High Engineering's design and installation expertise maximizes the utility of socket, davit, and tieback façade access solutions.
When performing façade maintenance tasks, such as window washing, caulking, and painting on tall buildings, workers are often suspended many stories above the ground. High Engineering is uniquely equipped to provide complaint, safe and effective solutions for work that requires davit systems and anchorages for connecting suspension lines and fall arrest equipment.
Davit systems are usually found on buildings taller than 130 feet or buildings that have unique or complex façade features that require maintenance such as balconies, sunshades, awnings, and overhangs. High Engineering davit systems include sockets, bases and arms and are often used with suspended scaffold equipment and tieback anchors. All systems are designed and installed to meet CSA Z271 “Safety Code for Suspended Platforms” and CSA Z91 “Health and Safety Code for Suspended Equipment Operations”.

Rooftop Maintenance and Window Washing Safety
High Engineering’s pivotal role in developing CSA and ANSI standards and a design methodology based on 20 years experience provides short lead times and clear practical solutions. Our process usually begins with an initial consultation that includes onsite visit and review of building drawings. High Engineering then determines the most economical layouts for tie-back anchors, sockets and davit arms. Once the design is approved, our project management team works with clients on the mobilization of crews for installation, testing, and training. We then facilitate a plan to conduct the required inspections, re-testing and re-certifications.
