KEE SAFETY - Roof Safety Is Kee At Spanish Airport

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 21stcentury 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.

The roof is a key element in the building’s stunning visual aesthetic. While it tops off the building perfectly, the sloping surface presented a potential safety issue for those who have to access the roof for routine maintenance. Due to this concern, Kee Safety were contracted to supply approximately 7,500 linear metres of its Kee Walk® product to offer a permanent and safe roof top walkway solution.

“We were delighted to be contracted for this internationally prestigious project” explains Jeff Rowley, Product Manager at Kee Safety. “The roof is undulating, so needed a solution which was flexible enough to cope with an array of different slope angles whilst complying with the latest EN standards. On the contractors 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 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 which complies fully with the harmonised European Standard EN 516:2006 (Prefabricated Accessories for Roofing – Installations for roof access – Walkways, treads and steps) which became mandatory in January 2006. 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.

For full details on Kee Walk® and the company’s range of compatible Personal Protection Equipment, including harnesses, lanyards, helmets, knee pads and boots, please email below. Full technical support and advice on walkway requirements is available direct from the company.
