Product Announcement from Kee Safety Inc.
Kee Safety, Inc. introduces its new Kee® Walk, a safe, anti-slip walkway for workers accessing a roof during construction or maintenance. Contrasting with the roof's surface, it provides a clear demarcation route which protects the roof from unnecessary damage and uniformly distributes the pedestrian load across its surface. Easy to install with pre-assembled standard lengths supplied from stock, Kee Walk is designed for modern roofs with composite, trapezoidal metal profile, and standing seam metal roofs. The flexible, modular system can be adjusted on-site and accommodates flat, barrel or sloping roofs, with steps and a traverse option allowing access to be created for virtually any roof configuration from 0 to 35 degrees.
Kee Walk systems are assembled using lightweight aluminum bearer bars and high-grade nylon treads that feature a raised, rough surface for enhanced slip resistance in adverse weather conditions with open treads for fast drainage of water. Both the bearer bars and treads are recyclable.
Pre-assembled step configurations in 5-ft. and 10-ft. lengths require only slight on-site positioning and alignment. The standard steps are joined together with a 4-inch straight connector which attaches to the bearing bars. No bespoke parts are used, and fixings do not damage the roof surface. The new Kee Walk system needs only a minimal number of brackets to install a complete system.
