EDGE Fall Protection’s Davit Arm Systems is part of an overall davit fall protection system which makes workers feel safe as well as secure whether working at heights or within a confined space. 

EDGE’s various davit arm fall protection options include a freestanding non-penetrating system, wall mounted spreader bar davit crane, wall mounted davit crane, or a davit attachment to a steel column or stub column. Each davit crane is rated with 550 pounds capacity and 1,200 pounds fully retracted. 

It is also possible to utilize a portable davit arm system which is easily transported from base to base for use at multiple workstations. EDGE’s davit arm design system can be permanently mounted.

EDGE’s Davit Arm: What Is a Davit Arm System?

A davit is similar to a small crane. Davit arms are used to perform a variety of liftings, transporting and safety operations. To move whatever is hanging from the davit, a davit arm hoist is needed in the hanging part. A davit arm system typically consists of two main parts: a davit arm and a base plate or pedestal. 

The davit arm mounts in a connector socket secured to the base. The base plate can be mounted to a freestanding non-penetrating platform with counterweights, or in a wall mount or steel column or stub column. 

Unlike bases and sockets, davit arms don’t have to stay permanently fixed. They are mobile which allows flexibility for use in multiple places.

A davit arm system is specifically engineered to safely lower and raise workers and/or equipment from heights or in a confined space. Davits are modular arm and base systems that are designed to provide a safe anchor point. Davit arms can be temporary, permanent, or portable depending on the work site and your specific needs.

Our davits are utilized in construction, industrial, and in maintenance and repair scenarios. Davit systems can also be utilized to lift cargo and non-worker materials. Davit systems enable transportation of materials to a rooftop of a building or to carry materials to elevated locations. 

The davit boom is infinitely adjustable. For simplicity, EDGE’s davit boom ratings have four positions for a horizontal boom angle extension including 36″, 46″, 56″, or 66″, each with 550 pounds load rating.

Davit Arm Fall Protection

Fall protection is critical for keeping your workers safe when working at heights or lowering workers into an enclosed space. EDGE’s range of davit arm systems are engineered to provide a supporting structure to hoist loads or for fall arrest systems. 

Further, davit arms are in integral part of temporary or permanent davit systems which are typically used as a part of fall protection. 

EDGE’s davit systems provide a supporting structure for personal active fall restraint systems. When used with an appropriate safety harness, a davit system can be utilized to safely raise or lower a worker into an opening to complete a task, and they can also be utilized to secure horizontal access.

EDGE’s davit arm systems are the ideal for an adjustable height fall protection system.

Permanent Base or Portable Davit Arm System

For jobs that require you to establish a davit in one location, a permanent base can be vaulted to the floor or the wall. It is also possible to set the permanent base in fresh or existing concrete. A portable davit arm hoist system can be used for temporary projects. 

A davit arm is then secured to the permanent or portable base davit system using an elbow to the davit system support post.
