Kee Klamp® Tubular Fittings
A Cost Effective Alternative to Welding with Unlimited Applications
Since 1934, Kee Safety has been dedicated to providing the world with a versatile, economical, and durable method of building tubular structures. KEE KLAMP tubular fittings are available in more countries, more styles, more sizes, and more colours than any other brand of tubular fitting.
Galvanised Steel Components
Steel tube is an inherently efficient structural component. It is strong, has no sharp corners, and is readily available. The difficulty in using steel tube to form structures arises when joining. Threaded tube must be supplied in set lengths making for zero flexibility in installation. Welding is labour intensive, requires a highly skilled workforce, and specialised equipment.
The answer is KEE KLAMP fittings. The underlying principle is simple but highly effective: use slip-on fittings to create versatile and rigit tubular structures.
Features & Benefits of the Kee Klamp® Handrail
- Made of galvanised cast iron to BS EN ISO 1461
- High corrosion resistance
- Quick installation
- No welding, so no hot work permits required
- No threading or bolting, so no special tools required
- A flexible system that can accommodate on site variations
- Cost effective to install as it is quick to install and only low skilled workforce is required
- TUV certified for strength, manufacturing quality and consistency
The Kee Klamp® Fitting
The engineering principle behind the KEE KLAMP fitting is the foundation of the most versatile tube connection system available. There are many variations of tubular fittings to suit a wide range of applications, providing the versatility to achieve any structural configuration.
KEE KLAMP tubular fittings are galvanised iron castings manufactured to the requirements of BS EN 1562 & 1563. We have engineered a range of fittings to suit different tube sizes, from 17.5mm to 60.3mm. Hexagon socket set screws firmly lock the fitting to the tube. Set screws are manufactured in case hardened steel and are protected against corrosion with KEE KOAT; alternatively, stainless steel screws are available.
A KEE KLAMP fitting (size 5 to 9) can support an axial load of 2000 lbs (900 kg). per grub screw with the grub screw tightened to a torque of 29 lbs. ft.(39 Nm); rating includes a safety factor of 2:1.
New Kee Klamp® Slope Fittings
We have expanded our KEE KLAMP fittings range and introduced 12 new components. The new KEE KLAMP fittings have been designed for installation on steeper gradients, they offer builders and specifiers an aesthetically pleasing option.
The new KEE KLAMP slope fittings have been designed to enhance the building of guardrail along staircases and ramps, particularly when the slope is greater than 30 degrees. The new range introduces single fittings to cater for situations where currently a combination of fittings is required. Not only does this improve the aesthetics of the finished guardrail but it also allows for a quicker and easier installation.
New KEE KLAMP slope fittings are available in two sizes: size 7 (outside diameter 42.4mm) and size 8 (outside diameter 48.3mm).
