Trade Approved Scales for Industrial and Commercial Use
Our range of trade Approved or EC trade approved scales and balances. Weighing scales referred to as 'Trade Approved' simply means that they can be used in any application for verifying the weight of a product which is sold to a market by weight or to ensure accurate contents on packaged goods.
A good example of verifying the weight is the parcel scale or postal scale , in your local post office they are used to weigh parcels, envelopes and packages, which are sold to you by weight and the price calculated at the counter. Similarly, checkweighing and floor scales allow businesses to weigh large crates of particular products that can then be attributed a price per unit.
Packaged products are viewed differently and the law relating to the weight content is designed to ensure that the item being purchased has a minimum content weight. An example for the Food industry is a packet of crisps, on the bag there is a weight and an "e" symbol. This means that the contents of the packet are not less than the weight indicated. A product like this has to have been weighed on a trade approved scale.
Trade approved is a terminology used to broadly describe a category; the same products can also be referred to as Trade Stamped, Verified, Class III or Class II, EC Stamped, M Class Approved and some times Trading Standards Approved. Basically it all means the same thing, the scales are tested to a standard agreed by the EC and each machine must carry the necessary markings.

Q: I work in a warehouse, which trade approved scales would you recommend?
A: There are many trade approved scales on the market, which one best suits your needs will depend on how you plan to use your trade approved scale.
Floor scales are most useful when dealing with large crates or heavy boxes and can weigh products without too much lifting.
Compact scales such as the AZextra Price-Computing Retail Scales provide a smaller unit that can be transported or placed on a bench to weigh smaller everyday items from parcels to groceries.
Checkweighing scales operate best within warehouse applications and can ensure that the same products retain the same standard weight, flagging up potential issues when a product deviates away from the typical weight.
