School Security
A Look at Classroom Door Locking Solutions
There is fast-growing public concern for the safety and security of our schools. As a result, many products and solutions related to Emergency School Lockdowns are surfacing in the marketplace. Many of these new arrivals to the market place, although designed with school security in mind, do not necessarily follow established standards and code requirements. In this presentation, we will examine current, code-compliant locking devices and practices, but also consider the concerns and issues surrounding others that are not.
Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize resources available for School Security recommendations
  • Identify currently available security methods and solutions
  • Review some of the “barricading” devices on the market today
  • Consider codes and requirements that affect hardware selection
