There are many situations in the industrial workplace where it is necessary to ensure that the workforce is “separated from hazards” for its own safety. Kee Safety specialises in providing guardrails and barriers that provide safe access to hazardous areas.
Guardrails are especially important in areas which are accessed by both people and vehicles; many accidents in the workplace involve transport, so it is vital to separate people from vehicles. The most effective way to ensure that workers and vehicles can move safely around the industrial plant is to provide a safe demarcated route for the workers to walk along, with protective barriers and guardrails on each side.
Guardrails made from fittings
Kee Safety guardrails are constructed using slip-on tubular fittings. Our railings are made from galvanised KEE KLAMP fittings or aluminium KEE LITE fittings and offer a highly cost effective and easy to use systems.
Guardrails are often powder coated, usually in the Safety Yellow colour, to provide additional visible demarcation.
Using fittings to construct guardrails and barriers has many advantages over traditional fabrication methods:
- No welding so no requirement for Hot Works Permits
- No need for cutting or threading tube on site
- No specialised tools required for installation
- No requirement for skilled labour
- All tube and fittings can be powder coated
Guardrails and Safety Gates
Combining spring loaded self-closing safety gates with the barrier or guardrail adds another level of safety. Workers are made aware that they are leaving a safe area when they pass through the gate.
KEE GATE safety gates are tested in accordance with the EN 13374 Class A, EN ISO 14122 Part 3 & Part 4 and OSHA. The gates have passed reliability testing such as Salt Spray Testing to ensure the coating's performance and Life Cycle Testing which proved durability by withstanding 50,000 open and close cycles through 90 degrees. KEE GATE is quick and easy to install and can be adjusted to exactly fit the opening.
