Additional Details

Pedestals: Provide a structural connection to the rooftop structure. Spider offers a complete range of pedestals to meet the needs of any rooftop.

Sockets: Connect a davit to the roof equipment. Sockets can connect to a pedestal or directly to the building structure with an embed or thru bolt assembly.

Mobile sockets: An alternative to permanently mounted sockets. Mobile sockets can move from one pedestal to another allowing a lower profile roof installation.

Embed and thru bolt assemblies: Allow a pedestal or socket to be bolted directly to the top of a roof structure (concrete, wood, steel, etc.) Embed assemblies are used prior to roof completion and are embedded into the roof structure. If the roof structure has already been completed, consider using a thru bolt assembly. Thru bolt assemblies are used after the roof has been completed and apply force to either side of the roof structure.

Additional Details

Portable Davit Transfer Cart: Portable davits are often moved from one pedestal to another or between different roof levels. This cart allows users to relocate the davit with minimal force while maintaining a low center of mass. (Note: Only for use with 140 in. tall davit.)

Erection Winches: Erection winches are used to raise a davit to an upright position and safely lower the davit during the removal process. One winch can be used for multiple davits.
