The company spoke to officials from local schools and businesses on Thursday on how to make their buildings safer, reports. It led tours of a mobile showroom filled with security products, such as brass keys, bulletproof doors and high-tech security systems.

“Our job is to slow the intruder down,” said Tony Denisco, principal of Denisco Kindler Group. “If we can do that, we can save some lives. If the right hardware is on the doors, it will slow people down.”

Denisco Kindler Group is a sales company that represents ASSA ABLOY.

The shooting at Umpqua Community College on Oct. 1 left nine dead and nine more wounded.

Denisco Kindler Group recommended schools at least have a patented key system that can’t be duplicated to secure the buildings, according to the report. The software can control when a key can work and who can enter the school.

The company also showed classroom doors that can lock from the inside or the outside to help teachers secure a classroom in the event of an emergency.
