Newcastle Joinery Limited (NJL), specialists in industry-leading furniture for the custodial sector, today launched their new CastleSafe Plus range designed to meet the specific demands of modern Safer Cell environments.
An innovative solid surface material is used throughout. When in contact with natural or artificial light its active properties allow air purification, elimination of harmful bacteria and ensure easy cleaning. The material is also non-porous and in the case of a flooded cell it can stand in 10mm of water with no damage or deterioration.
The CastleSafe Plus range complies fully with the new Ministry of Justice Technical Standards issued in March 2019.
CastleSafe Plus is an evolution of NJL’s existing CastleSafe range. Created for use in environments where occupants can be disruptive and where self-harm is a risk, CastleSafe Plus is designed to withstand at least a half tonne of upward and downward force making it exceptionally robust. Every piece has been re-engineered and manufactured to offer unrivalledCastleSafe Plus - custodial furniture durability, easy maintenance and repair, reduced ligature and be virtually fireproof.
Jamie Greenwood, Managing Director of NJL, said of the new range: “The demands placed on furniture in custodial environments are extremely high. Drawing on our vast expertise and building on the success of our CastleSafe range, we created CastleSafe Plus to set the bar even higher in terms of the safety, durability and function of Safer Cell furniture. This range is the latest example of our continued commitment to the pursuit of innovation and excellence.”
