Kee Safety has announced the release of modular, off-the-shelf step-overs, designed to offer a safe means of access where obstructions exist on a roof.
Ideal for a range of roof types and surfaces (concrete, membrane, metallic and composite), Kee Walk® Step-overs are considerate of changes in roof levels, ensuring a safe, anti-slip, level walking surface across roofs.
The leading global supplier of fall protection solutions’ Step-overs come in kit form, to cater for differing height requirements and are delivered pre-assembled for ease of installation.
Each kit comes with a double handrail and toe-boards for additional safety, a choice of nylon or aluminium treads and base feet options to suit different roof types.
Kee Safety Fall Protection Product Manager, Stuart Owen, said: “Many of today’s roofs contain a variety of trip hazards and changes in roof level, making safe access difficult, if not impossible.”
“Step-overs easily accommodate changes in level or direction, and can fit over pipework or equipment. There is the ability to meet virtually any design requirement, with the end result always being a safe, secure and compliant access platform.”
The step-overs feature adjustable step sections and non-penetrative fixing options, whilst having the flexibility to not just protect those accessing the roof, but also the roof sheet also, with unnecessary foot traffic and potential damage avoided as it provides an obviously defined access path.
Kee Walk® Step-overs are made using Kee Klamp® tubular fittings, with a strong, stable and, all importantly, safe structure assured. This method eradicates any need for welding, which can take precious time, or specialist skills or tools, meaning contractors are saved both time and money on site.
They are compatible with other products in the Kee Safety range, providing a total fall protection and safe access solution and for installations in which a bespoke option is sought, Kee Safety can deliver a totally customisable solution.
