The PUA669 floor scale is designed to be installed above the floor in sanitary applications. It is equipped with gas springs, enabling a single person to lift the scale easily for cleaning. When the scale is tilted up, the floor and underside of the scale are exposed for quick and easy washdown. There is no pit to clean out and no need to recalibrate the scale after cleaning. Safety locks hold the scale securely in place when it is in the up or down position.
