EDGE Fall Protection announces the release of their new Davit Arm product. It is specifically engineered to safely lower and raise workers and/or equipment from heights or in a confined space. Used in construction, industrial, and maintenance or repair scenarios, a davit is similar to a small crane. It performs a variety of lifting, transporting, and safety operations, and typically consists of two main parts: a davit arm and a base plate or pedestal.
EDGE Fall Protection’s Davit Arm Systems is part of an overall davit fall protection system with options including 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. Importantly, it is both OSHA and Cal-OSHA approved.
Fall protection is not only critical for keeping workers safe when working at heights or lowering workers into an enclosed space, but required by law. An integral part of temporary or permanent davit systems which are typically used as a part of fall protection, EDGE’s range of davit arm systems is engineered to provide a supporting structure to hoist loads or provide a supporting structure for personal fall arrest systems.
With various options available, EDGE’s davit arm systems are corrosion-resistant, lightweight, portable, and ideal for an adjustable height fall protection system. With a 4 position boom/extension and mast made of advanced composite material, it can be used with an appropriate safety harness. Their davit system can also be used to safely raise or lower workers and to secure horizontal access.
For jobs requiring the establishment of a davit in one location, a permanent base can be affixed to the floor or the wall, whereas a portable davit arm hoist system can be used for temporary projects.
Safety is a detail that EDGE takes very seriously. Whether parapet protection, a portable davit arm or other davit systems are needed, EDGE offers four options.
