Kane's superior detention products are a direct result of 100 years of manufacturing experience and our commitment to engineering excellence.

The Kane Detention team draws experience from hundreds of thousands of successful installations in detention facilities like jails, courthouses, prisons and other institutions that require the highest levels of security.

Kane Detention Products are the preferred choice of the United States Marshals Service for secure areas in all Federal Courthouses. In addition, we have been chosen by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to secure their commercial properties nationwide. Kane Detention is also the leading manufacturer of custom barriers for corrections. In fact, the patented Vantage-Wall system revolutionized the safeguarding of correctional staff and personnel while setting the standard for security performance.

Security Screens


Kane Detention's security screens work with existing operable windows and are available in three levels of protection: Minimum - to prevent vandalism and forced entry; medium - to deter escape; and maximum - to contain detainees within prison walls.

  • Steel Angle Frame Security Screen (LEVEL 5: MINIMUM SECURITY)
  • Steel Vanguard Security Screen (LEVEL 6: MEDIUM SECURITY)
  • Steel Defender Interview Screen (LEVEL 7: MAXIMUM SECURITY)



Barriers by Kane Detention prevent prisoners from moving between secured and unsecured areas. They also keep inmates separate from one another. Barriers are available for walkways, recreation yards, window openings, ceiling enclosures and more.

Detention Ceiling


  • Kane Security Plank Ceiling System (LEVEL 9: MAXIMUM BARRIER SECURITY)

The Kane Security Ceiling System is a unique and high security solution for detention ceilings for criminal justice facilities. The ceiling is a 14 gauge steel plank design with perforated holes on the face to allow for sound to filter through. The sound is then absorbed by 3lb density insulation that meets all fire safety codes. The insulation is backed up by a solid 14 gauge steel plate for additional security and sound trapping. Kane's Security Ceiling system is custom designed for each installation. These high security interlocking ceiling systems are designed for both new installations and retrofits.

  • Secure Metal Pan Ceiling System (LEVEL 7: MEDIUM BARRIER SECURITY)

For years, the Security Metal Pan Ceiling System has been an important product in the security metal ceiling business. It affords the end user a medium level of security, since there is no easy access into the plenum space at any point in the ceiling except via special exit panels or access doors. The panels are held in place by engaging the splayed upturned legs under the square bulb of an extra-heavy-duty suspension system.
