Handrail + Balustrading

Kee Klamps has a long history of supplying malleable iron fittings for building on site frameworks, but building handrails and balustrading was particularly difficult because of the complex and variable geometry at each landing.

Following research into architects needs, we devised a new method of making handrail joints so that the fitter can cut and join the handrail on site adding other parts such as posts, infill rails and infill panels from a selection of standard parts, whilst still maintaining a flush, engineered and integrated appearance similar to more expensive systems which require extensive, detailed drawings and off site manufacture which can’t easily be modified if there are errors that are only discovered during installation. The design is now fully patented.

We built prototype components and assembly machines to test and demonstrate concept feasibility and supplied all the production drawings. Tooling and components manufactured in UK.
