School & University Security Closures and Barriers

Security Closures and Barriers for Schools & UniversitiesEducational institutions require the perfect combination of security and accessibility to create an environment that is both safe and conducive to learning. 

At all school levels, from elementary to university, administrators are tasked with safeguarding students, securing the campus and efficiently managing foot traffic. School officials turn to Dynamic Closures for security grilles and shutters because our solutions meet the diverse needs of their schools.

Closures used in academic settings must fit a wide range of openings, be low maintenance, easy to operate, accessible to all, and extremely durable. Thankfully, our product line checks all these boxes and more.

Dynamic Closures products are used in educational environments to:

  • Protect off-limits areas after hours
  • Create service windows in the dining hall or at a snack stand
  • Manage crowd control with a movable barrier
  • Restrict access in the cafeteria by separating the seating area from the kitchen
  • Secure counters in the library or the reception desk
  • Cordon off hallways or rooms to create flexible learning spaces
  • Meet safety and compliancy requirements 

To harmonize with the look and feel of a campus, our gates, grills, and doors come in a variety of materials, finishes, patterns and colors.

They’re also fully customizable. For example, does your school need to secure an irregular-sized space or an extra-high opening? Modifications are not a problem. Our in-house R&D team is ready to quickly accommodate your needs at our manufacturing facility.

Security Solutions for Educational Institutions

Side Folding Doors

Our side-folding doors are designed to secure virtually any space. Able to accommodate curved and L-shaped tracks, the configuration possibilities are endless. Choose an open grille for visibility, or ventilation or select opaque panes for full coverage. When not in use, our side-folding doors disappear into a small curtain pocket along one edge of the opening.
