Overview

Kee Systems supplied a range of safety solutions to the Veolia Water treatment plant in Wiltshire to provide effective protection for maintenance teams, ensuring full compliance with current health and safety requirements.

The plant required a safety system that would meet current regulations, and one which could be installed quickly and efficiently. Ash Safety was the main contractor for this project, and having worked with Kee Systems in the past, specified a solution that included over 600m of Kee Klamp® guardrailing for around the water tanks, seven Kee Gates, and 12m of BSG open mesh flooring to cover the open areas and build walkways.

Kee Klamp®

The Kee Klamp® range offers outstanding versatility and is suited to a range of guardrail applications. Manufactured from galvanised cast iron, the Kee Klamp® system securely joins structural steel tube into almost any conceivable configuration across a variety of angles. Designed with ease and speed of installation in mind, the components completely eliminate the need for hot works on site, resulting in significant cost and time savings. Neither specialist labour nor tools are required as Kee Klamp® fittings can be installed using a standard hex key, with each fitting incorporating an internal set screw to lock the respective fitting safely and securely onto the tube. Complying with BS EN 1562 and BS EN 1563, Kee Klamp® fittings are TÜV certified for strength, manufacturing quality and consistency.

Kee Gate

Designed to work both internally and externally, Kee Gate ensures maintenance, inspection and warehouse staff can fulfill their jobs, follow best practices and comply with current safety standards, without putting their safety at risk. Kee Gates are spring-loaded so can automatically close behind the user, providing an added level of security and overcoming the potential for human error. This type of system is the preferred solution to chains, bars or sliding tubes, as these traditional forms of protection can lead to a hazardous void when used incorrectly. As well as being compliant to BS EN ISO 14122-3:2016, Kee Gate also complies with the requirements of EN 13374 Class A, and is CE marked to EN 1090.

Testimonial

“I regularly work with Kee System as the team provides excellent customer service and a thorough knowledge of safety, inventory and products” said Peter Styth, Sales Director at Ash Safety. “The new handrailing system for this project has contributed to reduced cost, improved safety and better communications with all parties concerned. The Kee Systems team was available at short notice, responding to our challenging demands, and enabled us to target improved completion dates to ensure the future safety of employees working in a demanding environment. From senior management to the installation and deliver teams, the service has been excellent, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kee Systems for similar projects.”
