Davit Hoist Systems

Davit Hoist Systems

Davit hoist systems are manufactured from high strength aluminium which makes them lightweight enough to manoeuvre but strong enough to withstand the strain of lowering a worker into a confined space. A davit arm provides semi-permanent overhead or side anchor point in many confined space applications that may not have a fixed anchor point such as a ladder. A davit can be supplied on a base, attaches to a mast or even a vehicle mount.

The davit hoist has a number of benefits over a tripod for use in confined space / retrieval applications.

1. Reach - The davit raises a worker out of the hole, pivots 180o left or right and lowering onto a safe space. A tripod has a fixed position and the legs will get in the way of moving the worker away from the entry point

2. Overhead Clearance - The davit arm is adjustable for overhead clearance whereas a tripod has a restricted height. The tripod narrows at the peak leaving minimal room for manoeuvre.

3. Base Adjustment - The davit hoist base adjusts to provide a large span that prevents it from toppling over. It can be slid into position with the legs either side of a tank for example. The davit provides an overhead anchor point for entry into an application where the entry point is above ground. A tripod can't easily be positioned over a tank because the legs aren't wide enough to fit around it.
