Davit Arm Systems

Heightsafe are market leaders in the Façade Access industry. Innovative Davit Arm Systems are a lightweight, portable and cost-effective solution for suspended Rope Access.

Heightsafe supply davit arms that are compliant with IRATA legislation so you can be assured of the quality of the system and the safety of the operative. Façade Access is an integral part of your building’s maintenance strategy, in the majority of cases, this requires operatives to utilise abseil techniques to perform tasks such as cleaning of the glazing. Davit arms are a robust, permanent solution ideal for a structure where access to the façade is required frequently.

Heightsafe not only supply these solutions but our specialist teams are able to install davit arm systems nationwide on any building, subject to a review of the roof structure.

As a full service provider Heightsafe offer compliance testing services for these systems regardless of whether we have installed the system or not.
