Kee Systems and the NHS – Bespoke Access Platform

Kee Systems is a trusted contractor to the UK’s vast healthcare sector. Here’s how our experts assisted a hospital in Northampton in overcoming a hazardous access route.

The Project: Providing a safe and compliant walkway

There is no room for mistakes in the health sector. It’s vital that any work done to NHS premises is safe, smoothly executed and compliant with the regulations.

Kee Systems attended a site survey with the project manager, to discuss the options available to the Trust with a focus on providing a safe and compliant walkway from the new steel platform to the maintenance access building.

The Solution: Customised Access Platforms

The survey involved mapping out each of the individual obstructions including their height, width, length and space available outside of the walkway widths.

This provided Technical with everything required to complete a 3D design for approval by the Trust.

In addition to the raised walkway, we provided the option to increase the space covered to allow a safer transition from the steel platform to the Access Door.

Due to the height of the walkway reaching 400mm FFL, Guardrail was not required.

After submitting the proposal, the approval process was quick as we received the PO for the Bespoke Access Platform within 3 weeks.

The installation was completed shortly after, meeting the client’s deadlines and allowing maintenance staff access to the area to carryout vital tasks.

Benefits to the Customer

​​The Bespoke Kee Platform and Walkway provided a complete free-standing solution which enabled the roof warranty to be retained as no penetrations were made.

The walkway is fully compliant to EN ISO 14122:2016 providing the client with assurance that the system is designed to the right standard, providing peace of mind.

Utilises Kee Walk Treads and Kee Klamp components which provided the client with a lightweight solution for their rooftop as opposed to a completely fabricated steel structure which met their loading restrictions.
