(New Braunfels, Texas)  Detex Corporation, recognized as an industry leader in the manufacture of high quality life safety and security hardware for commercial buildings, provides lockdown systems to protect educational facilities in crisis situations. The system delivers rapid control of entry doors and interior doors, so that intruders are denied access.

Detex Lockdown System components include durable Advantex® hardware with electric latch retraction or electric dogging, remote control switches (central or multiple), and power supplies. Auxiliary security equipment can include door prop alarms, vandal-resistant breakaway trims, door position switches, and the ProxiPen proximity-based system for guard tour verification.

Education facility managers can select the particular combination of components they require and know that they will integrate easily with each other and function well as a system.

"When students and staff are at risk, rapid response is essential,” said Detex Marketing Manager Ken Kuehler.  “Centralized control means that minutes required for manual lockdown can be shortened to seconds – a critical advantage in emergencies.
