Building a safer Victoria – Loddon Prison Expansion

Due to be completed in the middle of 2014, the new 236-bed Loddon Prison Facility is the first stage of the overall $76 million upgrade and expansion underway at Loddon.

The new facility will represent a new type of security classification – restricted minimum – sitting outside the existing prison walls, but with its own secure perimeter.

Loddon Prison currently accommodates medium-security male prisoners serving mainly medium and long-term sentences for a range of offences. It also accommodates some prisoners with disability or other complex needs.

Working with Kane Constructions, Ansa Doors has successfully tendered for the supply and installation of a range of door products that include both commercial and industrial roller shutters.

Loddon opened in August 1990 as a replacement for the old Castlemaine Gaol, which originally opened in 1861 to service the goldfields and surrounding towns.

Dover Roller Shutters engineer, Bryan Courtney, attended the ConExpo-Con/Agg Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada this past week.  ConExpo-Con/Agg had over 2400 exhibitors showcasing new products and technologies from every major construction industry.  There were over 125,000 attendees including contractors, dealers, distributors, engineers, municipalities, and more.

Companies displaying trucks with our doors consisted of Maintainer Corporation (3), Summit Truck Body (1), IMT (4), Sage Oil Vac (2), and Ram Vac. (1).  Dover Roller Shutters dominated the roll up doors displayed with only one of our competitor’s doors present at the show.  Despite this, there remains a vast amount of opportunity to apply Dover products to other vehicles and applications.  As companies see the benefits and ease of installation of roll up doors, we expect to see many more displayed in the future.
