Correctional Furnishings Evaluation
The benefits of molded furnishings over steel have led to a paradigm shift in the planning and design sections of the corrections industry. For decades steel was the dominant material used to furnish jails and prisons, but the advent of molded polymers has brought significant, positive change to the industry. With the help of modern technology, molded furnishings are engineered to be stronger than steel, and can be infused with antimicrobial additives that contribute to cleaner, safer environments. Colors can be customized to facilitate normative, rehabilitative environments rather than the grim, conventional settings of the past.
