Kee Systems Helps Tenbury Recycling Plant
Provide Safe Access
ee Klamp® fittings and mesh
infill panels from Kee Systems
have provided a recycling
centre in Worcestershire with safe
access for both visitors and
maintenance teams.
Opened in 2016, Tenbury Wells
Recycling Centre is a household
recycling plant that enables residents to
recycle and divert more materials from
landfill, including items such as soil and
rubble, cardboard, wood, metal and
electrical goods. Designed as a splitlevel site, the plant is easy to access for
those working on the site, with no need
to climb steps to access the recycling
With a requirement for safety barriers,
MF Freeman, the main contractor on this
project, opted for a Kee Klamp®
guardrail system. These fittings are hot
dip galvanised, making them more
resilient to corrosion, which was an
important consideration for this
environment. Supplied via Kee Systems,
120m of Kee Klamp® safety barriers
were installed around the recycling
centre. To ensure complete customer
safety while visitors drop their waste into
the individual bays, mesh infill panels
were added to the guardrailing system.
As no welding is required, the safety
barriers were constructed quickly and
easily on site.
“The whole project went very well,” says
Nick Thomas, Contracts Manager at MF
Freeman Group of Companies. “We
have ended up with a great result for the
client. We would not hesitate in working
with Kee Systems on future projects.”
The Kee Klamp® range offers
outstanding versatility and is suited to a
range of guardrail applications.
Manufactured from galvanised cast iron,
the Kee Klamp® system securely joins
structural steel tube into almost any
conceivable configuration across a
variety of angles. Designed with ease
and speed of installation in mind, the
components completely eliminate the
need for hot works on site, resulting in
significant cost and time savings. Neither
specialist labour nor tools are required
as Kee Klamp® fittings can be installed
using a standard hex key, with each
fitting incorporating an internal set screw
to lock the respective fitting safely and
securely onto the tube. Complying with
BS EN 1562 & BS EN 1563, the Kee
Klamp® fittings are TÜV certified for
strength, manufacturing quality and
Kee Systems’ mesh barriers are
constructed from heavy gauge tube and
have a welded mesh infill, making it very
strong and durable, whilst being light and
easy to handle. The three and half metre
span of the mesh barrier combines
economy and strength with fewer
components per metre, which makes it
the ideal choice for the construction
