Trade Approved Scales for Industrial and Commercial Use

Our range of UK trade approved scales and balances for industrial and commercial warehouse environments. 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.

The term 'Trade Approved', also known as Trade Stamped, Class III or Class II, EC Stamped, M Class Approved and some times Trading Standards Approved, indicates that the scale is tested to a standard agreed by the EC and each machine must carry the necessary markings.

The scales in this section are certified for any industrial operation that requires verification or trading by weight, including recycling and scrap metal trading, parts manufacturing, commercial packing operations, parcel shipping and verifying weight in compliance with SOLAS regulation.

When would I need a trade approved scale?

Postal services/ Shipping

Trade approved industrial scales such as a parcel scale or postal scale would be required in your local post office for verifying the weight of parcels, envelopes and packages, which are sold to you by weight and the price calculated at the counter.

Commercial Bottling

Mass commercial bottling companies require trade approved scales for ensuring that the content within the bottle matches the advertised weight value. Trade certifed checkweighing and floor scales allow businesses to check the weight of large crates and pallets of bottled products that can then be attributed a price per unit/ per bottle.

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. In the Food industry, for example, a packet of crisps contains 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 must be weighed on a trade approved scale to ensure that customers receive the specified amount on the bag, differences in the weight presented on the bag and the actual weight can result in penalities which may in turn damage customer loyalty.

SOLAS Regulation

As part of SOLAS weighing regulation, containers that are loaded onto a ship will need to have a verified proof of weight before they are shipped.

The M-mark and sticker that identifies scales as being verified as 'use for trade' has been changed from green to black. Some older stickers may also show a black M on a green background.

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 the scale, the weight capacity required and the size of the product.

Floor scales are most useful when dealing with large crates or heavy boxes and can weigh products without too much lifting. Adam Floor scales such as the PT platform can be combined with the GK trade approved indicator to perform a greater variety of weighing tasks, including parts counting, accumulation, percentage weighing and checkweighing.

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.
