KITE Clamp

Clamp Components

KITE Projects stock and supply modular clamp handrail systems for infrastructure sites everywhere; we specialise in supplying pre-cut tube and mid-rails for highways, railway, marine and coastal sites, airports, power generation sites and many more. Typically we check for specific compliances and consider for this in the tube grade and handrail configuration to give you the reassurance you need for your infrastructure clients.
