Babylon Locksmiths, Suffolk County, NY-based provider of security technology and locksmith services to the Babylon community and entire Suffolk County region, is proud of recent work done to help a local school district continue ongoing security upgrades for their various schools.

More and more the daily news features stories of violent attacks being carried out against children in the places they go to learn and grow. Regardless of if it is a college campus in West Virginia, a high school in Canada or the tragic events that occurred in December 2012 in Sandy Hook, the unpredictable acts of violence do not seem to be stopping. In response to this, school districts and the communities they serve are taking steps to protect our children when they are continuing their educations. One of these, a Babylon school district, recently worked with Babylon Locksmiths to install new door lock technology that allows teachers to secure classrooms from the inside during possible violent attacks.

According to the technicians at Babylon Locksmiths, the intruder locks that they installed are the right level of security for the needs of the schools. The ‘Classroom Intruder’ locks/door handle combinations use a key to lock and unlock the door from the outside for opening or closing the classroom during regular situations. In an emergency situation, the teacher can use their key to lock the outside lever from inside the classroom, preventing unauthorized entry. Additionally, because locking the door from the inside requires a key, it prevents the students from accidentally locking the teacher out of the classroom. When the outside lever is locked from use, the inside lever is always free for emergency egress in the event that quick evacuation is necessary.

The team at Babylon Locksmiths takes a great deal of pride in all of the work they do but in situations like this they take a great deal of satisfaction in helping to protect the community’s children. As one of the technicians who assisted in the installation of the locks stated, “Our children are innocent and should not be the targets of attack so we made sure that the equipment we installed was the best available to offer the kids optimal protection.”
