Kee Access® cast iron fittings were developed to help satisfy the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 (previously DDA) and Building Regulation Approved Document M. Kee Systems' fittings are designed to provide a smooth and continuous handrail that is not cold to touch and complies with legislation covering disabled access.
Under the terms of the Equality Act, reasonable adjustments need to be made to public and commercial establishments to overcome physical barriers which prevent disabled access. The Building Regulations recommend an outside diameter tube size for installations of 40-45mm. Kee Access® components are specifically designed to give a smooth handrail with size 7 tube (outside diameter 42.4mm) ensuring compatibility with the regulations.
Fittings can be powder-coated in all RAL colours. Polyester powder-coating is recognised as suiting the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act. The broad colour range offers a variety of visual colour contrast options and is not cold to the touch. Not only will these colours help to comply with the requirements of the DDA, they will also enhance any handrail, guardrail, balustrade or a multitude of other applications.
Kee Access® incorporates 19 special fittings and the range is supplied with versatility, ease and speed of installation in mind. These fittings are suitable for retrofitting as the range includes an 'add-on' offset fitting to allow a new handrail to be added onto an existing structure of appropriate size.
Kee Systems can assist with all aspects of a project, including free technical assistance, site surveys and installation.
