Weightron become first UK weighbridge manufacturer to meet new assessment criteria
27 November 2014
Following the formal assessment and certification by the Notified Body - Centre for Assessment Ltd*, Weightron Bilanciai Ltd are now authorised to issue declarations of performance certificates (CE Marking) with its structural steel work in line with the EN 1090 harmonised standard. The certification (Ref 14/3498) covers the company’s wide range of weighbridges and ancillary items, including ramps and instrumentation support structures.
From the 1st July 2014 it has become a legal requirement within the UK that all structural steel work being despatched from production facilities for use within civil works must be CE Marked. This CE requirement is based on the European Construction Product Regulation (CPR).
Weightron’s Sales Director Emlyn Roberts is clear on the importance of this latest certification: “We believe we are the first UK weighbridge manufacturer to achieve this certification. This under-pins the quality of our weighbridge products, providing the reassurance to the market of our fabrication and welding expertise, together with our production control capabilities. The CE Marking of structural steel for civil engineering works is regulated by Trading Standards. Engineering contractors and insurance companies underwriting works will expect that structural steel arriving at site is CE Marked with the supporting declarations of performance certificate.”
Weightron design, build and install a complete range of pit and surface mount weighbridges, instrumentation and software. Their products are used across a wide range of industries including energy from waste, waste recycling, chemical, petrochemical, plastics, engineering, quarrying and agriculture. The company specialises in complete weighbridge systems that integrate directly with established software systems including SAP, Sage and Microsoft Navision. Peripheral equipment includes driver-operated terminals, ANPR cameras, barriers, traffic lights, RFID card readers and radiation detection systems.
