Whether lighting a 19th century prison or a “state of the art” facility, safety is the key consideration for the custodial sector. Ensuring the wellbeing of prisoners and operational personnel is of the utmost importance.
In the interactive diagram below we have identified typical custodial lighting applications. We focus on the principles of good lighting and the 4Cs (cost of ownership, compliance, construction and capability). Please move your cursor through the illustration and click on the coloured areas for more information.
Core Lighting Requirements for the Custodial Sector
A custodial luminaire must pass stringent Ministry of Justice (MoJ) standards. This includes real world destruction tests utilising implements that could be available to a prisoner, such as chair legs and pool cues. These luminaires are built to resist impacts up to 250 joules of energy. High ingress protection, tamperproof and flame retardant materials are also incredibly important in this type of environment.
