Kenosha, Wisconsin (June 18, 2020) – Recently, Kenall Manufacturing introduced a series of four Mighty Mac® correctional luminaires that are virtually impenetrable, with no access points of any kind. Created specifically to keep staff and inmates safe, these luminaires are impervious to vandalism and contraband concealment. Now this series is expanding to include two new wall-mount luminaires; the dual-aperture Mighty Mac® WCBS and the single-aperture WCBHS.
While Kenall is known for extremely secure and durable correctional lighting solutions, but a customer request challenged engineers to create a luminaire with an enhanced level of protection for staff and inmates. The resulting fixture design eliminates the door, replacing it with a heavy-duty housing manufactured from a single piece of steel, preventing entry once the light fixture is installed. Long-life LEDs provide years of service-free illumination, and lenses are made of the toughest materials available and kept in place with a special bracket system fastened to the housing with through-studs. The entire fixture is secured to the wall or ceiling surface with 6 high-security bolts.
As with all Kenall Mighty Mac luminaires, personal safety is the number one priority for Kenall’s design team: “We were asked to create a unique luminaire that prevented access, unless completely removed,” said Tim Stevens, Kenall Product Manager. “The engineers really came through for the correctional community. The progress made in LED technology in recent years minimizes lighting maintenance and this, in turn, dramatically reduces inmate disruption, which protects everyone’s well-being,” Stevens concluded.
These unique Mighty Mac luminaires smaller housing is optimized for cells, making them less intrusive. The first of their kind, these new fixtures introduce an unprecedented level of security for both staff and inmates.
