This unique, patented safety system incorporates the ASTM certified door of the client's choice in a frame that allows a trained officer access within fifteen seconds.

The unit incorporates approved security locks and hinges as favored by the client and architect. The door is of hollow metal construction, but a hardwood door can be used for use in a government or corporate environment. The unit can incorporate electronic locks.

No More Riots, No More Hostages

The Quick Release Security Door cannot be barricaded. In the event of materials or other obstructions being placed against the door it can still be accessed in seconds. This is also applicable if the the lock is jammed or immobilized. This property makes it ideal for use in jails, corrections, law enforcement, psychiatric hospitals, government buildings, embassies and office complexes. Executives and government personnel cannot be entombed or held hostage behind the door.

Emergency Response Teams (ERTs) can access an area faster, safer and without force. Oxyacetylene or power tools are not required. No-go areas are consigned to history with the use of the "Smart Door".

  Quality Construction Greater Officer safety

This unique innovation is constructed, where applicable, to the ANSI NAAMM specifications.

The door is of hollow metal construction with approved thermal and acoustic insulation. The hardware is of high tensile steels.

If an inmate immobilises a cell door lock, or if the door is barricaded, it usually takes valuable time for the authorities to gain access. When prison officers or other government personnel (or inmates) are in life-threatening situations, time is of the essence.

The Barenco Quick Release SAFETY-SECURITY Door can be activated in just 15 seconds.
