BS8610:2017 Fully tested, easy to assemble, simple to rig and designed to last

Twin Track Davit™ 

The EdgeReil™ Twin Track Davit (patent pending) is a transformative abseil system that allows the users continuous horizontal and vertical access across the building facade. 

As an innovation of socketed davit the system can be incorporated continuously on the building perimeter, allowing a single ‘rig’ and ‘drop’ for the cleaning of an entire elevation.

The product is suitable for personnel and materials, lifting and lowering. SATRA tested to BS8610:2017 and with a safe working load of 300kg.

Product Details

The EdgeReil™ Twin Track system is a combined track and davit product manufactured from interlocking structural aluminium sections with connecting  316 stainless steel bearing based travellers.

This ‘twin track’ system reduces the design loads to substructure associated with conventional davits but still provides the parapet clearances to prevent the need to include service or factored load requirements in the design.
EdgeReil™ are typically supplied to project specific requirements and pre-assembled for quick and easy installation on site.
The EdgeReil™ Davit shoulder is removed for storage when not in use ensuring the system has a low visual impact. 
The system is most suitable for high-rise residential and hotel as well as student accommodation and office buildings.
It has a very low visual impact compared to other systems and generally avoids any roof penetrations, reducing the risks of cold spots and increasing the efficiency of the building.

With 3m fixing centres the system can be lower cost than conventional davit sockets but with lower ongoing LOLER and cleaning or maintenance costs.

Design and Inspection

All systems should be designed and installed by an experienced contractor.
Typical details, BIM files and technical data sheets are available however project specific guidance can be provided too. 

The factored forces can be as high as 15 - 21kN depending on the number of users for the system.
It is a legal requirement for these systems to be tested, maintained and certified annually.
This must be performed by a trained and competent individual at least once every 6 months or sooner if subject to adverse conditions or use. 

Approved partners for the design, installation and retest works are available on the Sayfa Group website. 
These partners  are trained by Sayfa Group and will help keep you compliant with detailed reporting and testing according to BS7883:2019 requirements.

Warranty Applications and Operating Manuals are also available from the Sayfa Group Web Site.
