Rice Lake Surefoot is a replacement foot, which adapts to most floor scales

• Use with single-ended beams to provide large, flat, adjustable introduction surface
• Special neoprene rubber sandwich base gives high accuracy, linearity and repeatability

We wanted to share this story. Recently a scale dealer responded to a call from a customer whose Roughdeck floor scale had been damaged by a forklift accident -- naturally the scale technician (and the scale owner) expected the worst. After all, thousands of pounds of force slamming into a scale is never a good thing. This could be a very costly $$$ event.

What the scale repair guy saw when he arrived to the scene was a pleasant surprise.

The Rice Lake Weighing Systems RoughDeck scale was still functional. So functional, in fact, that the scale didn’t even need to be re-calibrated! After replacing the scale’s Surefoot feet, the customer was back in business, happy that downtime and profit loss were minimized, and their normal routine could be resumed.

So was this instance simply a fluke? Absolutely not.

Before Rice Lake’s RoughDeck Scales hit the market in 1991, extensive research and testing had been performed on all aspects of the scales, ensuring the name was going on only the highest quality product, backing RLWS reputation for superior quality that brings customers business back.

Part of the research that went into the RoughDeck focused on which foot design to use. A quality designed foot not only ensures weighing accuracy, but provides a level of protection most don’t even realize is there. Multiple designs were tested, some faring better than others, but ultimately one type stood out from the rest. The Surefoot design.

The Surefoot stainless steel and neoprene rubber combination provides protection for the load cell. This is due to its specialized design. The Surefoot has the ability to account for error in its rubber center, or even slide with an impact, thanks to its ingenious stainless steel base.

In the example above, this customer's choice to buy a quality Rice Lake Weighing Systems RoughDeck floor scale saved the company the cost of a scale, load cell, maintenance, re-installation costs, lost time (productivity). Of course we can't promise that you'll experience the same kind of success but we can tell you that Rice Lake does make some very durable and high quality scale components.
