Safe Lockdowns (formerly known as Global Innovations) products were created by Thomas Keuhn, inventor and longtime school administrator. Having in-depth knowledge of the school system and its safety concerns, he created products that made protecting teachers and students much easier.
Invented in 2006, Safe Lockdowns’ anti-latch device has been installed in schools thousands of schools in all 50 states, Canada and Mexico. Every component of our products is proudly made in the USA. The Safe Lockdown family of products saves precious seconds in times of crisis, and empowers everyone—employees, teachers, students, and more—to keep themselves and others safe. Our Anti-Latch Device ensures your teachers don’t have to worry about locking the door during a crisis. Instead of searching for their keys, teachers can simply pull a lever to latch the door from the inside. Operating the device is so easy even students can do it. The Double Door Anti-Latch Device operates in the same manner as its sister product, only for double doors. This device helps keep intruders from ever making it past the entrance. Our Security Film adds an extra layer of visual protection for teachers and students sheltered in place in the classroom. The film goes from see-through to a mirror-like finish when interior lights are off. So all an intruder will see is their own reflection.
