Cubicle systems for correctional facilities

Cubicle system for correctional facility

A correctional facility is not a bed of roses. The interior fittings in general and the cubicle systems in particular are subject to conditions that are far more extreme than in any other area of application

For many years, meta has been supplying correctional facilities with cleverly designed custom solutions. So far, we have installed approx. 1,300 construction elements in over 40 correctional facilities throughout Germany. Our experience and know-how in this field feeds back into the further development of our "standard products", thus further improving the safety of our cubicle systems, for example for kindergartens. In this way, all of our customers benefit.

No unauthorised dismantling

Snake-eye screws
Although it may appear at first glance that the so-called snake-eye screws cannot be removed, practice has shown that they can be removed with even something as simple as a fork.
Pin Torx Screw
Pin Torx Screws, on the other hand, are much more difficult to remove. That is why we only use these screws for attaching removable parts to our cubicle systems for correctional facilities. Non-removable elements are riveted into place.
