Buildingtalk’s Video of the Week showcases the new range of Kee Klamp slope fittings. Designed for easier construction of handrails on staircases, slopes and other inclines, the Kee Klamp 11˚-30˚ and 30˚-45˚ fittings are both quick and easy to install.

Kee Klamp recently expanded its slope fitting range beyond the standard 11˚-30˚ offering with the introduction of 12 new types of tubular fittings. The expanded range allows for a streamlined installation and improves the aethetics of finished handrails that would have previously required multiple fittings.

The new range of slope fittings is available in the two most common sizes for handrails; size 7 (outside diameter 42.4mm) and size 8 (outside diameter 48.3mm).

Designed for use with steel tubing to BS EN 10255, Kee Klamp cast iron fittings support an axial load of 900kg per set screw tightened to a torque of 4Kgm (39 Nm). The fittings require no cutting or welding and can be manually adjusted to the required angle for the handrail.

Vernon Barry, Product Manager at Kee Safety, commented: “Kee Klamp carries over 80 years of expertise in developing safe, secure and cost-effective tubular fittings. Aesthetically pleasing handrails are sought after by specifiers, so we are pleased to have been able to fill this gap in the market with our new range.

Not only do the new Kee Klamp fittings tick the design box, they also provide builders with a quick, easy and cost-effective solution. The fittings are suited for use in a number of applications, including the highway, railways, retail and education sectors.”

Further details of the Kee Klamp slope fittings range are available on the company’s website.
