Kee Access® fittings are designed to create safety handrailing that complies with legislation covering disabled access
A cost effective solution
Under the terms of the Equality Act (previous Disability Discrimination Act - DDA), all commercial and public building owners in the UK are obliged to provide non-discriminatory access. The KEE ACCESS range of tubular fittings is designed specifically to meet the requirements of the Building Regulations Part M, British Standard BS 8300 and the Equaility Act.
KEE ACCESS fittings 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 of the Building Regulations Part M.
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 an existing railing system.

Simplicity of Design
KEE ACCESS fittings have been designed to suit BS 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 handrail safety solution compliant with legislation covering disabled access.
During refurbishment of Staines railway station in Surrey, a new pedestrian handrail system was installed, using Kee Access® components. Helping to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), the new system was fitted alongside a new access ramp at the entrance to ensure safe and easy access for all passengers using the station. Guardrails were finished in an orange colour, ensuring an attractive appearance whilst benefiting the sight-impaired user.
Installation of the safety guardrailing system was part of a renovation programme to improve access to the station, specified by railway engineering contractor, GRAMM Interlink Rail. “Safety was our foremost concern when selecting the access ramp at the front of the station, and Kee Safety was just right for the job” says Steve Lee, at GRAMM Interlink Rail. “The Kee Access® range meets the specification provided by the DDA. It’s also a solution that’s quick and easy to put together, making it a very cost-effective approach”.
The structures were installed by Kee Safety’s own design and installation team.
