A Lightweight Alternative to Steel Structures with an Aesthetic Look and Design
Since 1934, Kee Safety has been dedicated to providing the world with a versatile, economical, and durable method of building tubular structures. Kee Lite & Kee Klamp fittings are available in more countries, more styles, more sizes, and more colors than any other brand of structural fitting.
Kee Lite components are a versatile product that are used in the construction of railings, safety barriers, racks, greenhouses, structural framework, and thousands of other uses. Large, recessed stainless steel grub screws resist corrosion and thread stripping, with maximum surface contact with tube, while providing a smooth appearance.
Lightweight and Corrosion Resistant
Kee Lite components are made from high grade Aluminium Silicon Magnesium Alloy (A356-T6) which provide for a lightweight, corrosion resistant, and strong alternative for fabrication of tubular structures. Due to the superior corrosion resistance, Kee Lite components offer extremely low maintenance in outdoor settings. Kee Lite components are only one-third the weight of our iron components, with about 75% of comparable tensile strength.
Kee Safety has the ability to supply off-the-shelf anodised KEE LITE fittings and tube. Anodising provides the extra corrosion protection needed for the harsh environments like the Middle East.
Kee Lite components are installed using only a standard hex key – no threading or welding required. No headaches about hot-permits, specialised labour or equipment. A standard hex key and tube cutters are the only tools required to create strong, rigid structures. Recessed grub screws, tightened by the hex key, firmly lock the tube into the fitting. No pre-fabrication of tube structures in shop – everything can be assembled and built on site. They are also reusable should you wish to dismantle or redesign your structure.
Fabricating and building with Kee Lite components saves time, money, and resources. View our featured Installations to learn more about how Kee Safety can help bring your projects in on time, and under budget! Contact us today with your application for a free quote.
Kee Lite Anodised handrails installed at Razeen Wastewater Treatment Plant, UAE.
Kee Safety LLC designed, supplied and installed more than 500 linear metres of Kee Lite Anodised handrails for the Razeen Labour City Wastewater Treatment Plant in Abu Dhabi, the UAE.
The head works are designed for 16,000 m³/day average daily flow and peak flow of 62,200 m³/day. The biological process (aeration tanks and settling tanks) is separated into two lines. The treated sewage effluent (TSE) is re-used for irrigation purposes.
The speed of installation was very important to the Contractor and as Kee Lite requires NO welding we could in most cases exceed their expectations. The lifetime of the Kee Lite handrail is expected to exceed the operational life of the Plant due to all components and tube being anodised to a minimum of 25 microns. Even in these harsh conditions where toxic gases such as Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) are present, the Kee Lite handrails will be structurally sound for many years.
Kee Lite Advantages:
Speed of installation
Fully adjustable to meet on site requirements
High grade silicon magnesium alloy safety components
TUV approved for quality, strength and durability
Opportunity to remove damaged section without removing entire handrailing
Installation is achieved using an allen key and pipe cutter
Kee Safety has the ability to supply off the shelf anodised KEE LITE handrails and guardrails. Anodising our standard KEE LITE tubular fittings and tube provides the extra corrosion protection needed for the harsh environments like the Middle East.
Anodising is a reacted finish that is integrated with the underlying aluminium for total bonding and unmatched adhesion.
Benefits of Anodising
Durability - anodised products have an extremely long life span and offer significant economic advantages through maintenance and operating savings.
Colour Stability - exterior anodic coatings provide good stability to ultraviolet rays, do not chip or peel, and are easily repeatable.
Easy Maintenance - scars and wear from handling, installation, frequent surface dirt cleaning and usage are virtually non-existent. Rinsing or mild soap and water cleaning usually will restore an anodised surface to its original appearance.
Health and Safety - anodising is a relatively safe process to apply. An anodised finish is chemically stable, will not decompose; is non-toxic; and is heat-resistant. The anodising process is a reinforcement of a naturally occurring oxide process, it is non-hazardous and produces no harmful or dangerous by-products.
