Contract Textiles for the Custodial Sector
The Security and Custodial Sectors have very special needs.
These relate to the supply of Fire Retardant products which meet exacting Prison or Detention Centre specifications.
Thomas Kneale are increasingly required to supply products compliant to BS 7175 Ignition Source 7 for Prisons and Source 5 for Detention, Immigration and Removal Centres, STCs and Asylum Seekers accommodation (please refer to Videos).
Crucial to this customer sector is on time deliveries and the expectation that Thomas Kneale will hold sufficient stock to meet sudden demand whether caused by laundry fire, unexpected surge in inmate numbers or other unforeseen occurrence.
Specialist products such as seclusion blankets, pillows and anti-ligature clothing are stocked as well as prisoner/detainee clothing including pocketless jogging bottoms and Velcro footwear without laces.
Bespoke Flame Retardant Cell Curtains are manufactured incorporating Velcro Header Tape or tiny magnet hang fasteners to meet Health and Safety requirements.
