KeeHatch® Safety Railing System

& New! KeeHatch® Lite Safety Railing System

Ensure safety and protect personnel in and around Rooftop Hatches

The KeeHatch® Safety Railing System is designed for safe egress and ingress through roof access hatches and for protection of the roof opening while the roof hatch is open. The railing system meets OSHA Standards 29 CFR 1910.23 and 29 CFR 1910.27.

OSHA 29 CFR 1910.23 requires that the exposed sides of openings in roofs or floors have some form of guardrail protection. When the hinged cover for an opening is left up, the exposed sides must be appropriately protected. KeeHatch® is comprised of Kee Klamp® fittings which are supplied in a corrosion resistant galvanized finish and now also available in Kee Lite® aluminium .

KeeHatch® can also be used in conjunction with the KeeGuard® Roof Edge Protection System in order to provide a durable and long lasting, OSHA Compliant roof fall protection system

Floor Hatch Safety Railing

Floor Hatch Safety Railing, Also Available

Part of the KeeHatch® family of products, the Floor Hatch Safety Railing is designed for safe egress and ingress through access hatches and for fall protection for the floor opening while the access door is up. The railing system uses the industry leading Kee Klamp fittings and is easy to assemble.

The Floor Hatch Safety Railing kits are made with either galvanized 11/4' pipe or aluminum 11/2" pipe for all hatch sizes. Installation is easy. For a standard installation, drill 2 holes for each base fitting (Type 62) and use lag bolts size 3/8' x 21/2' and lag shields to fix railing bases in place (lag kits sold separately). If the system is required to be removable, use ground socket fittings (Type 66) that are installed flush with concrete. All set screws should be tightened to 29 lbs/ft during installation.

A 2 sided kit can be ordered if the floor hatch backs to the wall. The Floor Hatch Safety Railing can also be custom designed accommodate a toeboard if needed.
