The Type 555 is an in-line, adjustable angle, single top-rail mounted fitting for use where handrailing is needed and where there is no need for a twin-rail guardrail style system. Contains a variable angle of 60 degrees from the upright.
All the fittings in the Kee Access range are designed to construct handrails which are compliant with the recommendations made by the National Disability Authority, whose aim is to make handrails suitable for people with disabilities. The ideal construction of the handrail is outlined in Part M of the Building Regulations. It involves the handrail being smooth and continuous, with no terminations or breaks. The Kee Access range enables this to happen because the fittings are designed to align snugly with the outer edge of the tube, keeping the rail consistent.
