Mounted on steel bases on the roof, the davit system consists of aluminum or steel arms that can be dismantled and moved to a different set of bases on the roof to access a different area of the building. Davits are used in conjunction with a self-powered cradle that can go up to 8 meters in length. After use, the davits and the cradle can be stored in dedicated areas so they are out of sight, allowing the whole roof area to be used for other purposes.
