SHIELD™ Lockdown System is a trusted school lockdown system that heightens the safety of students and staff during various threats to your campus. Our system has been crafted through diligent research of past tragedies in U.S. schools and careful collaboration with Law Enforcement Agencies. This process has resulted in the development of a one-of-a-kind patented lockdown system to mitigate against threats to our nation’s educational establishments.
Step 1 - Threat is Identiﬁed on Campus
Step 2 - Faculty/Staff Activates SHIELD™ Lockdown System
Step 3 - SHIELD™ Lockdown System Saves Lives
SHIELD™ Lockdown System's creators understand the importance of a rapid response when a life-threatening scenario occurs on your campus. With
With the push of 1 button, the patented SHIELD™ Lockdown System:
Compartmentalizes the school by automatically closing and locking exterior and interior doors throughout the school
Directly notiﬁes ﬁrst responders via their radios while simultaneously notifying 9-1-1, greatly improving response time
Sounds alarms and strobes alerting staff and students to take action
After the Sandy Hook tragedy, a local Sheriff asked our founders if there was anything that could be done to protect a school in his jurisdiction from a similar tragedy.
After deep analysis of how to mitigate a threat on a school campus, the SHIELD™ team determined that you not only need to lock the exterior, but also segment the building to restrict movement inside as well as reduce response time of local authorities. The SHIELD™ Internal Access Control and SHIELD™ Direct Communication to outside agencies are patented features unique to only SHIELD™ Lockdown System.
Unlike other systems, SHIELD™ was designed as a virtually invisible, daily-use product, to protect lives daily without changing the functionality or appearance of your facility. SHIELD™ is the ONLY system approved by the Georgia State Fire Marshall and written speciﬁ cally into the State Fire Code.
“I believe that every minute and second saved by performing a quarantine of an active shooter and automatically notifying emergency personnel can save lives in school shootings and other similar settings. While it appears that many types of security systems have been developed since 2000 along with the documented rise of mass shootings, none of these security systems, to my knowledge, are capable of automatically quarantining an active shooter, providing a form of deterrent to the active shooter, and automatically notifying emergency personnel.”
