School in USA constructs bullet-proof rooms, will turn into shields in 10 seconds


Share post:

A sense of fear has gripped schools across the USA because of incidents of shooting. Amidst all this, schools are coming up with solutions in order to protect the students from the danger which emerges. An extraordinary step has been taken in this direction in Alabama. Two classrooms have been converted into bullet-proof rooms in the West Elementary School of Alabama’s Cullman, which has been named as the Rapid Deploy Safe Room System.

This has costed 60 thousand USD or around 50 lakh rupees to the school. This is the first time that in a school in the USA, safe rooms have been constructed. The specialty of this system is that with the security system, the classrooms have been turned into anti-ballistic whiteboard safe rooms. And this board can also turn into a bullet-proof fold-out mini-room. In normal scenarios, these boards will remain hidden from the walls, and will act as whiteboards.

But in the situation of bad weather or shooting, these boards can be pulled from the walls and in 10 seconds, the rooms will turn bullet-proof. As per reports, these safe rooms were designed by Security Solutions for the army. But in the last year, when 19 students and 2 teachers lost their lives in a shooting at the Rob Elementary School in Texas, the company started working on making bullet-proof safe rooms for the security of students and staffers in schools.

Kevin Thomas, Katy Security Founder and CEO, said that such bullet proof rooms will act as secure spaces for students and teachers.
