The section of pivot davits for lifeboat handling is splitted into two main groups; the systems which are turning-out on gravity power and turning in by the winch and falls, and the systems with turning out/in on hydraulic power.
The group name of Gs(l)p.-type davits represents the most common execution of davit systems for lifeboats and/or combined life-/rescue boats; with turning out on gravity. The systems are in full accordance with the present SOLAS-rules and are MED-certified.
The group name of Gs(l)p.FPh.-type davits represents the very low-build type of davit systems for lifeboats; with turning out on hydraulic power. The systems are very low-build and combine a low weight with an extreme low centre of gravity. The systems are in full accordance with the present SOLAS-rules and are MED-certified.
Each system consists of:
additionally for systems, where the embarkation position is not in stored, but in lowering position (only Glp. and Glp.FPh.):
