Gary Manufacturing is a trusted provider of quality, reliable shower curtains for correctional facilities throughout North America.
We have extensive experience in the design and manufacture of specialized prison and jail shower curtains, with safety-conscious Velcro and snap fasteners, breakaway construction, HDPE plastic grommets, and see-thru panels to meet PREA shower curtain requirements. In addition, we offer a variety of customizations to meet the specific needs of your facility, including see-thru panels, mesh tops, rod pockets, fold-overs, and custom sizing.
Features of Shower Curtains for Prisons
At Gary Manufacturing, we understand that facilities require different shower curtain designs for optimal safety and to meet regulatory requirements. These regulations may vary by state and institution. This is why we offer a wide selection of designs and features, so you have the best option to meet your needs. The primary features of our prison shower curtains include:
- Break Away: Break away shower curtains are designed to come undone when weight is applied, thereby preventing potentially dangerous entanglement in the curtain.
- See-Thru Panel: In order to improve visibility and safety, we offer an array of see-thru vinyl materials. They can be added as panels at the top and/or bottom of the curtain and can be used in conjunction with our mesh tops. This allows the curtain to meet PREA standards of reasonable expectation of privacy.
- Mesh Top: We offer 12″ or 22″ mesh panels along the top of our shower curtains to allow for enhanced prisoner visibility, safety, and steam reduction.
- HDPE Plastic Grommet: Our HDPE plastic grommets are designed to be in compliance with Prop 65 for use in California institutions for enhanced user safety. Because there is no metal, there is less risk of injury.
- Rod Pocket Fasteners: Our curtains are available with rod pockets designed to function with curtain rods instead of hooks.
- Fold-Over Design: Our fold-over designs are easy to install. Simply fold the curtain over the rod and secure with Velcro or snap fasteners.
- Velcro to Wall or Ceiling Option: We offer self-adhesive Velcro for easy installation. Velcro easily pulls apart and can be quickly put back in place.
- Stall Width Sizes: We can fulfill orders with standard-size shower curtains from 36-72″ wide, or we can create custom-sized shower curtains to your specifications.
- Custom Sizes for Extra-Long or Extra-Wide areas: We can make curtains in any size needed for your facility. We seam vinyl panels to make curtains larger than standard openings and will add 6-8” for fullness.
