West Kimberley Region Prison is a 150 bed mixed security, mixed gender facility located near the town of Derby. Working in conjunction with the project architects and the Department of Corrective Services Marshall Beattie Automation successfully delivered the goods again, supplying and installing the Sally Port doors for the main gatehouse, the prisoner reception and the vehicle and personnel gates for all persons and vehicles in and out of the prison.

In addition to supplying all of the actual doors and gates, the company supplied and installed all associated electrical, electronic and mechanical interfaces.

A lengthy design and approval process was required, followed by three months of manufacture and twelve weeks on site installing the products. Around ten Marshall Beattie Automation staff worked on the project.

The challenges were not only the remoteness of the site, but also the weather conditions associated with the Kimberley. Cyclone design requirements meant that all the gates and doors had to be twice the usual size, and able to withstand severe punishment from cyclonic conditions.

“We love the 'you can’t do that' or 'that’s never been done' motivation." said Marshall Beattie Directors,

Frank Marshall and Clive Beattie.


“We have grown a reputation for being able to consult, design, manufacture and install the entire project. We work closely with the client to ensure they receive the product to a high standard on time and on budget."


“We service all of Western Australia and have completed many large industrial projects here and Australia wide which we still maintain, with 11 vehicles on the road servicing the state.


“Working with Paul Connelly, Kurt Sivalops and, of course, Laurie Morris (thanks for the onsite assistance Laurie) from Cooper and Oxley on the West Kimberley Regional Correctional Facility was fantastic.”

Absolute reliability, strength and durability for the gates and doors are a consummate requirement for a project like the West Kimberley Regional Correctional Facility.
