Traversing davits


The davit system for extensive perimeters

The traversing davit applies where the labor-intensive operation of moving portable davits from location to location must be overcome.

The Davit system is a traditional and effective method to provide permanent access to facades of buildings with high parapets and little space on the roof for the installation of a complex BMU. Single-user cradles and bosun's chairs -such as RopeClimber bosun's chair - may also be suspended from individual davits. 

The davit moves systematically over a rail structure fixed to the inner side of the parapet. 

The design of the machine and its components are calculated with latest generation software and tested according to both European – EN1808 and Machine Directive 2006/42/CEE - and North American standards.

  • A lightweight solution

  • Rapidly installed and low-cost solution
  • The cradle or suspended equipment can be used for other maintenance systems
  • Easily operated. Just requires a basic training in work at heights
  • Modular system which allows augmentation or exclusion of elements
