Walkway Provides Safe Access on Undulating Airport Terminal Roof

During the second half of 2011, Kee Safety has supplied its Kee Walk® roof safety equipment to the biggest airport terminal in Spain, offering full protection for those accessing and working on the uniquely designed sloping roof.

The roof is undulating, so needed a solution which was flexible enough to cope with an array of different slope angles whilst complying with the latest EN standards.


The expansion at Madrid Barajas Airport will establish this major European transport hub as a 21st-century facility. Able to handle up to 35 million passengers annually, the new, state-of-the-art terminal, designed by Richard Rogers Partnership and Estudio Lamela, will deliver an improved passenger experience, creating an attractive and peaceful environment for travelers and employees.

Kee Walk® was ideal; a modular system, no custom-made parts, and each section delivered to the site fully assembled to provide a level, anti-slip walking surface that is lightweight and does not penetrate or damage the roof.

Delivering Value

Kee Walk® is the only system of its type that complies fully with the harmonized European Standard EN 516:2006 (Prefabricated Accessories for Roofing – Installations for roof access – Walkways, treads, and steps) which became mandatory in January 2006. It exceeds the deflection criteria and slip resistance requirements of this standard and achieves almost double the friction requirement of BS 4592 in both wet and dry conditions.

The finished project consisted of almost 7.5 km (4.1 miles) of Kee Walk® and was completed on time.


Walkways that go Above and Beyond

Kee Walk® provides a safe, anti-slip, level walkway for workers who need to access a roof in the course of their work. Its intelligent design protects the roof surface from unnecessary damage and integrates easily with either guardrails or lifeline systems.
