Vertical Type Davit Arms
As with all of our lifting davit arms, our vertical type davits can be configured to the specific requirements of specific customers.
- Vertical lifting davits can be extremely useful where there is an obstruction which must be worked around, as the vertical davit means that a live load can be moved around obstructions and then lifted/lowered as required.
- All aspects of our vertical davit cranes are customizable, including the height, reach, capacity and, if required; sockets and lifting equipment.
This Vertical Pole Davit Arm comes with a wide range of optional accessories and fittings including - Safe Working Load (kg), Height to Eye (mm), Reach Required (mm), Socket Type, Number of Sockets Required, Material Type, Hoist Type, Input Hoist Height of Lift.
Our articulating davit arms allow superior range and positioning of a lifting device (for example a hand chain block or a hand winch). This is achievable because the lifting device can be positioned on the lifting point of the davit (this is adjustable owing to the castellation adjustments, the whole arm of the davit slews approximately 270°, and the final 40% of the length of the davit arm articulates, effectively providing a slew of 360° and a far greater range of movement and flexibility in the positioning of the lifting centre.
Supplied with a Manual and Electric wire rope hoist. The manual hoist acts as a back-up though is also commonly used to raise (and lower) the electric winch from the sea going vessel.
Hoist mounting: The Electric hoist is mounted on to a foot plate fabricated to the Davit socket; the winch wire is then deflected over a pulley wheel.
This is for ease of installation and to avoid unnecessary manual handling that would otherwise be required raising the winch.
Quick release mountings are combined into the design.
