The Federation is delighted to welcome Kee Connections Ltd, specialist designers and manufacturers of quick connect safety couplings, hoses and connectors amongst our latest members. The company stocks finished goods ready for next-day dispatch, which is crucial in order to meet the demands of clients who require a fast turnaround.
Kee Connections have become members to engage with the wider health and safety community on their latest project for the breathing air industry and utilise the specialist support services available from BSIF. This project consists of developing a new breathing air hose complete with safety lock couplers and plugs, which has received pass certificates to standards EN 14594:2005, EN 14592-1: 2005 & EN14593-2: 2005 from BSI.
The hose is a high visibility, anti-static, heat resistant, lightweight and innovative product with reduced material that conforms to the required standards. Commenting on the creation of this hose, Kee Connections’ managing director, Tony Keeley said “The expansion of our Design Department is fundamental to improving the relationship between customers’ desires and the realisation of those ideas into prototypes for field trials/pre-products”. Pending approval, CE Certification will be offered for customers to add to their own technical documents.
With its new facility and over 30 years’ experience of coupling design, Keeley adds that the company now embedded in the BSIF is well-positioned for growth. He concluded: “We are ready for tomorrow’s requirements today by offering innovative, problem-solving solutions. The global landscape is changing quickly; we are not interested in keeping up, only in leading the way”.
