Kee Klamp®: beyond handrails
Kee Klamp® has been a mainstay in the barrier and guardrailing sector for almost eighty years, the go to solution for industries ranging from rail and road, to business owners looking to provide safe access to their premises for all.
The durable, modular nature of Kee Klamp® makes it a fantastic solution for providing barriers with very few drawbacks. However, the uses of Kee Klamp® go way beyond handrailing, and in this blog we’ll take a look at some of the more ingenious uses for fittings that we’ve seen.
Kee Klamp® for… Furniture
Another popular use for Kee Klamp® is in the construction of furniture, where it is ideal for creating a rugged, industrial look.
This bed was installed in London loft studio to match the industrial nature of the apartment. The tube used with the fittings has been colour coated black to match the bare brick and black window frames.
The owner has employed the same tactic in the kitchen, building a stylish and useful work surface using just ten fittings and the same colour coated surface.
Kee Klamp® for… Playtime
Kee Klamp® can be powder coated to any RAL colour, providing a durable finish that is chip, scratch and fade resistant, like in these climbing frames. These were installed in a park in Kensington to provide a safe and unique playground feature for local children.
Powder coating is also environmentally friendly as, unlike many liquid paints, there are no solvents or VOCs to damage the environment during application. The surface also provides a consistently cool temperature, even in cold weather.
Kee Klamp® has a long history of use in tubular structures, but occasionally you might not even notice it is there! You can hardly tell that modular fittings have been used in the construction of these cricket nets. In this installation, Kee Klamp® fittings have provided an effective and unobtrusive solution.
Kee Klamp® for… Retail
Whilst powder coating can make Kee Klamp® fittings stand out and turn them into a feature, they are just as adept at being used in subtle ways to help other things stand out. We supplied the fittings used in these clothing rails for cycling brand Huez to advertise their riding gear at Yorkshire Festival of Cycling.
Kee Klamp® has also been used by numerous restaurants and bars throughout the world to create storage and serving space that is both stylish and functional. Cabana in the 02 Arena built this fantastic bottle and wine rack that really suits the space around it.
Kee Klamp® for… Everything else
The hard-wearing and durable nature of Kee Klamp® fittings make them perfect for even the most demanding and unique of applications. Each Kee Klamp® fitting is hot-dip galvanised cast iron to European standard BS EN ISO 1461, which increases their longevity, reliability and overall toughness, making them ideal for structures like the above fireman’s pole, which forms the end of an indoor assault course. The structure is in constant use and has to carry varying weights without breaking and causing injury.
Kee Systems has been the proud supplier of Kee Klamp® for the London Marathon finishing line stands for over thirty years. The stands allow for clear branding and the Kee Klamp® is both unobtrusive and effective.
There really are no limits when it comes to building with Kee Klamp®, and Kee Systems is on hand to help make your plans a reality.
