Systel: Helping to Safeguard Your Students!

School safety doesn't just happen!

Did you know... From January to August 2018, there have been 235+ mass shootings in the United States according to Gun Violence Archive? In fact, the number of US students killed in school shootings so far this year is greater than the number of U.S. military personnel who have been killed in combat operations.

Systel in partnership with Konica Minolta is now offering two options - the Classroom Guardian and SchoolGate Guardian - that can help keep your children out of harm's way.

With the Classroom Guardian, teachers and school officials can effectively barricade a classroom in seconds with a universal device pre-adjusted to fit any door during installation. Features of the Classroom Guardian include:

1. Locking automatically into place and  not requiring manual insertion of pins or hardware.
2. Constructed of slotted steel uni-strut, providing strength, but light enough for even the smallest teacher to handle.
3. Installs anywhere on a door, ensuring ADA compliancy. 

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children Reports that nearly 1,000 child abductions occur every day. But, the SchoolGate Guardian can help prevent that and a myriad of other dangerous situations with its various components. Details of the SchoolGate Guardian include:
