Pivot davit systems

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:

  • stools/tracks suitable for welding to deck adapted to the deck situation
  • arm in box shape construction
  • lifeboat winch with centrifugal brake and electric motor in IP 56
  • electric system with starter box for under-deck and push-button box for on-deck
  • wire rope in galvanized (anti-corrosion) non-rotating steel
  • galvanized suspensions with lower blocks, chains and links
  • remote control of the stop-go type
  • lashing gear with polyester belts and stainless steel ratchets
  • maintenance slings

additionally for systems, where the embarkation position is not in stored, but in lowering position (only Glp. and Glp.FPh.):

  • galvanized bowsing gear
  • galvanized tricing gear

options:

  • electric system with stainless starter box with push buttons in on-deck execution
  • embarkation platform between davits with access ladder
  • combined bowsing/tricing gear in stainless steel with polyester belts
