Bosun Chair


Compliant with North American Standards

Bosun chairs provide suspended access for individual workers needing to perform tasks at elevation. Bosun chairs are ideal for suspended access situations with tight spaces or small openings.

The foot legs of this bosun chair fold up to provide additional access to spaces with very limited openings.

Additional Information

The hoist mounts directly below the seat of the bosun chair. Wire rope enters at the top of the mast between the roller and the inside of the mast tube. The space between the two rollers at the top of the mast is designed to accommodate a secondary wire rope on a different hoist.

Note: At all times, the wire ropes should enter the top of the mast in a straight vertical alignment. Do not bend the wire rope or change its direction. As the wire rope leaves the hoist, it moves downward in straight vertical movement through the space created on the bottom of the chair.
