The RB School Door

Turning schools into safe rooms

With over 55 million children, not including educators, actively attending schools and universities in the U.S., creating a safe learning environment should be at the forefront. No child should have to consistently practice lockdown drills in the midst of their education, instilling a level of fear that interrupts the purpose of why they are there.  Our theory is to create “safe zones” within schools by turning classrooms into safe rooms with a retrofitted RB SCHOOL classroom door.  Our parallel objective is to convert the time it takes to conduct these lockdown drills into time spent reading and writing. We want to produce a safety school solution that is also compliant with fire codes, practical for children to operate, and affordable for all schools to obtain. 

We live in a complex world where we are unfortunately forced to worry about the safety of our children while they are in an environment where they should feel the most secure. The nation has witnessed a massive epidemic of guns on campus resulting in unimaginable tragedy throughout every level of education. The vulnerability our children and faculty are left with, no matter their age, race, religion, background, or whether they are part of a public or private school is unsettling; nobody should feel unsafe while teaching young minds or furthering their education.

There are more guns than citizens in the United States, and with the NRA proving to be unstoppable in their ways, it only makes sense to build a defense mechanism that can protect us from the dangers of this institution’s power. We are opening up the conversation and putting the spotlight on how many kids are affected by fear, anxiety, and trauma that ensues after a tragedy that takes place in an area where they are so supposed to feel most comfortable to be themselves. We are opening up a sector where we take into consideration the effects of running drills, pretending there is a shooter on campus, to instill fear and prepare children for the worst.

With this adversity, companies have been devising products to combat these alarming circumstances. Regrettably, the majority of the outputs either don’t work, are too expensive for schools to purchase, or don’t comply with the current school safety codes. As parents of grade school children and the U.S. partner of one of the world’s leading manufacturers of steel security doors based in Israel, we found this to be unacceptable and made it our mission to bring a reliable and affordable solution to the marketplace. With school shootings on the rise, we are left with no choice.

Established in 1973, RB Doors is synonymous with security in Israel. To create this life-changing armor, RB DOORS US Distributor, Omer Barnes, worked diligently with the top Executive Engineers in the Research and Development Department in Israel to produce the RB SCHOOL DOOR, a culmination of two prominent products from the RB arsenal. 

The RB SCHOOL DOOR offers bulletproof protection that is utilized by embassies worldwide and is installed in over 75 percent of households in Israel.

This unyielding material is combined with the UL certified fire rated door to provide maximum protection no matter the threat inclusive of door slabs with the same protection if an institution requires special accommodations. As members of the trade and parents of young children who are ten and eight years old, it is our responsibility to create a solution that will function within the parameters of existing school structures and comply with state code requirements to fit the needs of schools across the country.

Designed to keep an intruder out of the classroom no matter their attempts, the multi-point locking system assures a top-notch level of security all the while allowing easy egress from within the room.  We simplified the technology with the instincts of young children in mind, so if a life-threatening circumstance were to happen, a person, no matter their age, would be able to secure the RB SCHOOL DOOR without hesitation or error.

RB SCHOOL DOOR = Peace of Mind

This is more than just a bulletproof door; this is a way to keep our minds at ease along with the minds of our children and educators to ensure they are getting the maximum out of their experience within the school system.
