Leading the Correctional Industry in Safety Innovation
Shanks Virtually Eliminated After Extensive Research and Design Leads to development of a New Stronger Flexible Plastic Ideal for Correctional Facilities.
Cleveland, Ohio – Briarwood Products proudly announces the release of its newest line of Shank-Free and Metal Free cleaning tools for correctional facilities. The product line was developed by Briarwood in response to widespread safety concerns from correctional officers.
Safety Managers previously began replacing metal tools (used by inmates to make “shanks”) with hard plastic tools. They discovered that creative inmates were sharpening the hard plastic and hand-crafting shanks. Briarwood Products new tools are made from a special rubbery plastic that virtually eliminates shanks. The unique polymer used cannot be sharpened like other standard hard plastics. Inmates cannot form or re-form the plastic into a new shank or shank handle.
100% Made in the USA, and currently being used in Correctional facilities throughout the world.
