Prison Furniture

August 30th, 2011 by

Stainless steel prison furniture is designed to be fitted to any minimum, medium, or maximum security prison build out.  Fixtures are made with Antiligature characterstics that have evolved to address specific prison security issues. 

Historically, prison safety has been weakest in the areas of vandalism, inmate suicide, and weapons manufacture.   

  • Inmates have historically hung themselves with any piece of rope they can find, or with bed sheets. 
  • Some inmates have cut their wrists on sharp edges of metal objects
  • Other inmates broke off these sharp objects and made weapons.
  • Still other inmates vandalized cells by ripping sinks and toilets from walls.
  • Stopping up sinks and toilets and flooding cells was another form of vandalism that often was a distraction to guards.  Riots often began in this fashion.

XPB Locker sells all kinds of prison furniture that is engineered to either reduce or outright prevent the number of such incidents from occurring in modern prison facilities.   

Prison furniture options include, but are not limited to, security showers, security bookshelf units, security general storage shelves, security soap dishes, combo toilet sink units, security towel hooks, lavatories, and urinals

All security plumbing fixtures are made from stainless steel.  Different configurations for different levels of prison security are available, making our selection ideal for any architect working in the correctional facility industry.

Our high security prison furniture feature Antiligature attributes that directly relate to those safety concerns that have historically plagued prisons for hundreds of years. 

  • All welded designs and smooth seams prevent products from being broken apart.
  • Round edges on everything keeps prisoners from cutting themselves.
  • Breakaway shower heads and hooks give way under the weight of inmates who attempt to hang themselves.
  • Minimum number of small components makes it hard to break metal pieces off the fixtures.
  • Security plumbing fixtures can handle thousands of pounds of impact force. 
  • Water control and flood control technology in lavatories and toilets prevents cell flooding.

Correctional centers that have installed our prison furniture have noticed the following improvements. 

  1. Inmates can be calmed down more quickly if they realize that they are not going to be able to pull the sink or toilet from the wall, and when they have no way to carry through on their anger.
  2. Inmates attempting suicide get caught by guards because the guards see the broken towel hooks.   
  3. Even the most resourceful inmate will find it so hard to make weapons using these fixtures that any attempt to do so will very likely be detected and stopped.

Jail Furniture

August 27th, 2011 by
Share


Some of the most important jail furniture correctional facilities can invest in are stainless steel security accessories and plumbing fixtures.  They feature antiligature characteristics essential to reducing inmate violence and vandalism.

It is important that jail furniture be designed with this in mind.  If inmates are successful in acting out their anger, their anger intensifies and dangerous situations escalate very quickly.  

The three things that correctional facilities have to constantly watch for are vandalism, suicide attempts, and weapons manufacture.  Some inmates will try to kill themselves by hanging or cutting themselves.  Others will try to kill others by making weapons out of metal pieces of furniture.  Vandalism is often only a distraction to get guards to lower their guard and start a riot.

To reduce the number of these incidents, jail furniture was eventually engineered with high security features that specifically address these issues.  Products include security book shelving, standard shelving, towel hooks, holders for toothbrushes, soap dishes, urinals, and toilet lavatory combo units.

All of these many products are engineered with the reduction of self-inflicted harm, vandalism, and inmate violence.  They are also engineered in ways that let architects adapt them to any type of jail.  Their stainless steel construction makes them durable and highly sanitary as well.

These specialized Jail furniture products all feature basic Antiligature characteristics that address the major security issues discussed in this article.

 

  • Welded seams are ground smooth so inmates cannot break off pieces of metal.
  • The edges of toilets, sinks, urinals, and shower heads are smooth to prevent self cutting.
  • Hooks break under the weight of inmates who try to hang themselves.
  • Most security plumbing fixtures are made with fewer parts, so there are fewer opportunities to break something of and turn it into a weapon.
  • Urinals, lavatories, and toilets can take thousands of pounds of inmate force.    
  • Plumbing fixtures are made with water control and flood prevention in mind to stop inmates from flooding their cells.

Detention centers who use these jail furniture products have seen the following improvements. 

 

  1. Inmates will calm down quicker when the furniture they try to break is stronger than them.
  2. Inmates who try to kill themselves break off hooks and are eventually discovered by guards.
  3. It is so hard to make weapons out of these fixtures that when inmates try to do so they are almost always caught in the act.

Bleacher Handrails and Guardrails

August 23rd, 2011 by
Share


1)  Why should guardrail and handrail openings be 4 inches or less?

Because 95% of all children over the age of 4 months have a head diameter greater than 4 inches and therefore can not enter or fall through the opening.

2)  Why should guardrails be designed with vertical slats?

