Why Are Wire Mesh Partitions So Important for Police Vehicles?

Almost every law enforcement agency relies on mesh partitions for police vehicles. A partition can improve the safety of passengers, officers, and cargo while also improving the vehicle’s overall functionality. Wire grid partitions give officers additional assurance that they will be safe and fully equipped with the proper gear to carry out their work.

What Is the Purpose of Wire Mesh Partitions and Why Are They Important?

A wire grid partition separates officers occupying the vehicle’s front seats from detainees in the rear seats. The mesh grid functions as an additional layer of protection if the detainee somehow escapes their handcuffs and attacks. The wire partition also protects passengers—like K9 officers, visitors, or detainees—during accidents or high-speed chases. It is vital for officers to protect detainees while transporting them, as an injury while in an officer’s custody could result in expensive lawsuits.

Wire mesh partitions can also protect important cargo in transit, such as firearms and evidence from a crime scene.

What Are the Key Benefits of Using Wire Mesh Partitions?

Wire mesh partitions are superior to solid partitions in a variety of ways:

  • Visibility: Solid barriers offer little to no visibility. Wire partitions offer excellent visibility for officers to monitor detainees.
  • Lighting: Solid partitions require additional lighting, while wire partitions need only one light source.
  • Airflow: Solid barriers impede airflow and may require additional ventilation.
  • Customizable: Wire mesh partitions are easier to install, lightweight, and highly flexible for a custom fit in almost any space.
  • Durability: Wire mesh partitions can resist bolt-cutting and have the durability to block aggressive attacks, including those from sledgehammers.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Wire mesh partitions offer high value and quality at a lower cost.
