Unique hinge

Features of the Granada Foundation Davit include a unique hinge design (Patented) that allows maintenance of all parts to be undertaken from deck level. This innovation completely rules out any need for working at heights.

World-class components

To ensure that all aspects of our Offshore Foundation Davits meet the most stringent standards, we have a policy of sourcing components only from tried and tested suppliers. Bearings, for instance, are from Thyssen Krupp, winch components from Siemens and cable seals from Roxtec.
