This is the only Noseweight Gauge approved and calibrated to the British standard for these instruments. It offers calibrated precision, accuracy, reliability and technical superiority over other Noseweight Gauges. It has a clear large scale to ensure the precise and safe loading for this safety critical area, to ensure caravan stability when towing.
The Camping and Caravan Club conducted a study on Noseweight Gauges and found them to be inaccurate and unreliable. They then approached Milenco and asked if we could produce a Noseweight Gauge to the standard BS7691, which was written in 2004. At this time no one had produced a conforming gauge to the standard.
We conducted studies on the available Noseweight Gauges and at best found them only accurate to within 12 kilos but more concerning is that we found these Noseweight Gauges often became ridiculously inaccurate with use.
The Milenco Precision Calibrated Noseweight Gauge has been manufactured using unique materials so that its calibration remains accurate even after 1000 uses. Other Noseweight Gauges can be up to 30 kilos out after 1000 uses.
Another improvement we have made is that the scale is much clearer and goes up to 130 kilos and is accurate to within 2 kilos (as required by BS7691).
Further improvements include the fact we made the Noseweight Gauge the same height as your caravan, so you do not need to block it up to use it.
We know this Gauge costs a few pounds more, but you are getting real value for money and something that works correctly, exactly to the standard.
We think this is far better than something that can be potentially dangerous, as you can end up with a low Noseweight, which is the trend with the un-calibrated Noseweight Gauges as the springs soften with use especially those using piano wire.
