“School Safe” The Simple Lockdown Solution
School Safe is an ‘anti-latch’ device. It is not a lock. It operates in conjunction with the doors existing lock. School Safe prevents the door from latching by keeping it slightly ajar. The School Safe 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 the School Safe lever is flipped thereby allowing the door to close all the way. Since it was already locked, the classroom is immediately secured without having to use keys, open the door, or venture into the hallway. School Safe comes in four different configurations because a door can open four different ways
School Safe Double Door
School Safe Double Doors (SSDD) is a new anti-latch device designed specifically for double doors that open out and do not have a center mullion. Many double doors used in gyms, auditoriums or hallway exits do not have center jambs or mullions. SSDD attaches vertically on the inside of the door near the top with the ‘pin’ end up and the ‘pull tab’ end down. As with regular School Safe, SSDD extends about 3/8 of an inch out from the door, preventing the strike from entering into the strike plate and latching. So the door, even though locked, cannot latch until the SSDD lever is pulled down allowing the door to close all the way. Since it was already locked, the door is immediately secured without having to use keys.
SCHOOL SAFE SECURITY FILM
School Safe Security Film (SSSF) 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 turned off. This eliminates the need for the teacher to cover the door window. School Safe Security Film comes pre-cut to fit many standard door window sizes, or can be custom cut to your specifications. It can easily be installed by your maintenance staff using our SSSF Installation Kit.

SCHOOL ALERT SYSTEM
The School ALERT (Active Lockdown and Emergency Response Technology) System is a cloud based software solution that empowers school staff by allowing them to initiate a school lockdown from any authorized and configured smart phone, tablet, or desktop PC. This significantly reduces the amount of time between the recognition of a threat and the initiation of a school lockdown.
The School ALERT system integrates with existing electronic door locks and surveillance cameras, allows school staff to check in with location and student counts when safe, and allows school administrators and law enforcement to provide instructions to staff during a lockdown.
What Our Clients Say
“With 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 don’t have to go rummaging across my desk to find my keys.” “When 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.”
“I 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, it’s 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 it’s 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.”
“As we work with the sheriff’s 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.” “I 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.”
“When 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. It’s not a big mechanical device. It’s very simple and easy to use. Again, under stress peoples motor skills tend to diminish and with this device it’s very easy to implement. It’s always in the same place. It rotates very easily and it’s perfect for a lockdown situation.” “Budget 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.”
