Fall protection specialist Kee Safety has recently supplied its Kee Walk® roof safety equipment to the biggest airport terminal in Spain, offering full protection for those accessing and working on the uniquely designed sloping roof.
The expansion at Madrid Barajas Airport will establish this major European transport hub as a 21st-century facility. Able to handle up to 35 million passengers annually, the new, state-of-the-art terminal, designed by Richard Rogers Partnership and Estudio Lamela, will deliver an improved passenger experience, creating an attractive and peaceful environment for travellers and employees.
On the contractor’s side, they needed confidence that the six-month timescale from order placement to completion was achievable. Kee Walk was ideal; a modular system, no bespoke parts, and each section delivered to the site fully assembled to provide a level, anti-slip walking surface that is lightweight and does not penetrate or damage the roof. Kee Walk is the only system of its type that complies fully with the harmonised European Standard EN 516:2006 (Prefabricated Accessories for Roofing – Installations for roof access – Walkways, treads and steps). It exceeds the deflection criteria and slip resistance requirements of this standard and achieves almost double the friction requirement of BS 4592 in both wet and dry conditions.
