Securikey Institutional Mirrors Maximise Safety in Correctional Facilities

Securikey, a leading supplier of physical security products, offers a range of institutional mirrors that are designed specifically to withstand the harsh environments within prisons, psychiatric hospitals and other secure correction facilities.

With a choice of mirror styles, sizes and materials, all of which are virtually unbreakable and ligature-free, Securikey institutional mirrors are expertly designed to provide effective real time surveillance and eliminate blind spots, ensuring the safety of inmates, patients, staff and visitors who may otherwise be at risk from surprise attacks or collisions.

Having been designed in conjunction with prison architects, Securikey institutional mirrors maximise safety in correctional facilities and are tested and approved to meet stringent Home Office regulations and are specified for prison cells owned by the Metropolitan Police Department and Scotland Yard. They are also installed in a wide range of Correctional and Health Institutions worldwide, particularly in high-risk areas where a reliable solution is required.

The Institutional Stainless Steel range is made from quality, scratch resistant 1.2mm stainless steel, which is unbreakable, heat resistant and easy to maintain. There are Quarter face, Half face or Ceiling Dome options available to meet different siting needs, all of which are supplied with anti-ligature steel frames for optimum security and to reduce any risk of suicides. The innovative pressed counter-step holes in the Ceiling Dome model allow these mirrors to be fixed straight to the ceiling or wall without a steel frame due to the pressed holes in the stainless steel edge, whilst an anti-pik filler is used to further minimise any risk of ligatures.

The Institutional Polycarbonate range, available as Quarter or Half Face models, features an extremely hard wearing mirror face of premium quality 3mm or 4.5mm polycarbonate with a tensile strength of 9,400psi. These are designed to resist repeated blows thanks to flexible protective coatings that prevent delamination of the mirror face upon impact. The mirror face is secured within a strong anti-ligature powder-coated steel frame to prevent removal, with secure fixing lugs ensuring that the frame cannot be tampered with when fixed to a wall or ceiling.
