The PORTA-DAVIT is a simple structure comprising
two main pieces that assemble with ease.
First place the base of the davit, which has a male
spigot, into the socket and then insert the top half
of the davit on to the lower assembly.
The final stage is to attach the strap that supports
the arm of the davit at one of the three radius
adjustment positions. The unit is then ready to be used.
Available versions of the PORTA-DAVIT: The Davit is available
in several different variations to the standard davit that we provide.
It is possible to get a davit in a winched version, extended radius 1500 mm (max WLL 350kg), and man ride applications (EN795 Class B Compliant).
Benefits of the PORTA-DAVIT:
• High tensile alloy compared with steel
• Rapid Assembly- 2 piece design
• Portable- 24kg assembled
• Store and transport in one heavy duty bag
• Radius adjustment (800-1200mm as standard)
Safety and in use features:
• Internal Bearing System - 360° rotation under finger tip control
• Suitable for clean environments
• Corrosion resistant (power coated) and in return low maintenance
• Manual handling compliance without mechanical aids
• CE approved
These sockets have been designed, developed and tested for safe use with Reid's equipment.
Socket Extension to reach over obstacles
Socket Extensions are just what you need to get the height on your davit to give additional height of lift or to reach over obstacles. With standard sizes that will make it possible to reach over safety rails and protective wall. They are very easy to use with handles for lifting/carrying and made with lightweight aluminium alloy. It is as simple as inserting the socket extension into a socket and then assemble the PORTA-DAVIT as normal on top of the socket extension. In some circumstances the socket extension and davit are assembled first and then lifted into the socket.
Available versions of the Socket Extensions The socket extensions come in three different sizes (500mm, 800mm, 1100mm

The unit is supplied complete in two heavy duty canvas bags for transportation, of weight 28kg and 15kg, and 2 weight baskets of 40kg each. Safety and Usage Features Suitable for clean environments Adjustable Feet Corrosion resistant (anodized and powered coated) and in return lower maintenance Manual handling compliance without mechanical aids CE approved
This new innovation allows the use of our PORTA-DAVIT range in situations not normally possible where there is infrequent use and no sockets are installed. It also allows for "building overhang" applications where sockets are not available or possible.
