PKL has extensive experience of the unique requirements of the custodial sector and has worked closely with the prison service and catering managers to optimise temporary kitchen designs and take advantage of the latest technologies.

PKL was the first company in the UK to provide open plan temporary kitchens to the custodial sector and has been doing so since 2000.

Each PKL temporary kitchen is designed and installed to meet the particular requirements of every individual project, with major emphasis on early dialogue between all parties at the early design stages. These are just some of the key features of a PKL temporary kitchen: 


  • Clear line of sight through careful engineering
  • Minimised internal walls and supporting columns
  • Low partitions
  • Siting of extraction canopies to aid visibility
  • High light levels
  • Strengthened floors for goods-in areas
  • Bump rails in high traffic areas
  • Enhanced protection for rooftop H&V plant
  • Tempered air to maintain comfort conditions efficiently
  • Entrance porch to prevent slip hazards
  • Siting of temporary buildings to ensure security is not compromised
  • Staff training
  • Planned and reactive maintenance
  • O&M manuals

System kitchens

When catering facilities need to be extended to meet increased demand a PKL System Kitchen can be the ideal solution. These are permanent, modular commercial kitchen buildings designed and built using the latest in offsite construction methods.

Offsite construction, which takes place in a factory-controlled environment, takes place simultaneously with onsite works to accelerate the overall project time.

Contingency Planning

PKL provides kitchen contingency planning guides, so that in the event that a prison is faced with a sudden loss of catering facilities, they are fully prepared and able to restore foodservice provision with minimal disruption.

Emergency response

In the event of an emergency that causes damage to kitchens, PKL can also mobilise temporary kitchens and catering equipment very quickly, including ‘ready chilled’ coldrooms and freezers that can be despatched immediately.

Individual items of catering equipment can also be hired and delivered next day in the event of an emergency breakdown.
