The  S-Vent

The S-Vent, the flagship of Safety Concepts, was born out of a problem of weekly attempted hangings from the air grilles  at a correctional facility several years ago.  The embryonic S-Vent came into existence, and since then, no attempted hangings from these S-Vent grilles have ever been recorded.  Problem solved… Peace of mind.

Safety Concepts Inc. was incorporated, obtained the patent for the S-Vent and launched a marketing program.  It quickly became apparent that the S-Vent successfully resolved other existing problems in corrections, specifically contraband concealment and inmate plugging of grilles due to objectionable air flow.

The S-Vent is truly a problem-solving product in correctional and psychiatric facilities.

ISSUE:         Concealment of drugs & weapons behind air grilles
SOLUTION:  The S-Vent's zigzag air passageways reduces endangerment
                to staff and inmate by preventing contraband concealment.
               
ISSUE:         Hanging suicides from air vents
SOLUTION:  The S-Vent reduces major lawsuits and adverse publicity by
                preventing suicides due to attachment from the grille.


ISSUE:         Plugging of air grilles
SOLUTION:  The S-Vent's directional air flow virtually eliminates plugging.

ISSUE:         Vandalism incidents due to poor air flow and noise
SOLUTION:  The S-Vent has a low noise rating and a unique directional
                air flow to improve inmate physical comfort.       
       

ISSUE:         Expensive retrofitting of modern high-security grilles
SOLUTION:  The S-Vent reduces costs through the use of its patented
                plenum box which eliminates cutting a larger opening.

ISSUE:         Expensive new installations of high-security grilles
SOLUTION:  The S-Vent employs a very efficient installation method
                which saves time and money. The total cost of supply and
                installation of S-Vent grilles is often lower than the supply
                and installation of other cheaper, less secure grilles.
