Free-standing Kee Guard System, Superior Rooftop Fall Protection

Unique system

Each system’s unique design provides permanent edge protection without the need to mechanically fix the system through the roofing membrane or building’s structure. Their simple design provides unrivaled strength, stability and safety and overcomes the problems associated with traditional systems such as having to drill and puncture the roof membrane which can lead to potential penetrative water damage and noise disturbance during installation.

Durable system

Kee Safety's guardrail connections are supplied with a galvanised finish carried out to BS EN ISO 1461 and ASTM A53: Hot Dip Galvanised Coatings Specification and Testing Methods, giving an average coating of between 65-85 microns. All cast clamps have Thread Koat applied to all tapped holes. All set screws are carbon steel and have Kee Koat protection applied to ensure minimal maintenance.

Versatile system

All systems have been specially designed to fit any shape and size of flat and pitched roofs (up to 10° pitch), even circular designs. The system can also cope with changes in levels, roof falls and difficult details such as ductwork passing over the roof edge and cable trays/plant mounted at the roof edge. The flexibility of the counterweight & Kee Klamp design allows the systems to be used on plant congested or complex detailed roofs.

Wind Speed Calculator

One of the key points set out in the BS 13700 states that when you specify and install a permanent counterweighted guardrail, you need to carry out a site specific wind calculations. This means you need to take into account location, height of building and exposure level.

Kee Safety offers a FREE wind calculation to the new BS 13700 standard and issues the FREE report upon purchase of a Kee Guard system.

As a manufacturer of counterweighted edge protection, Kee Safety naturally ensures that our range of Kee Guard free standing rooftop guardrail systems comply with all relevant global standards and legislation,  including the BS 13700:2021.

Our team can help you with a site-specific wind speed calculation, as well as provide assistance throughout the entire project.

Kee Guard Case Study SG
We installed Kee Guard Freestanding Edge Protection on a roof of the Ikea Goyang store, South Korea. The Kee Safety Team was involved in all aspects of the project, from designing to installing the system. Kee Safety provided us with wind load calculations and construction drawings, and also supervised the installation on-site. We were impressed with high quality of the product and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Kee Guard system again.
