A normal countertop set of scales is infinitely useful, whether you’re baking a cake or weighing a parcel. But if you’re weighing something big or cumbersome, that set of scales suddenly seems inadequate. A floor scale is essential for weighing large items, and is a must-have for so many different businesses: farms, warehouses, logistics, and much more. We’ve sourced top-quality, accurate industrial scales so you can get a precise and reliable reading every time.

Accurate readings for bulky items

For retailers, manufacturers and all kinds of industry professionals, a floor scale is an extremely useful industrial appliance. A floor scale can be used to measure the weight of any heavy item which can be placed on a flat surface: ideal for weighing crates of stock or agricultural produce, sacks of building materials such as gravel or sand, or even to weigh things like recyclables or livestock! A floor scale is especially useful for processing large parcels, whether you will be taking care of the delivery or you run a customs office where such parcels will be controlled. Any stationary load that can be placed on the scale using a fork-lift truck, crane or old-fashioned manpower will be measured quickly and precisely by the scales; the large weighing plate would be ideal for containers of retail goods or for large kitchen appliances such as fridges and dishwashers. These scales are sourced from reliable manufacturers such as Steinberg Systems, a reputable German manufacturer who also provides our high-accuracy scales for laboratory use – meaning you can trust the accuracy and lifespan of these products. User-friendliness and practicality has also been optimised so that these appliances are ideally suited for regular operation; for example, the LCD readout with backlit display is clear and easy to read, and can be operated portably so you do not need to stoop to see the result.
