Modular Jail Cell Upfit
Door The module typically
is shipped to the job with the door installed. Door fit tolerances
are unusually tight. This requires careful attention to forming and
to pre and post pour checks of the door frame. Doorframes will move
when the module is lifted, requiring careful attention when the module
is fastened to the floor.
Paint Module walls
are painted with epoxy paint. Paint finish must be high-gloss and
near pinhole free. It is difficult to get consistently good results
with epoxy. Strict process controls are required.
Furniture Steel furniture
is attached with security fasteners to cast-in inserts. Sometimes
it is a challenge to get the spec changed to allow security fasteners instead
Light Security lighting
is fastened to the ceiling and connected to cell module wiring through
glazing is required in the window and the door. Glazing installation
spec details require close attention.
housing cells are usually fitted with a stainless steel toilet-sink combination
unit. Function testing of the valves and pipes is essential.
Caulk Security caulk
is required at all joints, such as furniture and combo unit attachment
joints, where a gap could allow contraband to be hidden. Workmanship
can be a problem.
Chase Job spec typically
requires the chase to be fully upfitted in the plant. This includes:
Pressure water Typically
copper water lines
Typically cast iron
Includes dampers and cast-in security grills
Typically hot water pipes and supply ducts.
Wiring is brought to a chase junction box.
Electrical and security conduits cast in
All plumbing and electric fixtures must be function tested. Additionally,
they typically must pass code required tests including water pressure tests,
waste line pressure tests, and dielectric (high voltage) tests on the electrical
wiring. It is important to fish all conduit to detect kinks
