Slide3

Video surveillance?

Doors lockable from within the classroom?

Doors remain locked 24X7?Locks controlled from a central location? Ability to barricade the door?

Hardened vision panels &

sidelites?Armed security personnel?

What makes a classroom “secure”?

Slide4

Accessibility (ADA compliance)

Building Codes

Fire CodesLife Safety Standards

But let’s not forget…

Slide5

How may we prevent or slow down an active shooter?

Can a criminal lock him or herself into a classroom?

Can police or other emergency responders gain access?Is free egress maintained?Is accessibility impaired?

Concerns:

Slide6

All locks or latches on egress doors must be operable with a single motion

No special knowledge, pinching, or twisting of the wrist required to operate

UL listing required for fire door hardwareOperable parts of hardware mounted 34-48” above floor

Basic Code Requirements:

Slide7

Egress doors must be unlatched by one releasing operation from the egress side.

One

operation must release all latches simultaneously – the model codes do not allow separate operations to release each individual security device.Hardware used to release the latch(es) must be mounted between 34 inches and 48 inches above the floor.

2018 Model Code Requirements:

Slide8

Operation

of the hardware for egress must be accomplished without tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist, and without the use of a key, tool, special knowledge, or effort.

Locked classroom doors must be able to be unlocked from the outside with a key or other approved means, to allow access for school staff and emergency responders (new requirement added to the 2018 model codes).

2018 Model Code Requirements:

Slide9

Door closers, panic hardware, and fire exit hardware may not be modified by retrofit locking devices, and modifications to fire door assemblies must be in accordance with NFPA 80 – Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives..

2018 Model Code Requirements:

Slide10

The facility’s emergency plan must address the locking and unlocking of classroom doors, and staff must be drilled in these operations.

NFPA

101 requires doors be lockable from within the classroom, without opening the door.2018 Model Code Requirements:

Slide11

Add complexity to an existing opening

Many are not ADA compliant, or violate other building & life safety codes

No UL listingInstallation or application invalidates fire door listing Impede free egressDelay or prevent access by police or other emergency responders

Provide criminals a means to lock themselves into the classroom

Barricade Devices:

Slide12

Hardware should:

Provide immediate single operation egress that does not require special knowledge or effort, key, or tool

Be lockable and unlockable from outside the classroomBe located between 34” and 48” above floorNot require tight grasping, twisting or pinching to operateBe easily lockable in case of emergency from within the classroom without opening the door or entering the hallway

Suggested d

oor security guidelines:

Slide13

Compliance with Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code

Classroom, lecture hall, teaching laboratory and laboratory corridor access doors

shall be equipped with locksets enabling occupants to readily secure door(s) from within the room. The basis of design for these locksets is Corbin/Russwin model ML2067, apartment function (deadbolt by key outside or by thumb turn inside, inside grip simultaneously retracts latch bolt and deadbolt permitting egress without unlocking door).For classrooms, lecture halls and assembly rooms requiring more than one exit, electronic locking shall be provided from (a) University-agreed switch location(s) within these spaces, including where occupancy loads or agreed design parameters require panic hardware.
