Detention Metal Security Ceilings

Time to Read: 2m 18s

Detention metal security ceilings refers to metal panel ceilings that are used in detention centers, correctional facilities, and other high security applications to prevent intrusion or escape via the ceiling panels. Security ceilings are used to prevent burglaries as well as in detention environments, and are rated both on their ability to withstand a sustained assault and for their acoustical dampening properties.

  • Trussbilt is a leading manufacturer of security products for the detention and homeland security industries, including their detention metal security ceilings.  Trussbilt manufactures security ceilings for minimum, medium, and maximum security applications. Trussbilts TrussWall steel wall panels and TrussDoor detention hollow metal doors and frames combine with their security ceilings for a single souce integrated security package.

Security Ceilings and Accoustics

Metal security ceilings are rated both on their ability to withstand a sustained attempt to breach them, and on their sound dapening properties. For this reason detention security ceilings are often referred to as accoustic security ceilings or ceiling panels. Noise control is an increasing need in prisons, which often exist in a state of perpetual overcrowding. Traditional metal security ceilings can actually transmit sound (metal is an excellent conductor) and increase the noise problem in detention facilities. This increased noise creates poor living conditions for inmates in detention facilities and stressful working environment for correctional officers. Most modern manufacturers of metal security ceilings now incorporate sound-deadening techniques into the design of their ceiling panels. Through choice of material and specific design techniques to minimize the conduction of sound some security ceilings actually have the ability to absorb or dampen sound and reduce the overall noise level in detention facilities.
