A Lightweight Alternative to Steel Structures with an Aesthetic Look and Design
Since 1934, Kee Safety has been dedicated to providing the world with a versatile, economical, and durable method of building tubular structures. Kee Lite & Kee Klamp fittings are available in more countries, more styles, more sizes, and more colors than any other brand of structural fitting.
Kee Lite components are a versatile product that are used in the construction of railings, safety barriers, racks, greenhouses, structural framework, and thousands of other uses. Large, recessed stainless steel grub screws resist corrosion and thread stripping, with maximum surface contact with tube, while providing a smooth appearance.
Lightweight and Corrosion Resistant
Kee Lite components are made from high grade Aluminium Silicon Magnesium Alloy (A356-T6) which provide for a lightweight, corrosion resistant, and strong alternative for fabrication of tubular structures. Due to the superior corrosion resistance, Kee Lite components offer extremely low maintenance in outdoor settings. Kee Lite components are only one-third the weight of our iron components, with about 75% of comparable tensile strength.
Kee Safety has the ability to supply off-the-shelf anodised KEE LITE fittings and tube. Anodising provides the extra corrosion protection needed for the harsh environments like the Middle East.
Kee Lite components are installed using only a standard hex key – no threading or welding required. No headaches about hot-permits, specialised labour or equipment. A standard hex key and tube cutters are the only tools required to create strong, rigid structures. Recessed grub screws, tightened by the hex key, firmly lock the tube into the fitting. No pre-fabrication of tube structures in shop – everything can be assembled and built on site. They are also reusable should you wish to dismantle or redesign your structure.
Fabricating and building with Kee Lite components saves time, money, and resources. View our featured Installations to learn more about how Kee Safety can help bring your projects in on time, and under budget! Contact us today with your application for a free quote.
Abu Dhabi Sewerage Services Company searched for non-conductive guardrail
Guardrail in desertlike environments must fulfil much more specifications than in the moderate regions of Europe. Anodised aluminium as a robust and corrosion resistant material is the choice for any guardrail on industrial plants in the Middle East.
Beside the environmental effects Abu Dhabi Sewerage Services Company had another very important specification which needed to be complied with: non-conductive material. GRP (Glass-Reinforced Plastic) material has been part of the conversation, but costs were much higher than the aluminium solution. So aluminium guardrail built out of KEE LITE fittings and aluminium tube has been the solution of choice.
Kee Safety fittings can be installed with GRP tube to get a solution for a specific non-conductive guardrail. Please do not hesitate to ask for your specified quote!

Anodising is a reacted finish that is integrated with the underlying aluminium for total bonding and unmatched adhesion.
Benefits of Anodising
Durability - anodised products have an extremely long life span and offer significant economic advantages through maintenance and operating savings.
Colour Stability - exterior anodic coatings provide good stability to ultraviolet rays, do not chip or peel, and are easily repeatable.
Easy Maintenance - scars and wear from handling, installation, frequent surface dirt cleaning and usage are virtually non-existent. Rinsing or mild soap and water cleaning usually will restore an anodised surface to its original appearance.
Health and Safety - anodising is a relatively safe process to apply. An anodised finish is chemically stable, will not decompose; is non-toxic; and is heat-resistant. The anodising process is a reinforcement of a naturally occurring oxide process, it is non-hazardous and produces no harmful or dangerous by-products.
