The lightweight and innovative Davit Arm Urban Manhole Barrier System is one of the only systems of its kind, granting the user the ability to install a davit arm over a manhole for rescue purposes. This davit system offers unrelenting high quality, even for the most challenging fall protection requirements.

This personal protection equipment is remarkably ergonomic, and unlike a tripod, can be positioned next to the confined space entry or exit as opposed to on top of it owing to its expandable barrier. This provides operatives with much more accessibility to the work area, and reduces the risk of potential trip hazards.

Transportation and set-up of the system is extremely easy and can even be built by one person. The Davit Arm Urban Manhole Barrier System is one of the leading patented systems on the market, and has a distinguishable design and colouring which ensures greater visibility in the work area. Durable, versatile and lightweight, this system is the complete package. It comes with a comprehensive Davit Arm Kit, including the Davit Arm, Winches, Counterweight and Blockade equipment.
