A Davit is a structure, usually made of steel, which is used to lower things over the edge of a long drop-off. A Davit crane consists of an angled beam which pivots over a vertical axis. The booms can be either fixed or adjustable and the cranes can be purchased and installed as a permanent or portable solutions depending on the application. Davit cranes can be purchased as manual hand operated devices or a complimentary power winch can be added to create a power operated material handling solution.

One of the greatest advantages for choosing a Davit crane over a jib crane is that the installation is less labor and material intensive because less concrete is necessary for anchoring the base, as illustrated in the image below. This saves the end user a great deal in installation costs.


How to Install a Davit Crane

By fixing independent bases where needed around a work site, a single portable davit crane can be used for multiple workstations for various roof top applications. Rooftop applications are a much more cost effective option than renting a mobile crane, especially when the timeline of the project is not defined.

Some popular rooftop applications are construction sites, grain elevators, and equipment handling for HVAC and maintenance equipment.
