Rope Access Davit Arm Systems

Abseil Davit systems have a similar to function to BMUs. Rather than lifting a large basket up and down a building facade, the Davit system can be likened to rope access / abseiling systems. It enables users to safely attach on the roof before moving to the roof edge, and is especially useful where the parapet is particularly high or wide.

The Roof-Davit enables safe and easy access on and off the roof and parapets, along with the additional benefit of the rotating arm. This allows the user to work across a wider areas of the facade without having to re-position themselves, saving them valuable time and reducing unnecessary hassle.

360 Degree Rotating Davit Arm System - A High Quality Design

This system has been designed to meet modern-day rope access technician safety and operation requirements, enabling the davit arms to easily rotate whilst under load. 

This is very important where an operative needs to shift themselves across a facade to carry out their work. If a davit arm doesn't swivel under load, they may not be able to access the necessary areas.

Building Maintenance Units / Window Cleaning Cradles

The Building Maintenance Unite (commonly referred to us BMUs or Window Cleaning Cradles) are often seen on tall and extensive buildings, where the building is fitted with glass fronts and windows. There are a range of BMU sizes with some having capacity to carry several users at a time.  Tasks can be completed more effectively in this manner.

These Roof-Davit systems can be used to descend buildings using rope access techniques. Rated as rope access and fall arrest devices, in appropriate situations, they can be very effective alternatives to the large Building Maintenance Units (BMU's) / Window Cleaning Cradles.

Due to the wide variety of building facades the Roof-Davit system can be more appropriate than BMU's in certain situations. It enables rope access technicians to change their position more easily and access areas which would not be possible when using a BMU.  A common situation is where windows are set back within a balcony and window cleaners need to make access.  The Roof-Davit system would allow them to pull themselves in and over the edge to carry out their tasks.  A simple but effective option.

Many high rise London buildings with balcony's find these as quality and simple solutions. 

Whether the equipment is needed  to clean windows, access the building facade to survey and inspect it, or for some other activity, these can be a high-quality and bespoke option with only moderate impact to the roof.
