Kee Walk with Guardrail to allow continued maintenance.

The Project: Access Walkway for continued maintenance

Kee Walk with Guardrail was installed   for Leeds City Council invested £10 million for the refurbishment of Leeds Kirkgate market that included new roofing repairs, new glazing, new gutters, and new access walkway for continued maintenance.

Through an initial site visit, we advised the existing wooden walkway needed upgrading and should include a guardrail.

The Solution: Kee Walk with a Guardrail

The initial phase of the project involved conducting a comprehensive survey of the roof to identify and assess any potential obstacles and constraints that needed to be taken into consideration during installation process

Maintenance of the roof, gutters, and glazing was ongoing and required.

Smoke vents and gutter maintenance were located on the steep slope section of the composite roof panel.

Currently, there was no safe access to these areas, so a Kee Walk with Guardrail were required.

Before we installed our Kee Walk access walkway, this was being done via scaffolding and cherry pickers, which required road closures and a lot of planning.

Kee Walk system provided a compliant and safe access walkway that could be used by any operative, all year around, eliminating the need for scaffolding and cherry pickers which require skilled/train operatives and can only be used in certain weather conditions.
