Kee Safety Ltd has developed Kee® i-bolt, a comprehensive range of Class A1 anchor devices and accessories designed to offer effective fall arrest protection for those carrying out high level window, facade cleaning or other building maintenance operations from an open window position.
The Kee® i-bolt range comprises two product brands named Ringanka and Keyanka. Independently tested at the NEL (National Engineering Laboratory, East Kilbride), Ringanka and Keyanka products conform to EN795, BS7883 and ISO14567 and are CE Approved to the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Directive. Their use in appropriate applications will ensure workers, facility managers and building owners comply with the requirements of the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
Ringanka includes fixed eyebolts in a choice of three different sizes for straightforward and secure wall installation. The eyebolt provides a fixed anchoring point, either external or internally within the building, where workers can attach a lanyard and safety harness to ensure safe access and personal protection in the event of an accidental slip or fall. Available in a polished stainless steel, galvanised or plastic-coated finish to blend with prestige building applications and different interior schemes, the eyebolt can be securely fitted to different building fabrics, including brick, concrete, masonry and steel. The eyebolts are supplied with knurled inserts and resin capsules to allow easy installation and removal for periodic inspection. A PPE warning disc is also provided as part of the range.
Keyanka is a removable safety eyebolt offering an unobtrusive solution to traditional eyebolts in more prestigious buildings. The anchor socket is permanently installed but discreetly covered by a white plastic cover. When required for use, the cover is removed and the special key-type eyebolt, typically attached to the workers lanyard, is inserted into the socket hole. A simple key action activates a spring locking movement to provide a fast and safe attachment whilst allowing 180° rotation to suit usage requirements.
The new Kee® i-bolt range adds to the growing selection of safety products that Kee Safety offers. As a leading supplier of fall protection solutions, Kee Safety also provides a range of collective and personal protection products including KeeGuard®, Kee Dome®, Kee Anchor® and Kee® Roofpoint. The technical team can offer practical assistance in all aspects of design, installation and compliance with relevant standards for each product.
