Three Wall

3-Sided Holding Cells - uses one existing wall

 3-Side cells fit against a single building wall, providing a secure area utilizing one building walls and three wire mesh walls. Door is mounted on the center panel at the end of your partition (as configured), but other setups are available. These cells are configured with posts at each wall and the corners. Your facility wall must be able to accommodate wall or ceiling panels to utilize a 3-sided partition without at-wall post connections.

Four Wall

4-Sided Cells - completely standalone unit can be used in any space

4-Side holding cells are completely stand-alone units that offer a secure space anywhere in your facility that they will physically fit.  The walls do not require connections to existing facility walls because it is completely freestanding.  The door on these cages are mounted on the center panel at the end of your partition, but other configurations are available.  These cells are configured with posts at each corner, and at doors or in support areas as needed.


All-welded Benches are a standard 13" wide and easily anchored to the floor so that the detainees cannot remove or manipulate them. Since there is no hardware, benches cannot be disassembled and cannot be thrown or moved by detainees when they are floor anchored. Available with and without handcuff rails.


Select a lock option to increase the versatility of your holding cell facility. Offered are 5-button access locks, dead-bolt, Electro-Magnetic, Coded Card Reader, and Electric Strike locks. Contact us for assistance with lock selection.

Modular, versatile detainee cells for jails, MP posts, arenas, fairgrounds, airports and other venues where secure prisoner detention is needed

Single wall (for a 3-sided room) or dual-wall (for corner installations) are also available.

Woven wire panel systems are used to build prisoner holding cells in correctional and detention centers across the country. Our modular sized panels can be used to construct nearly any size enclosure, in any venue where it is needed. Cells can be removed, reconfigured, or reinstalled with relative ease.

Generally a four-sided cell with 3' x 7' hinged door and ceiling is installed. Two or three sided cells may be installed where existing building walls are secure. If a wire ceiling is not desired, the wall panels may be built to reach the building ceiling. Holding cells require the assembly hardware to be installed on the outside of the enclosure. For added security, heavy 3/8" hardware may be brazed, tack welded, or pinned. Unique design prevents access to hardware from the secure side of the enclosure. System installs fast with standard hand tools; uses heavy 3/8" assembly hardware. Open but secure design allows free circulation of existing lighting, HVAC, and fire suppression systems throughout enclosure. Heavy duty options available for facilities requiring additional security.

Customer specified locks may be integrated into the system as well.


Anchorable 10-gauge steel benches may be added to the cell or purchased separately. An optional 1" diameter handcuff rail may be added for prisoner lockdown.
