Classroom Guardian Patented Classroom Guardian Door Barricade

The Classroom Guardian Door Security device helps keep students and teachers safe and helps keep intruders or active shooters out of the classroom.



  1. Instantly secures a classroom or office door during an active shooter or other lockdown scenario.

  2. Patented Drop and Lock technology does not require cotter pins or the insertion of any foreign objects to engage the device.

  3. Door frame to door frame engineering uses the strongest component of the door to secure the classroom.  Does not rely on door handles or hydraulic assists on your classroom doors.

  4. Fire code compliant because the device can be securely disengaged from the hallway by school personnel, first responders or police so they can safely enter a classroom in the event of a hostage situation.

  5. Mounts anywhere within the ADA (American Disabilities Act) compliant height range which is above 19” and below 44.5’ from the floor.  Devices that mount into your floor clearly violate this act and may also disturb asbestos during installation.
