Confined Space Rescue Systems

Rescue Systems

By providing height and outreach, davits offer a point of attachment that is convenient for its user. Due to the high overturning loads that can be generated by davit systems, it is essential that stability is provided by a base system or socket that is suitable for the task.

A davit arm is part of the system used to safely lower and raise people from height or in confined spaces to enable routine duties to be performed safely. They also provide a means for casualty extraction or rescue from confined spaces. Used in a variety of situations for example trenches, drop shafts, silos, tanks and cargo holds, davits can provide a flexible system for the protection against falls from height and rescue from confined spaces.

Certain davit systems can offer a permanent solution for workers that need to perform duties on the façade of a structure.

Davit Arm Solutions

Our davit arm and hoist systems are designed for working at height and confined space entry, and are fully tested and compliant with all relevant standards including BS 8610: 2017. The units are constructed of lightweight, high-strength materials and some systems can be broken down for easy transport.

A wide range of moveable davit bases are available including dead weight systems, H frames and even tow bar attachments. Freestanding portable bases are ideal for work areas where frequent set up and break down is required or where no suitable structure is available for the mounting of a fixed base.

When access is required on a regular basis, davit sockets can be used. These are manufactured as part of the davit system and can be fixed to concrete and steel where structural requirements can be met. Davit sockets are available in anodized or galvanised mild steel or stainless steel for a range of different structural configurations.

Our davit systems have been designed and installed for many of our major clients in the Energy & Utilities Sectors.

Workers required to use a davit arm should undertake training to find out more about our Davit training. Click below to find out more about our davit arm training.

Davit Training

Installation, Testing and Certification

Davit arm systems should be installed by a competent company. They should be visually checked before and after each use and be inspected annually to maintain safety standards. Note: where a davit is used to lift/lower personnel it comes under the LOLER Regulations and must be inspected in accordance with its recommendations. As experts in fall protection solutions, we offer a full design service, installation of the product and can provide ongoing annual inspection and certification.

Our Offer
  • Guardrails Edge Protection

    Guardrails are designed to completely remove the risk of a fall from height. They act as a physical barrier and mean workers do not need to be trained to use or inspect them, removing the need to wear personal fall protective equipment (FPE).

  • Collective Fall Protection

    Collective fall protection solutions are designed to protect more than one person falling from height. They protect all employees collectively without them needing a harnesses or restrictive working line.

  • Abseil Systems

    Abseiling can provide safe and efficient access for buildings. We can provide an end-to-end service for abseil rails and anchors, from design and installation, through to inspection and certification.

  • Fall Protection Anchor Points

    We can help you select the right type of eyebolt or anchor point for your circumstances and help you maintain compliance with the relevant standards and regulations

  • Ladder Safety Systems

    Safety when ascending and descending a ladder system remains paramount but also it is important that the worker can complete the work by ascending and descending comfortably and without restrictions.

  • Horizontal and Vertical Lifelines

    It is generally accepted that the starting point when considering all work at height should be the hierarchy of control. Once it’s determined that working at height is essential, the next step is to ensure workers are not exposed to unnecessary risk and that suitable and sufficient means for protection from falls from height are in place such as a fall protection system.
