Kee Lite® is made from a high-grade aluminium silicon magnesium alloy. This makes it a highly flexible, lightweight solution for creating safety barrier systems – in fact it’s only one-third the weight of iron fittings, with about 75% comparable tensile strength. Kee Lite aluminium fittings are also incredibly corrosion resistant, durable, economical and ideal for projects from contemporary to industrial.
Kee Lite® aluminium fittings are a lightweight, versatile, economical system ideal for constructing safety barriers, railings, racks, greenhouses, structural frameworks and more. Its recessed stainless steel grub screw is corrosion-resistant, and the components can be powder-coated for further protection.
Lightweight, Corrosion Resistant
All fittings are made from high-grade aluminium silicon magnesium alloy (A356-T6) creating a lightweight, corrosion-resistant alternative to steel. Kee Lite® is actually only one-third the weight of our iron components, with about 75% of the comparable tensile strength.
Easy to Assemble
All you need to install the Kee Lite® system is a standard hex key and tube cutters – no welding or threading is needed. This also means you don’t need hot-permits or specialised labour. In addition to this, everything can be assembled and tailored with ease on site.

Overview of Kee Lite® Railing
Used in some of the world's harshest environments
Kee Lite fittings are designed to stand the test of time in harsh environments. Kee Lite components have been used for decades in surroundings like the deserts of the Middle East or the shores of Great Britian. Trust the reliability of your safety solution to a product that has been tried and tested.
Kee Lite® Fittings
Kee Lite aluminium fittings are the foundation of all Kee Lite safety railings. In addition to railings, they can be used to assemble endless structures. Enjoy the lightweight of aluminium and the flexibility of building with fittings. Please find out more about our complete range of aluminium components.
Components are TÜV certified for strength, manufacturing quality and consistency.
Robust quality inspection procedure conforming to ISO 9001
Certified at our advanced testing facility
Kee Safety runs one of the world’s leading test and training centers at its UK headquarters. Run by a team of industry experts, this state-of-the-art facility ensures that Kee Safety products meet the needs of its customers. Kee Safety is committed to driving new innovation with the purpose of separating people from hazards.
The most common applications for Kee Lite fittings is handrail and guardrail, the contours designed into Kee Lite components give a smoother appearance and better look than typical non welded systems. Various other tubular-structures such as retail store fixtures, soft contained play systems, awning, fencing, machinery framework, can be economically produced with Kee Lite fittings.
Kee Lite structural slip-on tube fittings are made from a high grade Aluminium Silicon Magnesium Alloy. Kee Lite components are used in conjunction with BS EN 755 Aluminium tube to build structures of unlimited size and scope. Stainless steel grub screws attach the fittings securely around the tube. There is no welding, drilling, or bolting required when building with Kee Lite components. The only tools required for building Kee Lite structures are a tube cutter and a standard hex key.
Most types of Kee Lite fittings are available to suit tube sizes 33.7mm o/d (size 6), 42.4mm o/d (size 7) & 48.3mm o/d (size 8) and even a few to suit 60.3mm o/d (size 9). Please refer to brochure to check availability.
When constructing with Kee Lite fittings we recommend that you tighten the grub screw to 29 lbs./ft. or 39 Nm. This is approximately hand-tight. Apart from size 6 Kee Lite components. The setting for tightening the grub screw for this size components is 25 Nm ( 19 lb.ft). The theoretical design slip load ( factored ) per grub screw will be around 4.90 KN at this reduced torque setting.
No, the large diameter grub screws and the British Standard Thread used, along with the alloy of the component, give you the correct combination to create a strong mechanical joint between the fitting and the tube.
Kee Lite fittings use the following imperial hex key sizes. Size 6 (33.7mm o/d) uses ¼” A.F. (across the flats), Kee Lite components for sizes 7 to 9 (42.4mm o/d to 60.3mm o/d) uses 5/16” A.F. (across the flats). The ability to use ¼” and 5/16” hex keys makes building a structure with Kee Lite fittings quick and easy.
