Services to streamline your projects


We stress matching the right product to the intended application, and we achieve this by working closely with architects and end-users to ensure those design objectives are met.


Proper product selection frequently goes beyond application. It often requires additional support such as detailed product drawings, space planning, and wiring schematics. Our goal is to optimize the layout of your design or facility for efficiency and functionality.

Specification Writing

Concise contract documents are critical to any project. You can be confident in our years of experience providing project specific specifications. We can ensure your documents meet the intention of your design and are in compliance with industry standards.


Whether working up a list of replacement items for an RFP – or calculating the FF&E requirements for a dayroom, we have years of experience in compiling budgets to support your efforts to secure funding.

Installation & Maintenance

RTD works closely with a group of detention equipment contractors that can provide you with the installation or maintenance support you need for your specialty equipment.

Facility Support

We take pride in the long-term relationships we have developed with end-users. We offer on-site equipment evaluations, product training, and we can even help structure RFP specs.
