How to Improve Facility Security with Security Latch

Security Latch: Door Security Bar

The ability to protect assets and lives, privacy and learning, makes security a priority for schools and facilities of all sizes. Your budget may not allow for expensive, advanced security devices, but you can still improve the security of your buildings and stay on budget.

Repairs and replacements due to theft and vandalism can be costly, however, there's a way to secure your facility without exceeding your budget. Security Latch door security bars will add an extra layer of security to facility doors, exit or interior, and is also an inexpensive and easy-to-use solution.


Maximize Security for Entrance Doors


Security Latch door security bars are constructed of mar-proof rubber-like PVC coated steel and have been created to eliminate the need to chain lock exits. The bars allow occupants inside the building to lockdown any exit and interior doors by simply placing the Security Latch bar between the door hardware and door frame.

Specifically designed to eliminate chain locking door exits, Security Latch bars are to be used in buildings that are unoccupied. Prevent unwanted entrance from the outside of your facility, while allowing occupants to exit from inside the building simply by lifting the door security bar.

Note: Please check with your local Fire Department before purchasing Security Latch, as some fire codes may prohibit use.
