Vistamatic secure vision panels have been installed at the new state-of-the-art £7.5 million divisional police headquarters for the Lincolnshire Police Authority in Grantham.

They offer a practical solution for environments where the opening of doors needs to be kept to a minimum, or where it would be an advantage to see before physically entering or leaving a room.

The panels provide controlled access into secure areas by the simple operation of a lever mechanism. In the open position the panel is clear for observation, in the closed position the panel becomes opaque for complete privacy. The panels have been installed into the doors of the intox, detox, photo and fingerprint rooms, custody suites, incident, interview and waiting rooms.

Project manager, Inspector Barry Steele, explained: “Our old station was no longer able to deal with the demands of modern policing, and did not comply with the latest Home Office advice on safety and security. With the new facility we now have safer detention of prisoners in an environment designed to cope with these demands. We have a duty of care to look after the welfare of everybody in the custody suite and these vision panels have provided invaluable assistance in helping us to achieve this.”
