Globestock to Launch Davit at Liftex 2018

We will launch our new davit at this year's Liftex, Milton Keynes, 14-15th November, where we will exhibit our extensive range of products for confined space access & rescue, working at height, and load arrest.

Stuart Raby, our Business Development Manager, has this to say:

“We’re really excited to be taking part in LEEA’s flagship event. Globestock have not exhibited at Liftex before, so we’re especially looking forward to it. This is a great opportunity for industry professionals to get to know us a little better and have a closer look at our products, from bestsellers to exciting new launches”.

  • Personnel Davit

Alongside our established range of highly-regarded safety equipment, Liftex 2018 coincides with the launch of new products for Globestock. Stuart elaborates:

“As well as bringing along the range of trusted, dependable products that we’re recognised for, we’re going to be showcasing our smart new, British-manufactured, G.Davit and accompanying bases; a two-person davit system that is certified for lifting both personnel and loads.

It’s great to be able to finally share Globestock’s new davit with the industry. We’re very proud of our British-made equipment, so we’re inviting everybody at the show to swing by the stand to find out more.”

Our team will be welcoming visitors on stand B6 throughout the course of the event. In the meantime, you can get in touch on +44 (0) 1691 654 966 /



Product Launch: G.Davit

We are pleased to announce the launch of our eagerly awaited, British-designed and made, G.Davit.

The G.Davit is a lightweight EN795 + TS16415 anchorage device for confined space access and working at height situations, for lifting personnel or loads.

This exciting new davit system has been designed to be safer and simpler to use than current models on the market. One way that this is achieved is by enabling both the winch and the retrieval block to be mounted on the same side of the mast, keeping the operator away from the edge.

  • Personnel Davit

Here’s what Viv Lewis, General Manager of Globestock, has to say about the latest addition to the range:

“We’ve spent decades designing and manufacturing quality safety equipment, and further developing our expertise in the industry. Over time we noticed a gap in the market for a British-made davit anchor system that is rated for both personnel and loads, which can be used by more than one person at the same time.  So, we set our accomplished Design and Development team the task of engineering one.”

The G.Davit may be used as an anchor by more than one person simultaneously, providing the MWL is not exceeded, and is rated for both personnel (200kg) and load lifting (250kg).

It has been designed by our in-house D&D department and is manufactured at our engineering facility near the Welsh border. Click here for more information.

Viv goes on to say:

“A key feature of the G.Davit’s design is that it allows a rescue device to be located on the same side of the mast as the operator, giving easy access to the rescue equipment if called upon, without risk of the operator becoming unbalanced.

We also gave a lot of attention to the cable routing, designing a system that keeps cable away from the lifting area. As well as all this, the davit had to be adaptable, light and portable, and easy to assemble without tools.

The end result is a product that we are extremely proud of, and we are confident you will be too.”
