Bulletproof Doors Installed In New Jersey Classrooms
In the wake of multiple mass shootings across America, New Jersey schools are taking a step towards protecting schools by installing bulletproof doors on their classrooms.
“I took it more of a personal thing to, you know, find a solution,” said Omer Barnes, CEO of Remo Security Doors.
As per PIX 11, the 150-pound steel doors are manufactured in Israel. Harrington Park, N.J. has put money in for over 50-doors.
“God forbid, a shooting event,” he said, “someone tries to break the glass to unlock the door, it’s impossible. You cannot do it.”
Once the lock on the door is activated, 2 steel bars are engaged. Bullet-resistant glass and steel will stop outside threats. Each door costs $2500.
Bnos Menachem located on East New York Avenue received funding from homeland security.
“It becomes a point, as a school leader that we have to make sure our facilities are as safe as they can be,” said Harrington Park Superintendent Adam Fried.
Schools in the area are looking for preventative measures as opposed to installing armed security guards.
“We’re starting to add more militarization into our schools and at the end of the day, schools are for learning,” adds Fried, who thinks that guns should not be in schools.
