Original Press Release
New Kee Access® Smooth Handrails Systems are ADA-Compliant
Press release date: May 1, 2008
(MAY 2008) - Kee Safety, Inc., Buffalo, New York announces the introduction of its new Kee Access safety railing systems to build smooth handrails for stairs, ramps, walkways and other areas where it is necessary to conform to the "barrier-free" requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other applicable state and local building codes. Built using the company's Kee Klamp® structural, slip-on railing components, Kee Access railings provide a smooth, contiguous gripping surface throughout its entire length.
The new Kee Access railing system is comprised of a framework of horizontal bars supported by vertical, upright posts assembled from the modular fittings and standard 1-1/4" Schedule 40 pipe. Constructed of iron for strength and durability, all railing components are galvanized for corrosion resistance and provide a cost-effective and labor saving alternative to welded rails, Kee Safety states. No welding, drilling or threading is required for installation, and a variety of base and flange fittings from the Kee Klamp line can be used for installations requiring setting the uprights into concrete.
The new Kee Access railing system can be designed for new construction or to add onto an existing pipe structure by using offset fittings available with the Kee Access system. The railings can be powder coated to any RAL color, integrating with the premises environment and color scheme, the company states.