Because it is much more difficult for a child to climb vertical slats.  Horizontal slats resemble a ladder and should be avoided. 

3) Is it difficult to retrofit an existing bleacher or grandstand with Bleacher Guardrails and Bleacher Handrails?

No it is not difficult when working with people who have knowledge and experience in the field.

Commercial Picnic Table Case Study-Wood Leaf Subdivision

August 21st, 2011 by
Share

Over a ten year period, the Wood Leaf subdivision in San Antonio, TX had paid out $3,000.00 in repair costs for 4 wooden picnic tables that were suffering from sporadic vandalism and the effects of inclement weather.  Young people occasionally picked up the tables, which were very light, and threw them in the nearby swimming pool.  Wind and rain also wore down the wooden tops and seats, causing dangerous splinters to form and splitting the boards in places.

 After one table eventually became so damaged that it could not be repaired, Associate.

Management, the organization that ran the community center for Wood Leaf, decided to replace the four tables with metal commercial picnic tables with benches.  They also decided to replace two undamaged wooden tables that were situated under gazebos. 

Associated Management researched metal commercial picnic tables with benches and chose the

6 foot rectangular metal expanded model.  This table features a weather and vandalism resistant thermoplastic covering.  Thermoplastic coating is UV resistant, so it will not fade in sunlight.  It can also be easily resealed with a heat gun in the event that vandals scratch or cut through the coating.

The new tables are very heavy, so vandals can no longer pick them up and toss them in the pool. 

XPB Locker was chosen as a vendor for three reasons.

  1. 1.      XPB Locker has competitive pricing for commercial picnic tables with benches.
  2. 2.     We have competitive shipping rates compared to other online sources
  3. 3.     For projects local to Central Texas and the Texas Hill Country, we are often able to provide turnkey installation on a selected bases.

The new, metal commercial picnic tables with benches were expeditiously shipped to the community center.  Installers showed up the next day and moved the units through the gate, which was very narrow and require a certain amount of expert navigation to clear.   

Questions were raised about the method of mounting the new tables.  Since two of the units were to be placed on concrete patios under gazebo coverings, it was decided to bolt these units directly to the concrete. 

The other four tables, being exposed to open air, could either be mounted in-ground with concrete leg extensions, or they could simply be placed on the ground with portable mounting supports.  Since the tables were for all intents and purposes too heavy to steal or throw into the pool, the Associated Management opted for portable mounts and the added security of chaining the bench legs to nearby shade trees. 

The response from Wood Leaf was overwhelmingly positive.  The new commercial picnic tables with benches are both more comfortable and attractive.  Residents have remarked that the entire area looks better now with the new forest green tables that provide a superb compliment to the lawn, pool, and neighboring tennis courts.

Prison Toilets

August 18th, 2011 by
Share

All of our prison toilets share certain basic Antiligature characteristics such as rounded edges, all welded designs, and no protrusions that can be used for suicide attempts or weapons manufacture.  Fixtures are made from stainless steel to maximize both vandal resistance and sanitation.  These prison plumbing security fixtures can take between 2,000 and 5,000 pounds of force, depending on the model.

Different prison toilets mount differently and flush differently.  This is to accommodate different security levels in different types of detention facilities.  When vandalism and violence are likely, toilets should have blowout jet flushing capability.  This allows large items such as books or mattress pieces to be flushed through the plumbing without stopping up the unit and flooding the cell block.

In correctional facilities where this level of mischief is unlikely, siphon jet flushing can be used effectively.  Siphon jets use a water jet at the front of the bowl to flush waste through a flange.  Flanges on even the siphon jet models, however, are larger than those on residential toilets because there is still always the possibility of debris getting into the fixture even if it is not the result of deliberate vandalism.

However, all prison toilets should feature water flow control and water overflow control mechanisms whenever possible.  This prevents water waste and accidental damage to equipment that could occur through unintentional misuse or neglect of the equipment.

Specialized prison toilets include in-floor mounted fixtures that are commonly used in detoxification cells, padded cells, and some solitary confinement units.  These fixtures install directly into the floor and feature a non-standard commode design that provides utilitarian functionality only.

A much more advanced prison toilet option that is also highly adaptable to a variety of plumbing configurations is the combination prison toilet lavatory water closet stainless steel design.  This design features an all welded steel construction available in three modified configurations.  The essential design, however, is simply a sink on top of a cabinet that contains a toilet near the floor. 

This configuration saves on space and is ultra secure because all hookups are behind the cell wall.  It is also much more difficult to break this unit because it is stronger than an individual lavatory or toilet.  Both the lavatory and the toilet feature water flow control and overflow prevention, so deliberate flooding of cells is kept at minimal risk. 

