A modular easy to install roof walkway system designed to the requirements of EN 516:2006.
Permanent roof walkway solution
Kee Walk® provides a safe, anti-slip, level walkway for anyone who needs to access a roof in the course of their work. It provides a clear demarcation route which protects the roof surface from unnecessary damage and uniformly distributes the pedestrian load across its surface.
Kee Walk® is designed for modern roof types including trapezoidal profile composite or built up and standing seam metal roofs. It can be used on flat, barrel and sloping roofs, with steps and a traverse option allowing access to be created for virtually any roof configuration from 0 to 35 degrees. The product complies with the test requirements of EN 516:2006.

EN516:2006 is the European standard for the test requirements of roof access walkways, which include measuring the deflection and residual deformation under specified loads. These criteria have been surpassed in all testing and as this is a harmonised standard allows the system to be CE marked under the European Construction Products Regulation No. 305/2011.
Bradfield College required a roof safety system to gain access to the main chiller room for the canteen. In recent years there has been no safety system until a temporary scaffold guardrail and walkway was recently put in place. Our installation division was asked to attend the site to advise on an appropriate, permanent, cost effective safety solution.
We recommended the following safety solutions:
KEEGUARD Free Standing Guard Rail – providing the operatives a safety guard rail whilst walking across the roof to access the plant chiller room
KEE WALK traversing modular walkway, adaptable, flexible on site, providing a safe walkway to the plant chiller room avoiding any slip, trip and fall hazards
Cat Ladder to gain access up to roof level safely
Bradfield College was looking for a permanent solution to a difficult access area that is regularly used. The products recommended and installed were exactly what the customer needed and have given the college a walkway that takes into account the tricky angled roof.
