Please tell others on the net, newsgroups & chat rooms that there is a 500 pound scale designed for weighing people.

The Siltec PS5AP offers 500 pounds or 225 kilograms weighing capacity.  This is the perfect scale for obese people who can't find a scale that weighs over 300 pounds.

Now there is an economical alternative allowing you to weigh yourself without spending $500, $600 or $700 for a physician's scale (Seca 644 Handrail Scale 660lb x 0.2).  Most bathroom scales only weigh up to 330 lbs, which made it extremely difficult for someone over 330 pounds to weigh themselves without visiting the doctor's office.  If you are overweight please tell your Bariatric Physician about the PS5AP so other people can learn there is a low cost 500 pound scale available.

The PS5AP scale is also ideal for shipping and receiving.  Low profile design allows cartons to slide easily onto the weighing platform.

The slanted display is easy to read whether sitting or standing.  Weights are displayed in with the large bright red LED 4 digits (0.6 " high) and unmistakably readable.

Other Siltec models: PS100L > PS200L > PS500L > WS SERIES


The PS5AP comes standard with AC Adapter with built in battery charger.  The unit can also run on six AA size nickel cadmium rechargeable batteries not included.

The display for the PS5AP is mounted on a 35" high post.  The indicator cable runs through the center of the post eliminating the chances of you catching the cable sliding parcels off the platform.  The post is constructed of steel tubing.

For those people who prefer the scale without the pole we offer the PS500L.  All the same great features just without the pole and $20.00 less.  Some people prefer no pole since it is easier to store your scale under your bed.

Assembling the PS5AP couldn't be easier since the manufacturer has included the required allen wrench so there is no looking around for any tools.  Simply secure the 8 Allen head screws and you're done.

The PS5AP is also used for weighing parcels.  Because the platform is 12" x 12.4", larger parcels cannot be centered due to the post's fixed position.  For this reason we sell more of the PS500L's and WS500L's since the scales offer the ability to center large parcels for shipping applications.
