The Adjustable Barrel Mount Sleeve Davit makes it possible to provide a safe access solution where this would previously have been very difficult. This can also be used to form a lifting point onto a trench sheet up-stand. If used with very light duty sheets such as M6 then a wooden sleeper should be used behind the sheets so as to increase the allowable bending moment.

The Adjustable Barrel Mount Sleeve Davit can be used on any items from 0mm to 610mm providing the allowable bending moment meets 10170 NM. So for concrete abutments, coffer dams, trench boxes and many other areas. This offers a simple solution capable of taking two fall arrest devices such as a man riding winch and a fall arrest retrieve block for a single person entry.
