Schools, Colleges, and Universities

From childcare centers to universities, the safety of students and teachers within the educational system is critical. Sadly, violent acts can occur in every level of academia. Additionally, research shows that children who feel unsafe often struggle in performance. Therefore, a safe learning environment allows students to focus on developing critical skills.

Preparation saves lives in the event of an emergency, and identifying the best school security solutions is the best place to start. At School Safety Solution, we offer safety options designed by educators for educators.

Lockdown Shades

Our Hideaway Helper Lockdown Shade is simple, fast, and effective. Made with high-quality blackout fabric, the Hideaway classroom door window shade includes a weighted hem-bar for complete coverage throughout the entire duration of an emergency. The Hideaway Helper is fire retardant (NFPA 701 compliant), customizable, and easy to install.

While not in use, the shade can be rolled up and secured in place with its Velcro tab. Therefore, it will be out of the way throughout a normal school day. However, in the case of an emergency, the shade quickly deploys with a swift tug on the Velcro tab. The shade is unrolled, remaining in place until rolled into its former position. An extension strap is available for quick deployment over windows located in high or hard to reach places.

Since 2013, over 120,000 Hideaway Helper lockdown shades have been installed in over 2,500 schools and organizations.

Door Barricades

TeacherLock™ Classroom Door Lock

TeacherLock™ is one of the quickest door barricades on the market, compliant with International Building Code, ADA, and NFPA Life Safety guidelines. This classroom door lock option is cost-effective, easy to install, and bullyproof. Therefore, only individuals with the activator can trigger the lock.

The bolting mechanism can be deployed within seconds. Additionally, the easy-to-orient activator prevents teachers from having to bend over or kneel to floor level to activate.

TeacherLock™ II Classroom Door Lock

Similar to its sister product in many ways, the TeacherLock™ II is designed for states that require a single operation to unlock and open the door in a fire emergency.

Safebolt™ Barricade Lock

Safebolt™ allows for instant keyless lockdown. Designed for simple, fast, and effective classroom safety, Safebolt allows teachers to activate the lock with the press of a red button. This approach then allows teachers to focus on sheltering or evacuating students, as the emergency requires. Safebolt Barricade Lock is code-compliant and can be activated by outside key entry by staff and first responders.
