Whether it’s a small facility or 400-room school, college dorm or office complex, NIGHTLOCK provides protection in just seconds for emergency lockdown situations. Teachers and employees simply drop the locking handle into the floor plate. Most lockdown policy procedures for classrooms include “barricading the classroom door,” with items such as desks or furniture. Most state Fire Officials approve devices like Nightlock Lockdown. Many fire code officials now apply a variance in codes to allow these temporary barricade devices for emergency events. The NIGHTLOCK® Lockdown uses the strength of the floor to withstand tremendous force, and works on any outward- and inward-swinging doors. The NIGHTLOCK unit is installed at floor level, and remains out of reach to anyone attempting to enter by breaking window glass on conventional classroom and office doors.
