from side load shocks, which reduces wear and eliminates the additional costs of installing and maintaining check rods and bumper bolts. 

2. More Air Circulation 

The open bottom design of the SURVIVOR truck scale provides ample breathing room and air circulation, which deters heavy moisture buildup and premature rusting of steel. Other truck scale models that have enclosed cavities trap moisture and predispose steel to earlier decay. Luckily, any exposed surfaces on SURVIVOR steel are protected with an industrial asphalt emulsion or a durable paint finish resulting in a lifetime defense against extreme weather and corrosion. 

3. More Load Cell Protection 

Integrated load cell pockets are placed between longitudinal steel I-beams, which extend across the full length of the weighbridge module. This results in load cell pockets that can withstand wear, pressure, and damage. 

4. More Steel 

SURVIVOR truck scales are built with up to 25% more steel than most competitive models resulting in stronger, higher quality weighbridges. Throughout the weighbridge, I-beams are placed longitudinally so truck tires are always being supported. 

5. More Economical 

Over time, SURVIVOR truck scales have a lower total cost of ownership. This is because they are designed to weigh up to 250 trucks per day for 25 years. 

6. More Support
