DAVITS and NEEDLES
Rope access davits and needles designed to provide safe access over parapets and curtain walls to enable personnel to carry out maintenance tasks.
Designed in partnership with rope access technicians, the systems have been specifically designed for easy operation and ultimate durability. With multiple sizes and mounting options available, there is a system suited to every project requiring façade access.
Kattsafe davits are designed as a cantilevered anchorage device over balustrades, parapets and curtain walls for rope access work where workers are required to maintain building facades and equipment mounted on the external face of a structure. The davit system connects to the primary structure of the building which includes, wall mount, floor mount and concrete cast-in options, depending on the structure available and the intended use of the system.
There is a variety of options available for mounting the davits including cage bolt, epoxy adhesive, floor mount, wall mount and cast-in. Additionally, there is a low profile option which is used where visual aesthetics are of importance.
Similar in design to davits, Kattsafe needles work particularly well on metal deck roofs where the load on the roof deck needs to spread to avoid damaging the roof area. The telescopic boom can be adjusted in length to allow for situations where extra reach may be required. As the needle is modular in design, it can be configured in length, height and movement providing a fit for purpose solution based on the specific needs of the project.
With concrete, metal deck and swivel mount options the Kattsafe needles can be re-positioned to allow the user to gain optimum access to the building facade.
Flexible and relocatable rope access systems
Kattsafe's davits and needles provide safe access over parapets and curtain walls to enable personnel to carry out maintenance tasks. They offer a very low visual impact from ground level and can be stored away when not in use.
