Beyond a Lock

The threat of gun violence in schools demands attention across all emergency management mission areas: prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recover.

The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission and the National Association of State Fire Marshals recommend school doors be equipped with locks that can be secured from the inside of the room. Because locks can be disengaged by breaking through the glass, entire door openings should be considered to enhance student and teacher safety. Schools should consider the location, type, and size of the windows within the door when installing a lock system.

The Attack Resistant Door Opening Solution is designed to be affordable, allowing for specification and installment in more openings—because every school deserves a higher level of protection.
