Stock Panels

The panels come in increments of one-foot and have a range of 1′ to 10′. Panel heights can reach up to 4′ or 5′.

High-Level Security

WireCrafters uses a unique partition design for their cages that helps to prevent access to any hardware on the holding cell’s secure side. There are heavy duty models available for organizations and facilities which require improved security.

Making Use of an Existing System

Our secure and open design makes for increased circulation of any existing systems including HVAC, fire suppression, and lighting.

Temporary Cells

Our Style 840 partition systems are used in the construction of temporary prisoner cells that are used in detention and correctional facilities around the country. These cells are specifically designed to hold individuals while they are in temporary confinement either during processing or detainment. Our strong partition panels have a wide range of configurations in order to meet the unique needs of each facility.

Cell Ceilings and Doors

Prisoners and detainees are held within the cell by hinged doors that come with secure locking devices. The ceiling panels are built with the same material as other parts of the holding cells. Our special design helps to prevent unauthorized access to any hardware from the holding cell’s secure side. Our wire partition cell system is quick and easy to install. There is no need for specific or expensive tools. WireCrafters specifically designed these holding cells with the functioning of existing systems in mind. There is an open concept that allows for the free circulation of HVAC, lighting, fire suppression, and other systems that are currently operating in any facility. There are more robust options available for organizations that require advanced security.

Locking Details

WireCrafters manufactures its holding cells with standard mortise locks that come in a cylindrical format. These devices are self-locking and have a tongue with spring action. For facilities requiring tighter security, we offer a dead latch lock as well. Bottom and top slide bolts can also be built into the door. If you have a specific lock requirement, we can offer bespoke manufacturing options.
