Door Barricade Device
The Door Barricade is designed to secure your door in classrooms, offices, and safe rooms during emergency lockdown or active shooter events, allowing you to “shelter in place” safely. It is suitable for both inward and outward-swinging doors and meets code compliance standards, including UL10C certification. By anchoring securely to the floor, it utilizes the floor’s strength to provide maximum protection. It can be installed on both left and right-hand opening doors, whether they are made of solid wood or metal.
The Lockdown 1 package includes all the necessary components: easy-to-follow instructions, a wall-mount storage box for the locking handle, a door plate, a floor plate, a red locking handle, architect bolts, Phillips head screws, and blue plastic cement anchors.
Installation instructions will be provided upon purchase of the product.

NOTE: Installing this product will require installing either a 1/8th inch plate or for a more robust installation a 3/8th inch floor plate in the floor as well as drilling a 1/2 inch deep hole with a 1-1/4″ diamond grit hole saw.
The low-profile floor plate measures 1/8″ in thickness and is transparent. To install it, a center hole of approximately 1/2″ depth needs to be drilled. You can use a 1-1/4″ diamond grit hole saw or a similar drill bit
This item can be a very effective door reinforcement device however it has been noted by fire departments that 20 to 25% of the locking handles go missing. If you can ensure that the locking handle will be available when you need it most then this product can do the job you need it to.
