During refurbishment of Staines railway station in Surrey, a new pedestrian handrail system was installed, using Kee Access® components. Helping to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), the new system was fitted alongside a new access ramp at the entrance to ensure safe and easy access for all passengers using the station. Guardrails were finished in an orange colour, ensuring an attractive appearance whilst benefiting the sight-impaired user.
Installation of the safety guardrailing system was part of a renovation programme to improve access to the station, specified by railway engineering contractor, GRAMM Interlink Rail. “Safety was our foremost concern when selecting the access ramp at the front of the station, and Kee Safety was just right for the job” says Steve Lee, at GRAMM Interlink Rail. “The Kee Access® range meets the specification provided by the DDA. It’s also a solution that’s quick and easy to put together, making it a very cost-effective approach”.
The structures were installed by Kee Safety’s own design and installation team.
