Why Have a Strong Door Barricade?

While the engineering behind the Bolo Stick door barricade device can resist more than 4,200 pounds of force, it was created to prevent the unwanted room entry of Active Shooters into classrooms and offices. Bolo Stick door barricades are designed to provide an added layer of safety by creating another obstacle for a focused attacker to overcome. The time spent attempting to defeat the door barricade allows additional time for law enforcement response. Special Response Teams (SRT) were asked to use a battering ram, a halligan tool, and 12 gauge breaching rounds to gain room entry. After SEVERAL attempts and a great deal of time had elapsed, the door composition gave way.
