What happens if an intruder breaks the side window or door glass?
If the system is engaged, access by the intruder would be difficult as it requires 2 hands to release the system from the inside. A device unique to this system, is required to release the door latch from the hallway. The door latch has a strong spring system ensuring a strong catch to the door. The door latch system may be placed at any height on the door and frame, as long as the system is installed no higher than 48” from the ground as required by Illinois State Bill 1371 and the NFPA 2018 Code recommendation.

All authorized personnel and first responders will be provided with the release tool.
What if the system is activated while a teacher is out of the classroom?
