Part M Handrail
Kee Access disabled access handrail fittings are a comprehensive range of fittings which allow you to create any configuration of fully compliant NDA(National Disability Authority) handrail that will adhere to the specifications as outlined in Part M of the Building Regulations. Kee Access fittings are different to Kee Klamp in that they provide a smooth and continuous handrail with no terminations or breaks. This ensures that a hand can pass along its entirety in absolutely comfort, providing maximum peace of mind for the user.
Handrail And Post Sizes
Constructing a disabled access handrail can be tricky at first, without a basic understanding of how the fittings work. The first thing to understand is that the handrail itself is constructed using size 7(42.4mm) tube, keeping it consistent with the recommended handrail width. The tube uprights are all created with size 8(48.3mm) tube, providing a solid base and helping the handrail section to deal with the possible loading which might be applied.
The difference with Kee Access fittings and Kee Klamp fittings is that they allow the tube for the handrail to be kept flush with the outer edge of the fitting, ensuring that the handrail is smooth from beginning to end. Find out more about NDA handrails
