One New Jersey school is preparing for the upcoming academic year by installing bulletproof doors on the classrooms. According to NJ.com, Harrington Park School District is having REMO Security Doors install the doors at their pre-K through 8th grade building and the founder of REMO, Omer Barnes, has two students attending the school.
Harrington Park bought over 50 of the $2,500 doors using money set aside for emergency preparedness. The doors are made of two 18-gauge galvanized steel sheets, reinforced with steel bars, have a polycarbonate window, and a 12-point locking system that reportedly jams if shot at.
Barnes told NJ.com,
“There are many products out there and many companies trying to make money off [people’s fears]. This wasn’t about trying to make money. It’s about trying to find a solution to keep my kids safe and everyone else.”
