Balancing loads for 40 years

All of the Red Forge systems have VCA approval, Vehicle Telemetry allowing for remote overload warnings, and have all been designed with simplicity of operation in mind.

The Omniweigh™ loadcell based range offers best value industrial accuracy vehicle payload weighing for commercial vehicles.

The Axalert™ Excel is designed to give a very simple 'one screen' display but by still providing all the vehicle loading information required in an easy to read format.

The Axalert™ Plus is based on the highly successful Limitlite™ Plus and is geared towards providing simple overload protection for larger 2 axle vehicles upto 18t GVW.

The Limitlite™ Plus has new added features to the display, making loading a vehicle to full weight even easier to understand.

The Limitlite™ Tradesman is designed as an alternative to the market leading Limitlite™ Plus offering the same flexible features but with an extremely easy to understand traffic light type display.

Cost Effective On Board Trailer Weight Monitor

Trail Weigh is an on-board weighing indicator ideally suited to bulk liquid, grain, powder tankers or forestry transport trailers operating EBS braking systems.

Trail Weigh accurately measures the trailers load while loading is taking place. Trailer Weigh achieves this by making sure the tractor park brake is applied, releasing the service brake on the trailer allowing air bags to settle, Trail Weigh then rechecks the weight.

As Trail Weigh utilizes the trailers technology, the out lay cost for a system is relatively low compared to other On Board Trailer Weighing Systems.

Trail Weigh is suitable for trailers types, including:

• Liquid Tankers
Power Tankers
Forestry / Timber Transport
