Kee Access® and Kee Klamp® fittings from Kee Systems were supplied to the University of Brighton and used to create a DDA-compliant handrail system at the Falmer campus to help ensure the safety of teachers, visitors and 5000 students.

Background

In 2014, the University began work on a project to provide temporary accommodation on the site of a recently-demolished building which was being turned into new student teaching facilities which would incorporate seminar rooms, open plan offices and meeting rooms. As part of the project, it was important to include a handrail system which complied with DDA regulations to provide convenient ramped access to the new building’s facilities. Kent-based contractor, Camier Groundwork Ltd specified Kee Access® and Kee Klamp® fittings.

Products supplied

Camier Groundwork installed a powder-coated blue Kee Access® handrail system up the ramp. The blue colour was to ensure the handrail system would stand out from the yellow stock brick wall capping, the grey barface paving on the landings and the black tarmac on the ramp itself. The powder-coating also ensures that the handrails are not ‘cold to touch,’ thus adhering to DDA requirements.

Once the system was in place, a galvanised steel Kee Klamp® handrail system was installed to the perimeter of the site to replace the hoarding.

Client feedback

“After thorough research of several different options for this project, we narrowed it down to Kee Systems” comments Dean Camier, Director of Camier Groundwork Ltd. “From the moment we contacted Kee Systems, we were impressed by them, which was mainly down to their professional approach and friendly nature. Once we got to talk about the solutions they offer, we soon realised that they were the perfect choice for this project. Both Kee Access® and Kee Klamp® are high quality products, and would meet the demand for a DDA compliance system. What’s more, Kee Systems was able to supply the products quickly and efficiently, which was extremely helpful, as we were under pressure to complete the project in a short space of time. We found the Kee Klamp® and Kee Access® easy to install and will definitely be using Kee Systems on future projects.”
