Specifically manufactured for applications where safety is of great concern, No-Shank® products are flexible, unbreakable and clear removing the opportunity to create shanks or hide contraband promoting greater security at your facility.

No-Shank® is an excellent choice for high security areas and suicide watches.
Over 12 million No-Shank® products have been sold worldwide and no shanks, knives or weapons have been formed. No other manufacturer can make that claim!
