Many Marsden bench scales carry an IP rating. The IP rating is referring to the scale’s level of protection. The first digit (e.g ‘6’) refers to the scale’s protection to dust. The second digit (e.g ‘5’) denotes the protection against water and other liquids.
IP65 rated scales are protected against moisture when wiped down with a damp cloth. IP67 scales are splashproof and have protection against moisture, and can withstand being washed down. IP68 scales are waterproof and can survive much more punishing environments - including being submerged in a bucket of water. Find out more here.
