Tabor Correctional Institution

Tabor City, NC


The 1000 cell detention facility was the sixth and final project of a prototypical design built for the State of North Carolina.  This facility contained 410,233 square feet .  It  was the first of these projects on which Norment participated and based on commendations from the Construction Manager,  the project was very successful.

Norment provided detention equipment work consisting of furnishing and installing security doors and frames, security glass, security swing door hardware, security sliding door devices, compressed air systems, security furniture, security mesh, bar grate and plate work.  The security pneumatic swing door locks and pneumatic sliding door devices were provided by the Airteq division of Norment Security Group, Inc.

Norment also provided the integrated security electronics system, through its Trentech division, which consisted of touch screen stations, CCTV systems, audio systems and locking control systems all programmed to operate through PLC controllers.

Norment’s contract amount for this project was $ 9.0 million and it is one of many successful projects Norment has completed in the State of North Carolina that included Airteq and Trentech products