Combo units are much easier to install than individual sinks and prison toilets.  Units are ANSI specification compliant and can be chase mounted or floor mounted.  Chase mounting is recommended for maximum security conditions.

Individual stainless steel toilets can also take up to 5,000 pounds of impact force.  They, too, are standard prison equipment in cells shared by multiple inmates.  Toilets can mount in either triangular pipe chases or angled walls.  There are a number of configurations that exist that will accommodate cells of different sizes and prisons of varying security levels. 

When budget permits the purchase of combination units, the most utilitarian fixtures in our prison equipment inventory are the toilet lavatory water closet units.   They can be installed in everything from local jails to maximum security centers, including solitary confinement cells

Combination units secure from behind cell walls and can withstand up to 5,000 pounds of impact force on the edge of the toilet bowl.  With no rough edges or hooks, maximum security is ensured against suicide attempts or weapons manufacture.  Toilets and lavatories are self draining to prevent vandalism through overflow.  Units are all welded, contiguous stainless steel with no crevices, so cleaning is fast and easy to ensure sanitation and minimizing of odor building.

Lavatory Toilet Combination Prison Plumbing Fixtures

August 12th, 2011 by
Share

Combo toilet lavatory units are among the safest and most practical prison plumbing equipment you can buy for your correctional facility.  They regulate water flow extensively with 1.6GPF or 3.4GPF and flood disabling capability.  There are wall mounted, floor mounted, chase mounted, or front mounted designs available. 

Combo prison toilet and lavatory water closet cabinets are made specifically to prevent vandalism, suicide, and weapons manufacturing.  The absence of rigid hooks prohibits tie off points, and the absence of sharp edges prevent self cutting.  These water closets also have no bars that could be removed to make clubs or knives. 

Due to the prevalence of vandalism in detention centers, toilet and sink combo prison plumbing fixtures have to be resistant to being pulled from the wall or broken by angry prisoners.  This is one of the main reasons they are made from an all welded stainless steel design that offers no cracks, exposed fasteners, and no solder that can be pried apart or removed. 

Toilet and lavatory combo plumbing fixtures secure behind cell walls for further stability and security.  The valves and controls are easily accessed by maintenance personnel.  It is virtually impossible to damage these units, as they front edge of the toilet can withstand 5,000 pounds of force. 

The angled bowl design of these prison plumbing fixtures allows them to be installed in many different types of detention center layouts.   They can be fitted to triangular pipe chases and installed in facilities with angled walls.  Installation is simple and efficient thanks to the all in one water closet style design. 

These combination prison plumbing fixtures are far easier to install that separate lavatories and sinks, and they are also much more convenient for inmates as well.  Lavatory systems have fast draining basins and self draining soap dishes.  Combination units have a GPF of 1.6 or 3.4 depending on the specific model you purchase.

Flood disabling capability is also built into the cabinet design.  This deters inmates from stopping up the toilets or basins and flooding their cells.  The toilet rims are self-drainage to prevent floor spills, and lavatory design is overflow resistant.    

The combination water closet cabinet, lavatory toilet prison plumbing fixture is also designed to minimize bacterial buildup.  The seamless construction offers no crevices for germs to congregate and multiple, so units are quickly and effectively clean with basic effort.  Stainless steel is used to build both the exterior of the cabinet and the interior piping.  The mounting hardware is also rustproof and features brass valves and brass trim.

Why Should I Buy Horizontal Mailboxes Instead of Vertical Mailboxes?

August 10th, 2011 by
Share

Many organizations ask us this when they see how much mail can be loaded into a larger vertical mail box, and when they see how easy it is for mail carriers to quickly retrieve and deliver mail in a large, easily accessible vertical slot.  While these are major points of convenience for both mail carriers and users alike, horizontal mailboxes are much more practical when space is limited, or when there is a large community of people to service.

The reason for this is simple.  Vertical mailboxes are much larger, and they line up in a single row along a wall.  It takes a rather large wall to accommodate a large number of vertical units.  However, horizontal mailboxes, due to their compact size, and the fact that they can be arranged in multiple rows, consume far less horizontal wall space.

30 horizontal mailboxes can be installed along the wall between two large offices without having to sacrifice floor space that can be much better utilized for leasing, production, and profitability.

Vertical mailboxes are indeed highly attractive and provide better space accommodations for larger envelops and oversized mail.  Their best application is in places where cosmetics and convenience are necessary to attract business on the basis of amenities.  They are also very practical for very small apartments and office buildings that do not have that many mail recipients to service.

