Safe Haven Solutions
“Shelter-in-Place” has become a commonplace term. Creating Safe Havens to shelter quickly, safely, and securely requires the correct door lock functions and a level of security to meet your particular facility’s needs. Securitech has been specializing in Safe Rooms and forced-entry resistance solutions for over forty years.
Securitech’s lockdown solutions offer the broadest selection of instant lockdown and safe haven products. Our solutions are code-compliant, time-tested, and can be tailored to meet exact requirements.
Our Safe Haven Product Line
Schools, retailers, religious institutions, offices, and many others have relied upon Securitech for the fastest ways to lockdown doors, or provide quick egress in emergencies. All Securitech Safe Haven products can include door position and bolt position signals to existing access control or security systems, as well as remote monitoring panels, allowing user-friendly answers to challenging security concerns.
Let’s start a conversation to provide you with mechanical or electric lockdown solutions that respond to the operational and security needs by individual room or location.
Lockdown vs Lockout
Securitech has led the way in allowing anyone within a space to quickly enact a lockdown with the single press of a red button or flip of a turnpiece. Entry is always possible by key. And with single motion exiting, no one is ever locked in. 100% code compliance and authorized entry is always possible.
In addition to the lockdown function, credentialed areas serving as Safe Havens which use access control (card, fob, etc.) entry for ordinary entry, can include a Lockout function; when the lockdown is enacted, credentials are not valid for entry. This function has been created to protect employees in the event that another credentialed employee is the active assailant. Cards and fobs are locked out, but the key can be used for emergency entry.
Quickly lockdown at the press of a red button. Designed to add on to existing cylindrical locks or mortise locks with sectional trim, SAFEBOLT is the most cost effective way to add lockdown capability to existing doors. Meets the Department of Homeland Security’s #1 recommendation to quickly lockdown.
QID is a full functioning mortise lock, with the ability to lockdown at the press of a red button. Security is enhanced with a 1″ stainless steel emergency deadbolt. Providing single-motion egress and key access, QID™ affords occupants time to focus on sheltering in place or evacuating.
Multi-door lockdown lock at the press of a button.
The LEXI™ Electric Lockdown offers enhanced safety and security in larger multi-door spaces. Exit devices can be unlocked for free entry while the space is being used, but a single press of a lockdown station instantly locks all the LEXI lever trims in case of emergency. The LEXI™ Lockdown is 100% code compliant and focuses on the life safety and security of the occupants inside the room.
Entry and exit safety.
Large spaces, such as cafeterias, auditoriums, gymnasiums, lecture halls and houses of worship typically have multiple entrance and exit doors. ACCED allows the primary entrance doors to function as push/pull doors with free-entry while the rooms are in use. The exit devices latches are held back until a single press of the lockdown station instantly releases the latches and locks the doors. Free exiting is always possible, and LEXI Lockdown can be used on existing exit devices in the same space.
Safety and Security in One Action.
Multi-Bolt can function as a single point lock during the day, yet a single flip of the turnpiece provides multi-point protection at the end of the day or lockdown at any time.
100% code compliant, Multi-Bolt retracts or locks all deadbolts simultaneously, providing latching and forced entry deadbolt protection. Fastening the door to the frame like a bank vault lock, the Multi-Bolt greater protection than a single latch or deadbolt.
Automatic Deadbolt Protection.
Providing multi-point deadbolt locking each and every time the door closes for maximum forced entry protection. Ideally suited for high-traffic doors, ABM offers a lockout option that prevents card access entry when enacted. This creates a Safe Haven which protects against entry by an active assailant who may be an employee.
