NEW HAVEN, Connecticut, July 12, 2018 — Security professionals working to provide the appropriate level of security and safety at our nation’s schools need not just the right training but also the correct products. To provide the most robust product offerings for schools, ASSA ABLOY has partnered with School Guard Glass™ to develop complete attack-resistant door openings that comply with the 5-aa10 test standards recommended by the FBI’s Active Shooter Report.
The openings will be on display at the ASSA ABLOY booth (#611) at ALOA 2018.
These Attack-Resistant Openings are economically designed using hollow metal door and frame construction with accompanying ASSA ABLOY hardware. This ensures maximum security without sacrificing usability or aesthetics. Further, the solution ensures you never sacrifice fire and life safety as a result of implementing dangerous secondary locking devices.
The Attack Resistant Openings are rigorously tested to ensure they can withstand an intense four-minute physical attack with the use of hand tools and after being shot 60 times with 7.62 NATO rounds. While the door or glass may not stop a bullet from penetrating the opening, the attack-resistant door assembly will remain intact so as to prevent an attacker from breaching the opening.
“Protecting the students, faculty and staff in our communities across the country is a core commitment we at ASSA ABLOY share with all schools,” said Ron Baer, Director of Business Development - K-12 at ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. “Deploying an opening that can withstand and repel a physical assault is a simple, affordable solution that makes schools safer from the moment they are installed.”
