KEE KLAMP guardrails have been installed to provide safe access to warehouse racking at a busy manufacturing plant. Management of the plant requested an additional guardrail to protect warehouse operatives working at height when they access the top level of the racking. Guardrails used on the warehouse shelving needed to be easily dismantled if required.
KEE KLAMP guardrails offered a competitively priced alternative to a locally fabricated system, shorter lead time, quick installation and easy on-site modification. Ability to quickly replace damaged sections of the guardrail was very important - in a busy warehouse where forklift trucks are used, barriers or even racking can become damaged so possibility to replace parts easily, without having to cut, weld or re-work steelwork was very important.
KEE KLAMP fittings offer a variety of joining and mounting options, with both side and top mounted base supports used on different parts of the warehouse racking on this project. The guardrail was built in sturdy bays of double uprights, allowing the individual sections to be able to be lifted out by simply undoing the KEE KLAMP fittings hexagon socket screws using a standard hex key.
Additional rails were fitted at the end of the storage racks to ensure the guardrail providing fall protection was up to the required height.
To enhance the look and corrosion resistance of the guardrail, tube and fittings were powder-coated to match the existing warehouse racking colour scheme.
As well as guardrails and barriers protecting workers in factories and warehouses, Kee Safety now has a whole portfolio of products enabling staff safely to access racking, mezzanines and loading bays including self-closing gates, pallet gates and bespoke access platforms.
