West Liberty-Salem School District Selects Velo Privacy Screen to Enhance Door Security
The Air Louvers Brand of the Activar Construction Products Group Presents a Case Study
Following a 2017 shooting at the West Liberty-Salem High School in Ohio, the school district implemented a range of strategies to improve building security, from new entrance policies to upgraded hardware and door features.
One of the priorities for upgrading door security was to find a better way to block the line of sight from the corridor, through the vision lites in doors, and to allow the staff to move away from the door more quickly during a lockdown. They found that the pull-down Velo privacy screen from Activar Construction Products Group met all of those needs. The screens which block all light and vision, have been added to classroom doors and incorporated into the new lockdown procedure
