Bearacade® fits quickly and easily on any interior door to prevent opening in either direction. The unit features a reflective External Notification Panel™ on the outer facing portion to alert and guide administrators and authorities that the device has been deployed. The unit is designed for use outside of the K-12 educational environment and is part of the safety response protocol for county courthouses, medical facilities, individual offices, churches, and other institutions. Both create a short-term “safe room” in the event of a hostile intruder.
Once in place, the Bearacade can withstand more than 4,800 lbs. Lightweight, easy to store, and quick to deploy Bearacade® is ideal for classrooms, offices, doors without locks, many double doors, and other possible shelter-in-place locations within a building.
