âSchool Safeâ The Simple School Lockdown Solution
School Safe, the simple and affordable school lockdown device, is an âanti-latchâ device, not a lock. It operates in conjunction with the doors existing lock. School SafeÂ prevents the door from latching by keeping it slightly ajar.Â TheÂ School SafeÂ lever extends about 3/8 of an inch out from the jamb or door, thereby preventing the strike from entering into the strike plate and latching. So the door, even though locked, will never latch until theÂ School SafeÂ lever is flipped thereby allowing the door to close all the way.Â Since it was already locked, the classroom is immediately secured without having to use keys, open the door, or ventureÂ into the hallway. School SafeÂ comes in four different configurations because a door can open four different ways. NOTE: Each School Safe lockdown device ordered comes with a protective pad, a lock down label, and an alcohol wipe.
School Safe Double Door
School Safe Double Doors (SSDD) is a new school lockdown anti-latch device designed specifically forÂ double doors that open out and do not have a centerÂ mullion. Many double doors used in gyms, auditoriums or hallway exits do not have center jambs or mullions. SSDD attaches vertically on theÂ inside of the door near the top with the âpinâ end up and the âpull tabâ end down. As with regular School Safe, SSDD extends about 3/8 of an inchÂ out from the door, preventing the strike from entering into the strike plate and latching. So the door, even though locked, cannot latch untilÂ theÂ SSDDÂ lever is pulled down allowing the door to close all the way.Â Since it was already locked, the door is immediately secured without havingÂ to use keys.
SCHOOL SAFE SECURITY FILM
School Safe Security Film (SSSF) is one of our new school lockdown products that installs on the door glass and allows the room to be viewed from the hallway when the lights in the room are on, but becomes reflective, like a mirror, on the hallway side of the door when the lights in the room are turnedÂ off. This eliminates the need for the teacher to cover the door window.Â School Safe Security Film comes cut to your specifications. It can easily be installed by your maintenance staff following our simple installation procedures.

What Our Clients Say
âWith School Safe, as a teacher and a parent it gives me a sense of security knowing that should we need to lockdown the building quickly, all I need to do is flip a switch and I donât have to go rummaging across my desk to find my keys.â âWhen I talk to parents about School Safe, I find that they are very excited knowing that our school has taken this step to protect their children.â
âI think that School Safe and Global Innovations, with the development of this product, is very intriguing to me because it provides a cost effective way for school districts to address their lockdown procedures. With the advent of 911 and other terrorist incidents, such as Columbine, itâs a very high priority for the school districts. That becomes problematic for the fire service to gain entrance and egress to individual classrooms because of lockdown situations. I think itâs a good compromise that can provide lockdown capability, but we can also mitigate our search and rescue from a life safety standpoint in a much faster way.â
âAs we work with the sheriffâs department and the fire department on our safety plan, I was pleased when one of our local firemen met with me and talked about this product. Because it showed me that it was something that was not only supported by our school but was also supported by the agencies that support our school in an emergency.â âI was really pleased to find out that for a couple hundred dollars School Safe puts all of the classrooms, in a very large school such as ours, in safe mode when we lockdown.â
âWhen School Safe staff came to me, they gave me the device to look at, and the first thing I noticed was how simple it was. Itâs not a big mechanical device. Itâs very simple and easy to use. Again, under stress peoples motor skills tend to diminish and with this device itâs very easy to implement. Itâs always in the same place. It rotates very easily and itâs perfect for a lockdown situation.â âBudget concerns are a big thing now especially in schools and businesses. So this device is exceptional when you think about the safety of kids, the safety in the workplace, and just the amount of money to get this device installed is very minimal.â
