Norix Group, a leading provider of specialized corrections industry furniture and fixtures, introduces a new type of heavy-duty tote box called Citadel™ for the storage of inmates’ records or other personal property. The allowable in-cell container offers superior storage capacity and enhanced safety features to meet the specialized needs of detention facilities.

The Citadel™ storage box is engineered for superior strength without excessive weight. The innovative, ribbed construction delivers molded-in 3D dimensional structure with a 2.2 cu.ft. storage capacity. The flexible polypropylene material absorbs impact, while the radiused corners and smooth edges offer greater safety. The Citadel™ box can be installed with a bunk-rail system to create drawer storage under a steel bunk.

The unique lid design on the Citadel™ thwarts tampering with a secure, positive engagement to the box, making it difficult to pop-off. The built-in ergonomic handle features a molded hasp for locking. Raised nubs on the top of the lid marry with the bottom of the tote box to make stacking neat and efficient. Citadel™ is certified to pass CAL TB 133 flammability test and is 100% recyclable.

“Citadel™ is the next generation of detention-grade storage containers. The bigger size, rounded corners, and one-of-a-kind secure lid design are important features in a corrections environment,” said Brad Karl, Product Manager for Norix Group. “Options like the flexibility of using it as either a box or a bunk drawer come from having a long and collaborative history with correctional facility managers.”

Norix will debut Citadel™ at the 2013 American Correctional Association Winter Conference in Houston, Texas, January 25-30. Specifications and images for downloading can be found at: . For other specialized furnishings for jails and prisons, please visit:
