Adding bulletproof classroom doors to schools has been an increasing trend in recent years. To empower districts interested in adding an additional layer of security at the classroom level to their buildings, we outlined several of the most frequently asked questions we get when designing, fabricating, and installing bulletproof classroom doors.
What Levels of Protection Do You Offer for Bulletproof Classroom Doors?
Our bulletproof doors are available in UL Levels 1 through 8. Most schools choose Level 3 or Level 5 doors. These levels can stop bullets from common handguns and rifles.
Can You Install Your Bulletproof Classroom Doors?
Yes! TSS’ specialized installation team can handle installation jobs all over the country.
We work closely with administration to schedule installation around school activities. Summer is usually the ideal time to install bulletproof classroom doors. When schools need to install bulletproof classroom doors and can’t wait for the summer break, our team can also complete installation in evening and overnight hours.
Do You Offer Design Assistance?
Yes, TSS offers bulletproof classroom door design assistance. Our team of ballistics experts are ready to help you determine your threat level and an appropriate ballistic barrier solution, including design.
Many schools want their bulletproof classroom doors to look exactly like the original, non-bulletproof doors that they’re replacing. TSS specializes in creating replica bulletproof doors that are nearly indistinguishable from the originals. Not only does this add a layer of security to the classroom, it preserves the aesthetics of a learning environment.
Can TSS Provide Budget Numbers for Bulletproof Classroom Doors?
There should never be any surprises when it comes to budgets—especially for schools. We can provide your team with accurate budget numbers so you can plan your bulletproof classroom doors project with confidence.
Can Meet With Us To Review the Bulletproof Classroom Doors Project?
Yes! TSS customers have their own project team to ensure everything is on track, on time, and on budget. You’ll have your own project manager who will handle all aspects of the project and be your direct line of communication with our team.
Over the years, we’ve developed a Proven Process to make sure every project goes right the first time, every time. Your project will never progress to the next step without your approval. And if anything needs to change, pivot, or be reworked, we go back to the drawing board to make sure everything is exactly right.
