Low Security Facility

Regular visitation helps prisoners to strengthen family ties which in turn contributes to lower re-offending after release. When refurbishing their visitor centre, the client was keen to “break the mould”. They wanted to create a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere which would benefit prisoners, visitors and officers alike.

We provided informal seating, upholstered in vibrant leather-effect vinyl which can be easily cleaned with a damp microfibre cloth thanks to their water-resistant properties. The chairs have anti-stash seams as standard, improving safety throughout the rest of the prison by reducing the potential for exchange of contraband.

“You can see it on the families’ faces when they walk in… it’s got the feel-good factor.”
