There Are Better Options
Door hardware expert Lori Green over at iDigHardware.com recently published her thoughts on using a chair to bar classroom doors or using old firehose or belts to barricade doors in emergency lockdowns. She points out that as a community, we can do a better job of planning. We tend to agree with her. School systems, parents, and children desire a better solution to prevent further tragedies. DH Pace is here to help so students can focus on learning.
