Davit Arm System
The Davit Arm System is broken down into two separate components. The Davit Base, which is a fixed attachment that holds the Davit Arm. The Davit Arm is either a fixed or portable crane like device, that consists of an anchoring point.
Davit Arm Systems are used to raise, lower and suspend workers that are performing maintenance duties. Each assembly part is hot dipped galvanized for maximum durability. This system is used in addition to roof safety/ tie-back anchors and provides a suspension point. For a permanent Davit system it is designed to withstand all loads that are applied to it unless stated otherwise in the Ontario Building Code. For the system that contains a portable Davit Arm it is to be designed to withstand a maximum weight of 70kg that is to be applied.
