Fitting Description

Type 10 Single Socket Tee - Designed to give a 90 degree butt joint between two lengths of pipe. Frequently used for the joint between end uprights and the middle rail on guardrailing where the site is straight and level. Also for base ties on racking. This fitting cannot be used where the pipe through the sleeve is required to be joined within the Kee Klamp® fitting.
14-7
14-8
Type 14 Straight Coupling - Designed to give an inline joint between pipe of the same size. Pipe can be joined within this fitting.
15-7
15-8
Type 15 Ninety Degree Elbow - A 90 degree elbow joint, most frequently used as an end joint for the top rail of guardrailing on a level site.

Type 21 Ninety Degree Side Outlet Tee - Most frequently paired with Type 20 to give a 90 degree corner joint for the middle rail of guardrailing and other rectangular structures. The upright passes through the fitting.
25-7
25-8
Type 25 Three Socket Tee - Most commonly used as the 90 degree joint between the top rail and an intermediate upright on guardrailing. As there are two socket set screws in the sleeve, this Kee Klamp® fitting can be used where a join is required in the horizontal tube. As an alternative, it is possible to use a Type 10 fitting in its vertical position in place of the Type 25, using the latter only where a join in the pipe occurs.
26-7
26-8
Type 26 Two Socket Cross - Usually paired with Type 25 to give a 90 degree joint between the middle rail and an intermediate upright on guardrailing. The upright passes through the fitting.

Type 61 Flange - This flange, with holes provided for countersunk head screw fixings only, is for use on structures where the fixing required is positional only. Frequently used as a wall fixing bracket. It is not recommended for use as a base flange to support guardrailing, balustrading, or other types of structures.
62-7
62-8
Type 62 Standard Railing Flange - Ideal when a structural fixing is required. Type 62 should always be used to fix down guardrailing and balustrades. The holes are of sufficient diameter to give a good fixing with either a mechanical or chemical anchor, and the two socket set screws in the vertical socket give greater stability to the upright. It is recommended that the fixing holes in the flanges should be inline with the applied load.
64-7
64-8
Type 64 Standard Vertical Railing Base - This fitting is designed for palm fixing guardrailing and balustrading to walls, parapets, steps, and ramps. The upright cannot drop through the socket. Access to the top fixing hole is restricted by the position of the flange to the barrel. When selecting a hexagon head bolt or similar bolt fixing, the maximum length of the bolt including the head must not exceed 1".

Type 66 Ground Socket - A ground socket fitting for use when uprights are required to be removable. It incorporates a socket set screw fixing and can be supplied with a plug to fill the hole when the pipe is removed.

Type 68 Wall Flange - This fitting is designed for palm fixing guardrailing and balustrading to walls, parapets, stairs, and ramps. The upright cannot pass through the socket.
Note: Should an upright be required to pass through the fittings, the base can be bored out to order. If the upright is required to pass through the fitting by machining out the base stop, the bottom fixing hole will become unusable.
69-7
69-8
Type 69 Railing Flange With Toeboard Adaptor - This fitting has been designed for guardrailing and balustrading applications and provides the added benefit of attaching a kick plate to the base. The base plate holes are of sufficient diameter to allow for attachment with either a mechanical or chemical anchor, the side plate have slotted holes to allow for a degree of sideways movement for ease of installation.
70-7
70-8
Type 70 Rail Support - This fitting, with holes provided for countersunk head screw fixing only, is designed to carry handrails along walls or to fix structures backs to walls.
