Davit access systems are used when goods – or even people – have to be lowered or lifted. Davits are particularly useful in confined spaces, and can be either portable or permanently fixed. They have also been used in rescue operations. Davit Access Systems can be portable or can be used in a wide range of working environments, including on rail tracks.

Davits access systems are often used in addition to roof and wall safety to provide a suspension point that will:
• Clear non-load bearing parapets of a building or other architectural features that may be easily damaged.
• Access areas beyond these features which are hard to reach.
