Fall Arrest Davit Arms & Posts for Working at Height

Quick Ref: CN-1200
Standard and Custom Davit arms at Extremely Competitive Prices!

LiftingSafety offer Davits made to our customers specification manufactured from galvanised steel, stainless steel or from lightweight aluminium. We offer two main designs of lightweight portable davit arms for working at height applications, 'Lean Over' type davits and 'Vertical Pole' type davits. The vertical pole davits are usually supplied with a split vertical pole with male / female socket to make manual handling easier. They are suited to applications where there is an obstruction which must be worked around (like over a handrail). Because the unit is relatively compact, it offers an excellent solution for a confined space or restricted access environment. Many of our customers from the offshore oil and gas industries utilise our davits in either aluminium or stainless steel as the working environment demands. Stainless steel lifting davit arms are utilised by food production industries, where stringent regulations must be adhered to with regard to cleanliness. All of our special davit arm jib cranes can be manufactured to our customers specification (height of lift and reach) and are designed for the lifting of people (man-riding application). 

A Davit arm used for working at height is basically a portable lightweight anchorage device, EN795 certified and used in fall arrest scenarios, suspended rope access work (Man riding) and for rescue of persons, either after a fall or for emergency escape from a dangerous situation in a confined space (examples: through fire, poisonous gas or due to a medical condition).

We offer two main designs of portable davit arms for working at height applications:

  • 'Lean Over' type davits; these are the most popular because they are cheaper and come apart into smaller lightweight sections.
  • 'Vertical Pole' type davits; these are particularly suited to applications where there is an obstruction which must be worked around or over, like over a handrail or a piece of machinery, they also give greater available space around the person suspended from the davit. To keep individual component weights to a minimum the vertical pole is usually supplied with a split in two halves, connected with a male/female socket, this makes manual handling easier.

Davits - Additional Information

Our lightweight portable man-riding/rescue davit arms are made from galvanized mild steel though can also be supplied made from ultra lightweight aluminium or corrosion resistant stainless steel if required the preferred choice for the offshore oil and gas industries.
Stainless steel lifting davit arms are supplied into the food production offshore and pharmaceutical industries. We consider all of our height safety davits specials because they are all made to order to our customers dimensions and with accessories to suit the customers working at height/confined space application.

We also offer davits for materials lifting applications, again to our customers specifications and up to 1000kg safe working load (SWL)
Fall arrest, Man-riding and rescue davits are very portable, easily transported between jobs - reducing the overall cost as one davit can service multiple sockets. We offer many standard socket options for our davit arms though can also make sockets to suit the customers support structure.

The davit arms supplied by Selby Engineering and Lifting Safety are often the first choice for architects and engineers worldwide because our range is potentially that big; by being able to design and manufacture adaptor brackets on to our davit.
