Our Space Saver Plus Prisoner Transport Partitions offer agencies to means to maintain prisoner compartment openness in smaller sedans without compromising the comfort of the officer who must drive the vehicle all day. At Pro-gard, we realize that for your patrol officers, the driver’s seat becomes the command post of their mobile office. When we design our partitions, we start with the officer’s comfort in mind.
We design our Partitions, including the new Space Saver Plus Partitions, to mount far enough back on the vehicle’s B-Pillar so they do not limit the OEM seat travel. This means that the full backward travel of the driver’s seat is maintained. We then tilt the partition backward and the mid-point to allow for adequate recline of the driver’s seat as well. The tilt at the mid-point also serves the purpose of increasing foot well room at the base of the partition. While this does increase prisoner leg room, it also eliminates potential counter-leverage spots that can impede loading and unloading prisoners.
The Space Saver Plus Prisoner Transport Partitions are currently available for the current body style of the Dodge Charger and the Ford PI Sedan. The partition can be utilized with the OEM seat and still maintain adequate seating room for the prisoner. But for the full benefit, we recommend paring the partition with our Prisoner Transport Seats and Floor Pans to maximize the space.
