Refurbishment / Non PBDG Cell Windows with alternate fixings.
Our Police Building Design Guide (PBDG) compliant custody suite cell window is suitable for all new build projects but there are many refurbishment schemes to existing police stations where the PBDG window design cannot be incorporated. Openings and structures may not be compatible with the PBDG design thus requiring replacement cell windows to fit within existing apertures. We can manufacture cell windows with arched profile heads, monolithic cills & jambs, projecting reinforcement bars or threaded sockets for cleat fixing to existing reveals.
High Security Rooflights
Our cell window constructions are also extensively used as high security rooflights over custody and cell areas, our rooflight codes are CU/R165/75 & CU/R200/75. Other rooflights within our general product range can also be used in security situations, for further guidance refer to our Technical Department.
