Jail, Prison and Detention doors

Hardware installation and maintenance:

To understand the advantages of hollow metal construction, consider first the hardware installation for the swinging door of a typical bar-grille cell front. The security hinges and lock encasement are actually accessible to the inmate since he is able to reach through the bars. Therefore, in many cases, the lock encasement must be continuously welded assemblies with cover plates welded in place to prevent inmate tampering. This situation makes repairs and maintenance both difficult and expensive.

Hardware installations and Maintenance:

To understand the advantages of hollow metal construction, consider first the hardware installation for the swinging door of a typical bar-grille cell front. The security hinges and lock encasement are actually accessible to the inmate since he is able to reach through the bars. Therefore, in many cases, the lock encasement must be continuously welded assemblies with cover plates welded in place to prevent inmate tampering. This situation makes repairs and maintenance both difficult and expensive.

To repair a lock, it is necessary to cut the cover plate loose with a torch, repair or replace the lock, then weld a new cover plate back in place. In the hollow metal assembly, the lock is mounted in a reinforced pocket, inside the door or frame and is protected by a heavy gauge cover plate fastened with security screws.

The flush type detention hollow metal door, severely limits the inmate’s access and visibility in any attempts to tamper with the cover plate and lock. Since inmate tampering is limited by the flush hollow metal design, cover plates and access panels can be mounted with tamper proof screws. in most cases rather than welding, thereby reducing the cost of installation, repair and maintenance.

Security Mesh and Bar Grating

High security mesh partitions, doors, and ceilings allow for a clear site line for observation of inmates while maintaining security. We can install high security mesh as doors, partitions at holding cells or at recreation areas, and for ceilings over outdoor recreation areas. We can also install jail bars and bar grating.

A series of bearing bars are welded, swage-locked, or press-locked together with perpendicular crossbars to form the panels. Bar grating is a rugged, high-performance, low-maintenance, and slip-resistant, Anti-corrosion, beautiful and durable, security product. 

Press locked grating features a system of perpendicular interlocking bars that provide a smooth, clean look. This makes it perfect for architectural applications where aesthetic sensibilities are of utmost importance. Press-locked grating can be produced from carbon steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Its surface can be treated by galvanizing, painting or powder coating. 

Welded steel bar grating is the most popular type, due to its combination of strength, ease of installation and cost effectiveness. Riveted bar grating is primarily used for engineering applications involving wheeled equipment that transports rolling loads due to its resistance to buckling. Available in both aluminum and steel, this type of grating features reticulated bars that are riveted to the bearing bars.
