Correctional Furniture by Norix Displayed at American Correctional Association Conference
Norix Furniture, a producer of durable and aesthetically pleasing products made for intensive use, will showcase select lines of correctional furniture during the American Correctional Association’s 146th Congress of Correction on August 5-10 in Boston. Founded in 1870 as the National Prison Association, “ACA is the oldest association developed specifically for practitioners in the correctional profession,” according to its website.
Visitors to Norix Furniture’s Booth #622 will have the opportunity to speak with company representatives and view multiple products including our new and innovative Custody Marathon Seamless Mattress. This product has no strings, no seams and no stitches. That’s because Marathon is made with a nearly ¼ inch seamless, vinyl skin exterior that is rotationally molded in one piece – not sewn or stitched. It’s also filled with cushioned polyurethane foam for comfort and comes with an integrated double sided pillow for added safety and security.
The unique construction of Marathon protects against untimely breakdown and loft loss, providing facilities a product with comfortable and long-lasting lumbar support. In addition to the features listed above, Marathon is:
- Heavyweight to deter use as a barrier or weapon.
- Non-absorbent and fluid resistant.
- Built with no seams for bedbugs to invade.
- Chemically resistant to bodily fluids, vinegar, salt solutions and chlorine solution.
