Make any office or classroom a safe room! The Bearacade® Lockdown Response System deploys quickly and easily on any interior inward- or outward-swinging door in the event of a hostile intruder emergency to prevent the door from opening in either direction. One unit can also secure many interior double doors if there is no center mullion by sliding onto one door, closing the two, and then sliding the unit to the midway point to hold both doors in place.
The reflective External Notification Panel™ guides administrators and safety forces that the device is deployed. Once in place, the patent-pending Bearacade® can withstand 4,800 pounds of external force! That’s 10 times the strength of a traditional lock set. The award-winning design does not require any mounted hardware or changes to the door or door frame. The only Doorway Preparation is one pre-drilled 5/16″ anchor hole into your sub-flooring. See How Bearacade Works and Why for preparation details. (NOTE: Administration and safety forces are provided with a defaulting tool to gain access if needed.)
Lightweight, easy to store, and quick to deploy, Bearacade® is ideal for all interior doors that can be used as a safe haven when evacuation is not possible or too dangerous to attempt. Getting out and away is the first, best action. If you cannot get out, Bearacade® is an added option … an added layer of safety.
