Fully complying with all relevant safety standards, the KeeGuard system features both fewer and lighter components than previous systems for quicker, easier and more cost-effective installation.

The KeeGuard system now comprises three principal pre-fabricated components - a main upright, a main counterbalance and a free end assembly, designed for use on runs of 6 m and above where no wall fixing is available. All assemblies are designed for use with 42.4 and 48.3 o/d diameter tubing and standard fittings from the Kee Klamp range to provide a complete, easy-to-assembly solution in roof edge guardrailing, walkway demarcation, stairwell, open lift shaft and other fall prevention applications. The system also allows for integral kickboard fixing.

The lightweight counterbalance assemblies are ergonomically designed for a more attractive system appearance. The innovative KeeGuard system now also features adjustable uprights which allow up to 11" raking movement. This raking capability ensures a more discreet system appearance from ground level, which can be an important requirement, especially on landmark or prestigious building applications.

The KeeGuard system is designed for new or existing roof structures, and versatile enough to adapt to most roof edge profiles and changes in levels. Sections can be easily taken down and re-erected as necessary, should existing buildings or roof areas be extended or altered in any way. Because the system is free-standing, there is no roof membrane penetration during installation, minimising the risk of leakage or damage to the roof covering. All areas in contact with the roof also feature a protective anti-slip rubber pad, as standard.

The KeeGuard system is durable and uses a galvanised finish for long-lasting, reliable performance. In addition, Kee Klamp fittings are supplied with case-hardened steel grub screws incorporating KeeKoat II protection which provides outstanding corrosion resistance and a strong, rigid, maintenance-free connection for the lifetime of an installation.
