Kee Klamp provides time and cost-saving benefits to highways

Due to ease of installation, adaptability, and high corrosion resistance, guard railing structures constructed using KEE KLAMP fittings from Kee Safety have been installed extensively on a number of main highways, including the M1, M2 and M6 Toll.  Whether it is maintenance teams accessing electrical boxes on the carriageway, pedestrians walking along bridges or contractors maintaining the network, a system proven to separate people from hazards is essential.

“We are noticing an increase into the amount of highway projects specifying our KEE KLAMP fittings” says Vernon Barry, Product Manager at Kee Safety.  “For contractors, a system that provides easy installation and is cost effective is an attractive solution.  The KEE KLAMP range meets both requirements and results in a safe barrier system for those accessing highways.”

A-one+ Integrated Highway Services recently installed approximately 20 KEE KLAMP Edge Protection schemes in the area 12 Network on the M1 Dearnside Underpass near Barnsley. Mike Evans of A-one+ Integrated Highway Services commented: “One of the company’s strengths was to deliver at short notice. This was hugely beneficial to us as it allowed issues at our end to be resolved.”

KEE KLAMP components are versatile and suitable for use in a variety of areas where tubular structures or barriers are required. The off-the-shelf product range is one of the largest on the market, providing fittings for every possible application.  All fittings are available with a combination of protective coatings applied to achieve a longer life and a better corrosion resistance. This is vital for structures in areas which may be prone to a high level of weathering or rusting, and structures which are in difficult places to access and work on.

KEE KLAMP components can be installed using a standard hex key with each fitting incorporating an integral set screw to lock the respective fitting safely and securely onto the tube. Not only does this method create a strong, stable and safe guard rail structure, it also eliminates the need for time-consuming welding or specialist skills.
