Case Study - New Cork Prison locks down with Lava Access Control
Cork Prison is a closed, medium security prison for adult males. It is the committal prison for counties Cork, Kerry and Waterford. Conditions in the old prison were wholly inadequate, both in terms of its size and its lack of in-cell sanitation. Construction of a new €45m prison in Cork commenced in January 2014 and opened in February 2016. The new prison was designed to accommodate 169 cells with an operational capacity 275. Optimising the security of the new prison was one of the core infrastructural considerations for the Prison Service.
Lava Group designed and developed an Access Control and Door Locking system tailored to the needs of Cork prison which included the supply, installation and commissioning of all related equipment.Download
