“REID’s new PD1000 develops further reach...”
07 September 2010
Engineering consultants approached REID Lifting for a very difficult confined space application; to launch a sailing boat from the garden of a client in a beautiful Devonshire coastal village location – over a wall, around a tree and down onto the tidal esREID used their new and unique PORTA-DAVIT 1000, aluminium lifting davit, as the base product, customising a lightweight, portable lifting system that provided a 2.5m radius, WLL 250kg rated Davit system operable by just one person that was easily assembled, operated, dismantled, bagged and stored; leaving the client with a beautiful garden uncluttered by any fixed lifting system.
REID was able to supply a fixed, flush mounted socket behind the 200+ year old garden retaining wall and customise the new PD1000 to develop the WLL250kg, 2.5m radius solution that worked perfectly, as shown.
REID MD Nick Battersby said, “It was a great pleasure to be involved in a very personal application in such a beautiful location. This development now gives us great potential for approaching the sailing fraternity and the Marina Companies with some excellent lifting products designed for their needs, as well as our more traditional Water & Waste Water clients.”
This successful development builds on Degremont Egypt’s selection of the REID PD1000 as a solution for their lifting challenges where heavier Water Treatment pumps ruled out previous existing solutions.
