The Davit system consists of galvanized steel sockets, anchored to the building and a high-strength aluminium alloy mast and arm (the davit). The davit suspends either a roof-rigged or ground-rigged powered platform with safe access and egress on the roof. ATLAS in partnership with SPIDER offers a variety of operator-friendly davit systems.
Davit systems are implemented nation wide, easy to operate, economical and readily customized. Sockets are generally exposed, but can be recessed below the roof surface where public space requires an aesthetic solution. Sockets and davits offer the advantage of allowing maintenance personnel to board the stage while it rests on the rooftop and can be designed to work on buildings with multiple levels (terraces, balconies, etc.).
