Welded rail that is embedded into concrete typically has a rust problem for a number of reasons:

Kee Klamp railings mitigate corrosion in a number of different ways:

  • Welding remove the galvanization from the railing making it more prone to rust.
  • Kee Klamp railings keep the galvanization intact and can even be powdercoated to a specific color
  • Embedding a piece of steel pipe into concrete causes rusting because concrete is porous and contains moisture.  This moisture contacts the pipe and traditionally causes rusting around the base of embedded uprights.
  • Kee Klamp railings use base flanges that sit on top of the concrete surface.  This method keeps the pipe out of the concrete and reduces the opportunity for corrosion.
  • The welding processes can take several days, leaving the pipe open to the elements, possibly leading the pipes filling up with water.
  • Kee Klamp railings install quickly and easily and usually are finished the same day that they are started.

After 4 years, not a Spot of Rust

The railing pictured above was installed 4 years ago and as you can see there is no rust that has appeared, nor even the signs of rust beginning to show.
