Kee Systems has supplied its market-leading range of safety solutions to the Veolia Water treatment plant in Wiltshire, providing effective protection for maintenance teams, ensuring full compliance with current health and safety requirements.
The Tidworth-based Veolia Water treatment plant provides water and sewerage services to both domestic and commercial customers in the local surrounding areas.
The plant sought after a safety system that would meet current regulations, which could be installed quickly and efficiently; with the facility running 24/7, it could not be shut down during installation.
Ash Safety was the main contractor for this project; having worked with Kee Systems previously, a solution was specified including more than 600m of Kee Klamp® guardrailing for around the water tanks, as well as seven Kee Gates and 12m of BSG Open Mesh Flooring to cover the open areas and build walkways.
Sales Director at Ash Safety, Peter Styth, said: “We regularly work with Kee Systems as the team provides excellent customer service and a thorough knowledge of safety, inventory and products.
“The new handrailing system for this project has contributed to reduced cost, improved safety and better communications with all parties concerned.
“The Kee Systems team was available at short notice, responding to our challenging demands, and enabled us to target improved completion dates to ensure the future safety of employees working in a demanding environment.
“From senior management to the installation and deliver teams, the service has been excellent, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kee Systems for similar projects.”
The Kee Klamp® range offers superb versatility and is suited to a range of guardrail applications. Manufactured from galvanised cast iron, the system securely joins structural steel tube into most conceivable configurations, across a whole host of angles.
Designed for ease and speed of installation, the components entirely eliminate the need for hot works on site, resulting in significant cost and time savings.
Neither specialist labour nor tools are needed, as Kee Klamp® fittings can be installed using a standard hex key, with each fitting incorporating an internal set screw to lock the respective fitting safely and securely onto the tube.
Complying with BS EN 1562 & BS EN 1563, the Kee Klamp® fittings are TÜV certified for strength, manufacturing quality and consistency.
