Support Systems For Suspended Platforms
FLS sockets and davits provide the option of roof-rigged or ground-rigged (code permitting) self-powered platforms with safe access and egress on the roof. Davit and socket systems are implemented worldwide, easy to operate, economical and readily customized. Socket systems are generally exposed, but can be recessed below the roof surface where a public space requires an aesthetic solution.
Sockets and davits offer the advantage of allowing maintenance personnel to board the stage while it rests on the rooftop and can be designed to work on buildings with multiple levels (terraces, balconies, etc.).
Davits are a practical permanent suspension system when used with a self-powered platform. Constructed of high-strength aluminum alloy, our davit systems boast a patented, lightweight strong extrusion.
Standard Socket Systems
Sockets are galvanized steel embeds fixed to a building’s structure for safe convenient rigging locations for our davits. Socket systems are generally exposed, but can be recessed below the roof surface where a public space requires an aesthetic solution.
