As the region’s most comprehensive scale company, we were recently asked to provide platforms along with a Sidewinder Truck Scale. The platforms allow drivers to step out of their trucks safely, when needed. This was important to the customer because they wanted to avoid having drivers step out of their trucks and onto the scale for fear of safety concerns.
Due to our ability to fabricate on-site, we were able to design and manufacture a set of platforms avoiding shipping costs and long lead times. The platforms were designed to meet safety guidelines for the MSHA regulated site. Most importantly they were designed in accordance to the specifications of the Sidewinder Truck Scale after installation, to assure that the height of the platform was at the appropriate height in accordance with the scale.
