Contractor: ISG Dean+Bowes
Type of works: installation of Kee Guard® roof-edge protection system.
Maintenance crews accessing the rooftop of Cheltenhams Primark building can work in complete safety when accessing rooftop plant due to the recent installation of a KeeGuard® roof edge protection system from Kee® Safety Limited.
National fit-out and refurbishment specialist ISG Dean+Bowes was contracted to carry out a series of internal and external alterations at the recently opened Primark store on Cheltenhams high street, including the installation of new air-conditioning plant. Recognising that the KeeGuard® system can provide effective permanent protection against falls from height, ISG Dean+Bowes specified the system to assure optimum safety for operatives servicing and maintaining this and other equipment.
As a result, the KeeGuard® roof-edge protection system has been installed to surround the buildings rooftop plant area. Additional features include a self-closing gate to enhance fall protection and still allow ease of access. The new KeeGuard® system is also quick and easy to erect, which kept installation noise and disruption to a minimum for customers at the high-street store.
The KeeGuard® system allows the guardrail to be placed in the saddle of an open component, making system assembly up to twice as fast as conventional roof-edge protection systems. The system also allows for considerable versatility in assembly. Individual sections are connected together using standard tubing and Kee® Safetys extensive range of components for a strong, rigid and virtually maintenance-free connection. Using these components the system can cope easily with any changes in angle or direction without the need for any additional fabrication work. Each Kee® Klamp component incorporates an integral set screw to lock the casting safely and securely onto the tube.
