Kee® Access components for compliance with legislation covering disabled access
Kee® Access components are designed to create safety handrailing that satisfy the requirements of the UK Equality Act ( previously DDA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
A cost effective solution
Under the terms of the Disability Legislation, commercial and public building owners should provide non-discriminatory access. The Kee® Access range of tubular fittings is designed specifically to meet the requirements of the UK Building Regulations Part M, British Standard BS 8300, the UK Equality Act ( previously DDA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Kee® Access components have been designed to give smooth handrail with size 7 tube (outside diameter 42.2mm). All fittings can be powder coated in a choice of RAL colours to meet visibility and `not cold to touch’ requirements.
Kee® Access is ideal for creating new barriers, but the system can also be used as a retrofit solution, due to its add-on components which allow a new handrail to be added on to existing railing system.
Kee® Access Features
Made of cast iron to EN ISO 1461
Combining 42.2mm handrail with 48.3mm uprights ensures a rigid, sturdy installation
Colour coating ensures a `not cold to touch’ finish
Add on components allow non compliant systems to be upgraded
Cost effective to install – no welding, threading or bolting required
Simplicity of Design
Kee® Access components have been designed to suit EN 10255 (ISO 65) steel tubes. Any Kee® Access railing system can be easily installed with a hex tool and tube cutters, and is therefore easily assembled without specialised workers or equipment, saving you both time and money. Kee® Access is the perfect hand rail safety solution.
