Kee Access Ramp for the NHS

Kee Systems Installed a Kee Access Ramp to suit client specifications at East & North Hertfordshire NHS Trust.

The Project: Installing Kee Access Ramp

Kee Systems, a renowned provider of modular access solutions, recently completed a project for the East & North Hertfordshire NHS Trust by installing a Kee Access Ramp at the Bedford Road Clinic

The client’s interest in utilizing a modular ramp was sparked after witnessing a previous successful Kee Access Ramp installation.

Impressed by the modularity and functionality of the ramp, they reached out to Kee Systems to explore the possibility of implementing a similar solution at their own facility.

The Solution: Kee Access Ramp

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

This included measuring the height, width, length, and available space, as well as evaluating any irregular angles or falls in the concrete floor. Of particular importance was a brick wall that needed to be factored into the Kee Access ramp design.

Kee Systems devised a partially wall-fixed section that enabled the GRP landing platform to be securely positioned against the wall without leaving any gaps, ensuring a seamless integration with the existing structure.

Armed with the data gathered from the survey, Kee Systems’ technical team meticulously crafted a 3D design of the ramp, which was subsequently submitted for approval by the NHS Trust.

The design underwent three revisions to ensure that all details were meticulously refined before being presented to the client. The client also specified the use of specific tube lengths and a designated color (RAL 5015) to align with the NHS’s colour scheme, both of which were accommodated by Kee Systems.
