Counterbalance Davit System

The MGF Counterbalance Davit System consists of five individual lightweight components to enable easy transportation and installation. The Davit and RGA4 or AB15RT fall arrest/RGR 7 man-riding winches are connected to the free standing base. The anchoring system includes a weight rack that uses counterbalance/ballast weights to provide support for a davit arm.

No floor penetration is required and the complete system is modular and can be assembled in minutes providing a safe means of man-riding, fall arrest and rescue from height. The MGF Counterbalance Davit is the ideal system for multiple entry points to various confined spaces, or for when a permanent base plate cannot be mounted.
