More particularly, LOCKAIDE is a sliding door anti latch device which allows rapid engagement or disengagement of the latch prevention mechanism.
LOCKAIDE is primarily intended to increase the security of classrooms, university lecture halls, government offices, and hospitals, but can be applied to many other situations as well. For example, classroom doors can be locked to prevent entry from the outside of the room, but must be easy to open from within. LOCKAIDE permits the door to be locked in advance, but prevents latching into the door jamb such that the door can easily be opened from either side. In the event of an emergency such as a school lockdown, the device can be quickly slid up or down with the actuator knob depending on which way the door swings to release the door latch, locking the door and preventing access from the outside of the room. The device does not interfere with egress from the occupied side of the room in compliance with fire code regulations. LOCKAIDE does not require alteration of existing door hardware and can easily be mounted to doors with metal or wooden door frames.
When an educational institution goes into a lockdown mode, the teacher has to locate the classroom door key and must open the door and step into the hallway in order to lock the door from the outside and possibly face the violent intruder. This places the classroom at risk and can take critical time away from other lockdown procedures, such as shutting off lights, pulling down window shades, and covering the door window. LOCKAIDE can allow a teacher or any occupant to lock the door instantly without the need to open the door, eliminating the time it takes to find the door key, open the door, lock the door from the outside, and step back into the classroom.
