New Year, New Products

It’s a new year and Briarwood Products is gearing up to release new products which are guaranteed to add to the overall safety and security of your facility. 

Be on the lookout for:

  • Briarwood Products Prison Safe Shank-Free and Metal Free Toilet Bowl Brush. Most toilet bowl brushes are made from a hard plastic that can easily be handcrafted or sharpened into a weapon. The toilet bowl brush Briarwood Products is gearing up to release in 2021 is made from a soft plastic that is unable to be sharpened into a weapon but strong and durable to perform its cleaning task. 
  •  Briarwood Products will also be releasing 2 Prison Safe Shank-Free Small Trash Cans for intended use in meeting rooms and cells. Both trash cans are made from specialized shank-free material which is unable to be sharpened. 

Eliminate Physical Contact with Pass Through Cleaning Tools

The Pass Through Cleaning Tools are a suite of specialized shank-free cleaning tools designed specifically to fit through a cell door pass through to eliminate physical contact between officers and guards. By eliminating the opening and closing of cell doors and physical contact, these tools enhance the overall security and allow inmates to safely clean their cells.

The Pass Through tooling consists of: #6021-SH9 Angled Sweeping Broom, #6010 Dust Pan, #9029-SH Wet Mop. 

What to consider when purchasing cleaning supplies

The most common weapons used against corrections staff come from items issued to inmates.

What to consider when purchasing cleaning supplies for your facility

  • Are the tools made from Wood, Metal, Fiberglass, or Plastic?

  • Do the products/supplies eliminate the ability to be sharpened into a weapon or shank?

  • Are the products strong and durable?

  • Are the products resistent to bacteria, mold, or mildew?

  • How many other facilities have adopted the products?


“Anything we can do to enhance security, everybody is onboard. Since the introduction of the Briarwood Products line to our facility, we have reduced instances where offender cleaning products have been compromised for malicious intentions and staff has greater sense of security.” – Lt. Wine Ohio State Penitentiary

“I always tell the individuals that have inquired and spoken to me about Briarwood that our goal is to, of course, protect ourselves first, but we’re here to protect the inmates as well, and if there’s anything that we can do to prevent an inmate to cause bodily harm to the officers or other inmates, we are supposed to focus on that. If you want a product that is durable and shank-free Briarwood is the product that you want to go with.” – Anonymous

“This is what we use after a riot where wooden broomsticks were snapped in half to make spears. Seem pretty durable and never caused any problems.” Doug Thomas – Corrections1 Facebook post: Why off the shelf cleaning products aren’t up to the task in corrections 

“The service was great. I was glad to receive the order on time and at a great price.” – Dana Y. Amazon Customer
