Quick Action Lockdown Classroom
The Guardian QAL classroom lock allows you to instantly deadbolt a classroom door while maintaining 100% fire code compliance. When needed, pressing the red button instantly throws the deadbolt to the locked position.
Stop the Bleed Emergency Kits
Stop the Bleed kits include a nylon carry bag containing pressure dressings, gauze bandages, tourniquets, and other tools, along with clear, easy to understand instructions to help you in an emergency situation.
Classroom Lockdown Shades
During an active shooter incident or other attack, classroom safety can depend on intruders not knowing if the room is occupied or not. Lockdown shades help ensure safety in the classroom by preventing anyone from seeing inside.
