Kee Safety - Model Kee Lite - Flexible Aluminum Components
Kee Lite components offer flexibility and can be used for a variety of applications from contemporary to industrial; your imagination is the only limitation. The Kee Lite solution offers a lightweight and versatile safety solution. Because Kee Lite can be easily installed with a hex tool and pipe cutters, there is no need for welding, saving you both time and money. Kee Lite is securely locked into place using recessed set screws that provide a sleek and smooth look to your railing system or pipe structure.

Kee Lite® fittings are made from high grade Aluminium Silicon Magnesium Alloy (A356-T6) which provide for a lightweight, corrosion resistant, and strong alternative for fabrication of pipe structures.
Due to the superior corrosion resistance, Kee Lite® fittings offer extremely low maintenance in outdoor settings. Kee Lite® fittings are only one-third the weight of our cast iron fittings, with about 75% of comparable tensile strength.
Kee Safety components are approved by TÜV, Europe’s leading independent testing house. The maximum load of each fitting type is as stated on the TÜV Certificate. You may download the certificate on the Certifications page.
The latest addition to our Kee Lite portfolio is the creation of a smooth aluminum railing system which is sold pre-assembled so there is limited time and cost required on-site when installing a handrail or guardrail system.
Kee Lite smooth railing is designed to satisfy the guardrail requirements of the US Water Industry and complies with OSHA 1910.23.
Kee Lite smooth railing is constructed from 1 1/2' Schedule 40 aluminium pipe grade 6105-T5, ASTM-B-429 or ASTM-B-221 with Uprights spaced at maximum centers of 6'-0', pipes are joined together with aluminum alloy components and contain no pop-riveted or glued joints. All components are mechanically fastened to the pipe with stainless steel setscrews.
Guardrails and Handrails are designed to withstand a 200lb concentrated load applied in any direction and at any point on the top rail.
Intermediate railings are constructed such that a 21-inch diameter sphere cannot pass through any opening.
Posts shall not interrupt the continuation of the top rail at any point along the railing, including corners and end terminations (OSHA 1910.23). The top surface of the top railing shall be smooth and shall not be interrupted by projected fittings.
The mid-rail at a corner return shall be able to withstand a 200lb load without loosening.
The following are standard Kee Lite smooth Uprights which are designed for a variety of different layouts, other base types are available.
