A Davit Arm System is a fall protection suspension system used in confined spaces that are hard to reach and in rescue applications. Davit is a crane-like device suitable for situations where it is necessary to support a suspended load.
Applications of Davit Arm Systems
Davit Arm Systems are commonly used in the construction industry, for example when underground access is needed, for supporting workers over the edge of the building, or for lowering and lifting loads and materials.
A davit arm provides a fixed anchor point that helps workers with entering, escaping, and working in a confined space. By adding a winch or retractable lanyard to the Davit Arm System, the worker can be easily lowered down to perform his job, and then pulled up upon the competition of the work.
Davit arms are used in critical applications where it is important to keep the worker safe. Necessarily, the davit system must be carefully inspected before every use. Otherwise, there is a risk of an injury not just to the worker hanging on the cantilever arm, but also to the personnel working below.
At VERX AU, we offer Davit Arm Systems from reliable and experienced manufacturer of safety equipment: IKAR.
IKAR Davit is made of stainless steel and has a modular design that allows you to build a system, which would precisely fit all possible applications in every confined environment. It is designed to be used with IKAR HRA retractable fall arrester or/and with IKAR winches that can be easily attached to the Davit via consoles. IKAR Davit is mobile, so it can be easily released from the variety of available bases and sleeves, transported, and installed in another site with other fixed bases.
The swiveling davit systems are free-standing or attachable to walls, tanks, or other entrances. A simple plug-in mechanism allows for quick installation. Designed with an integrated fall brake system and the ability to mount mechanical devices as winches and retractable fall arresters, IKAR Davit provides the user with peace of mind for years to come.
In order to build your davit system, order a cantilever arm, choose from a range of fixed or temporary davit bases and sleeves, and add required consoles for IKAR HRA self-retracting lanyards or IKAR PLW winch attachment.
