The PORTABASE Counterbalance is a five piece, portable system which can be easily broken down for transportation. The product is quick and easy to set up with no tools required.

The system is compatible with the TDAVIT and PORTADAVIT QUANTUM providing maximum flexibility where the installation or use of a fixed socket is not possible.

The PORTABASE Counterbalance enables our Davit products to be used for lifting goods up to 600kg, as well as providing access and egress for confined space and work at height tasks, including as an anchor point for fall arrest scenarios.
