Strike the Right Balance Between Classroom Security and Mobility

There are several possible safety scenarios that the chosen door hardware should be able to accommodate. Learn what they are and review the latest security hardware solutions.

Today’s school administrators and facility managers must provide more than just a space for student education; they must also provide a safe and secure learning environment. Any safety strategy should allow students and staff to move about freely, while keeping unauthorized individuals out.

Corbin Russwin from Craftmaster Hardware can help you strike the right balance between security and mobility.

Choosing the right locking solution begins with a thorough understanding of the needs of each school and each opening including Life safety codes, fire codes and ADA compliance.

As such, there are several possible safety scenarios that the chosen door hardware should be able to accommodate:

  • Door remains locked throughout the day
  • Door remains unlocked EXCEPT in an emergency situation
  • Door locks are controlled by a central location

Securing classrooms begins with Corbin Russwin mechanical Grade 1 mortise and cylindrical locks from Craftmaster Hardware. Each option offers functions and benefits that allow you to create exactly the security strategy you require for your doors at an affordable price.
