To meet the requirements of the numerous applications for which Kee Klamp® Key Clamps can be used, we offer many different kinds of fittings, which make the modular system flexible and adaptable. But how do we specify those fittings?

We have made the process of identifying and selecting which fittings you will need for your project simple and straightforward. Essentially, the first number in the product code identifies the type of fittings and a single digit, following the dash, defines the tube size.

Two digits after the dash indicates that the fitting is designed to receive two sizes of tube.

For example, a 10-8 indicates a Type 10 fitting, which is designed to accept a size eight tube. Conversely, a 45-76 indicates a Type 45 fitting, where one socket of the fitting accepts a size seven tube and another accepts a size six.

We hope our specification system is as easy to follow as our systems are to install, but if you have any questions, or simply want to find out more about Kee Klamp® Key Clamps, or its DDA access alternative Kee Access®, please get in touch.
