Kee Klamp Safety Barriers & Bespoke Kee Gate in Bristol

A prominent manufacturing facility in Bristol recently embarked on a critical safety project to protect its personnel and enhance access control within its premises.

Phase 1: Identifying Safety Needs

The facility collaborated with Kee Systems, a renowned safety solutions provider, to install Kee Klamp Safety Barriers in the Furness department. Additionally, Kee Systems undertook the challenge of redesigning a bespoke sliding gate in the wax department. This was to ensure secure separation of personnel from the Wax X-ray room and provide a safe gate operation. This case study delves into the successful implementation of the Kee Klamp Safety Barriers and Bespoke Kee Gate, highlighting the benefits they brought to the manufacturing facility.

The manufacturing facility’s furness department posed potential safety risks to personnel, necessitating a reliable barrier system to protect them from accidents and falls. Kee Systems’ safety experts collaborated closely with the facility’s safety team to assess specific safety requirements and challenges in the furness department.