Realistically, however, horizontal mailboxes are preferred by most architects and building managers responsible for mail services to communities of any considerable size.   The existing of front loading horizontal units makes them even more space efficient for organizations that cannot afford to sacrifice floor space to a mail room behind the boxes. 

There are even surface mounted configurations that allow builders responsible for remodels to install a compact mail center that does not even require cutting into the wall.

The key to this flexibility of applications lies in the innate simplicity of horizontal mail box design.  As an individual unit, the individual box is nothing more than that—a box that is slightly wider than it is tall. 

However, this very basic design allows for the creation of highly compact, customized mail centers simply by arranging the necessary number of horizontal mail boxes in an appropriate number of rows and columns that make the most of a small amount of wall space.  Parcel lockers and outgoing mail boxes can be installed within these clusters that will accommodate every possible need of mail recipients in the building.

Should I buy Vertical or Horizontal USPS Mailboxes?

August 8th, 2011 by
Share

The choice should be based on space requirements of two different sorts.  One is the overall available floor space of your building.  The other is your available wall space. 

The first thing to look at is your floor plan.  Rear loading USPS mailboxes require corridor access from behind.  If your building can be constructed with such a corridor, or if you are remodeling a building that already has such a corridor, then rear loading mailboxes will allow you to service a large number of users with a smaller amount of wall space. 

Rear loading, horizontal USPS mailboxes stack one on top of the other.  Each box unit is smaller than their vertical counterparts, so less room is needed to accommodate a large number of users.  If you have an apartment building, office building, or postal mail retail center, then horizontally mounted units that load from the rear are the best possible option.

If you have limited wall space, many users, but no room for a mail corridor, you can also buy front loading horizontal USPS mailboxes.  This is particularly beneficial to buildings that remodeling to accommodate new tenants.  Surface mounted horizontal units that load from the front offer the most cost effective, space management solution to meet the needs of users.

Then again, you may have a very small apartment building, office building, or rural postal center than only caters to a small number of users.  In this event, you can offer your users more personal mail storage space with vertical mailboxes.  These units are large enough that most oversized mail can be neatly stacked without being folded.  Magazines can be placed in these boxes without permanently creasing the pages. 

Vertical USPS mail boxes load from the front.  They are very easy for mail carriers to access.  Sometimes couriers get into a hurry due to heavy demands on their time.  Most prefer the vertical boxes because they are easier to load mail into without having to stuff oversized mail into a cramped space.  It is also easier to load mail into boxes that people do not check every day. 

The only disadvantage to vertically mounted USPS mail boxes is that they do take up a great deal of wall space.  Buildings that plan to expand in the future need to make certain that they have enough room on the mail wall to add new boxes in the event that more tenants move in.

All-Welded Security Fire Department Gear Lockers for Turnout Storage

August 5th, 2011 by
Share

If you are looking for a turnout gear locker that will give your firefighting team customizable storage space and maximum security for personal belongings, then the all-welded, security fire department lockers are your best option.  These lockers feature superb ventilation, adjustable shelving, and a reinforced, vandal resistant design.

The reason these fire department lockers are so secure that they are also used by SWAT teams and military units is because there are no screws, nuts, or bolts used in their assembly.  Not only do they feature all-welded, contiguous design, but they are reinforced in the front interior sides an in the locking mechanism itself.  This allows firefighters to safely store any personal items in their turnout gear lockers as well along with firefighting equipment.

As you know, the ability to retrieve equipment quickly when you hear the fire alarm is of top priority.  Keeping things organized is a must so that they can be found and put on as quickly as possible when an emergency strikes.  You have more ability to organize the all welded turnout gear locker than you do other locker designs.  Each fire department locker comes with one standard adjustable shelf that fire fighters can set to any preferred height.  This creates a top cubby storage area ideal for fire helmets, gloves, fireproof bandannas, and face masks.

Beneath this shelf, there are two heavy duty hooks that allow for jackets and turnout pants to be hung neatly in a place where they can be quickly retrieved and donned.  The long, vertical section of the fire department locker has plenty of room for an air bottle and a pair of boots to be stored under the jacket and pants.  There is so much room, in fact, that the locker can be even further customized to accommodate personal storage needs.

Additional adjustable shelves can be ordered with each turnout gear locker.  Typically, an extra shelf is positioned near the bottom of the turnout gear locker so the firefighter can store boots and the air bottle a little bit higher than floor level.  This not only makes it easier to retrieve these items when the alarm goes off, but it also creates a personal cubby storage area at the bottom.

Because each shelf can be set to any height, every fire department locker can be adjusted to the individual needs of the individual firefighter.  This bottom section provides the safest area to store wallets, personal keys, watches, other jewelry, and other valuables.
