CARMEL, IND. (Jan. 20, 2017) – Allegion, a leading global security products and solutions provider, recently received New Product Awards by both School Planning & Management and College Planning & Management magazines. The Dogging Security Indicator from Von Duprin® , a top Allegion brand, was awarded the highest honors by a panel of judges for criteria including features, innovation, quality, durability and, most importantly, the impact on learning that the product provides.
Responding to a need for lockdown solutions in assembly and large gathering areas, Von Duprin developed the Dogging Security Indicator. It provides at-a-glance verification of the status of the panic device from inside a room. “Lock” is visible when the door is undogged, and “unlock” is visible when the door is dogged.
“These awards further demonstrate Von Duprin’s commitment to safety and security for the K- 12 sector,” said Yong Lacy, Von Duprin business leader at Allegion. “Securing high occupancy areas quickly in the event of an emergency is more efficient with the Dogging Indicator. Authorized personnel can lock the door from inside a room without needing to open the door.
” The Dogging Security Indicator is currently available on new products or as a retrofit kit for existing Von Duprin devices. Designed for high-use and abuse environments — such as school auditoriums, cafeterias and gymnasiums — the security indicators are recommended for the following applications:
Lockdown: In critical situations, the indicator can be seen as secure from a safe distance.
Visual Verification: Reduces the time it takes to tour your facility and ensure each door is secure.
Additional markets like healthcare and higher education will benefit from the Von Duprin Dogging Indicator.
