Aeroturn Promotes School Safety in Partnership With True Security Design
The turnstile manufacturer offers new school guard glass and joins with security assessment experts to better protect children and faculty.
OXFORD, Conn. — Aeroturn, a turnstile manufacturer based here, announces the company is on a mission to help schools throughout the nation improve physical security.
The company says it has dedicated its efforts to delivering cutting-edge, highly secure turnstile solutions over the years and continues to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to school security by offering turnstiles that can accommodate forced entry resistant glass — school guard glass.
The term “school guard glass” will become very familiar over the next few years as more and more schools implement forced entry resistant glass at entry points with the intention of protecting and saving lives, according to the company.
Aeroturn’s single and dual portal mantrap turnstile can be used at critical checkpoints that can handle a full height school guard glass set of moving panels, which is an important factor for schools.
Only moving panels with a compound motion will keep the leading edge of the barrier midway along the passageway while storing the panels parallel to the passageway, the company says. This functionality provides the safest and widest passageways (up to 42-inches clear) and offers ADA compatibility, particularly with service dogs and wheelchair footrests in bi-directional traffic.
Aeroturn has joined forces with True Security Design, a Long Island-based security consulting firm which will help evaluate vulnerabilities and security threats in a customer’s existing facilities, including schools and business workplaces.
Joseph Pangaro, president of True Security Design, will be assessing how well an existing security system can deter, detect, delay and respond to security threats, identify all vulnerabilities and provide actionable recommendations to mitigate future risk.
“Aeroturn is always experimenting with ways to make our turnstiles unique and better able to protect our children and faculty across the country,” states Michael Stoll, vice president, technical sales & marketing. “We are happy to team up with True Security Design and offer not only unique turnstile solutions to our customers; but a true team of security experts.”
