It has been quite some time since digital floor scales arrived on the scene and made a huge difference to the way heavy objects are weighed. Digital floor scales are very slim and reduce the height to which the heavy object needs to be lifted to be placed on the platform of the floor scale. That was some time ago and yet the innovation to further refine digital floor scale continues unabated. So even if you bought a new digital floor scale when they first appeared some years ago, it is time for you to check out the even more specialized features that the latest digital floor scales have.
Take for example the need for a floor scale in an environment where very high hygiene standards need to be maintained. Not only does such a scale need to be made from a material that is easy to clean and remains hygienic when cleaned by being very chemically inert, it also means that there should not be crevices in the design of the scale where material may get lodged and make the environment unhygienic by rotting. The material of choice is often stainless steel, which is used for other high hygiene processes such as food processing.
That still leaves the problem of odd bits getting stuck in gaps and not being easy to remove. The solution is the use of continuous welding so that there are no gaps where organic material can get lodged. Of course, when it comes to hygiene the looks are as important as performance and these scales come with a variety of finishes for you to choose from. The appearance of such a scale from a high quality manufacturer inspires confidence and you will like it for its great looks as much as you like it for its performance. You can also get NTEP scales that are meant for high hygiene environments.
