Questions about our online shop

If I need the User Manual for a product or have an inquiry
but would rather email instead of calling, is there an email address I can use?

Certainly, please send you inquiry to


Quality at seca with letter and seal - what does that mean?

When you purchase seca products, you acquire not only sophisticated technology developed over the past 175 years, but also high-quality measuring and weighing systems certified by governmental agencies and validated by scientific institutions. seca products comply with European directives, national laws and standards.

Environmental protection is taken very seriously at seca. Among other things, we are concerned with preserving our natural resources. We therefore remind you not to throw away your seca device with the usual household waste. The device must be properly disposed of as electronic scrap. Please observe your country's national regulations.

Do not throw away disposable and rechargeable batteries with household trash, regardless of whether they contain hazardous materials. As a consumer, you are legally obliged to dispose of all types of batteries at community or retail collection points. Hand over all batteries only in a completely discharged state. You can put the packaging material for your product into your community's recycling system.

As a consumer, how can I dispose of my used device?

Consumers may send their used devices to us for disposal. We will make sure that the devices are properly disposed of. Please send your device to seca corporation, 13601 Benson Avenue, Chino, Ca 91710.

What is the tolerance for my scale?

This depends on the model of scale. Please refer to your scale User Manual or call our Technical Service department for the specifications for your model, or email your inquiry including the model number to and we will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.

What can I use to clean/sanitize my scale?

Any medical disinfecting wipe with a non-abrasive surface.

What materials are your scales made of?

Medical-grade, non-porous plastic surfaces, with sturdy steel frame.

Will the scale weigh accurately if the floor or the scale itself
is not perfectly level, or if the scale is on thin carpet?

Yes, this will not effect the accuracy of the scale.

I’m trying to mount one of your stadiometers to the wall, but the numbering on the stadiometer does
not match-up with the tape measure I’m using – is there something I’m missing?

The numbers on the stadiometer are offset to compensate for the space used by the headpiece. Due to this offset design, a tape measure placed in parallel with the stadiometer, when properly mounted to the wall, will not exactly match-up with the numbers on the stadiometer. Please consult the instructions for the installation of the height measurement device you purchased. If additional clarification or help is needed, feel free to call and speak with a member of our Technical Service department.

Do products that have batteries come with batteries included?

Yes, batteries are included. Most of our scales use standard size AA batteries. Our home/bathroom category of digital scales use size AAA batteries. Some of our larger medical multifunction scales use special rechargeable battery packs that do not need to be replaced; on those units the included AC adapter acts as a charger to both power the device and also recharges the internal rechargeable battery pack. Once charged, the internal battery pack can power the scale for several weeks or much longer depending on use.
