The Single Fold Shelter Shutter is made for narrow windows on doors. We supply both ready and custom made sizes. Shelter Shutters have an "adhesive" section that installs to the door surface and a "working" section that folds over the glass and seals tight using a magnetic or Velcro closure system. Magnets are embedded and we also send 1/2" Velcro circles that are easily added on installation. To operate simply grab near the "pull here" label and fold the shutter over. Teachers love them and you will too!
Most schools are using a fabric or paper roll up shade to cover door glass during a lock down. Although we may be having some fun with it in this video the fact is, roll up shades are not easy to roll up. The Shelter Shutters are pretty much effortless to operate. When a lock down drill ends door shades need to be opened for safety reasons and if the shades you use do not go back to the ready position easily and quickly a safety hazard will be created. Dozens of head injury incidents every year would increase to the hundreds every year.
"The shutters work perfect for the need"

"We have utilized the shutters during all of our lockdown drills. Love them.
Our teachers have expressed their gratitude as well. Congratulations on the patent. Well deserved. "

"Steve has developed a great product for covering door windows to eliminate visibility into a room when necessary to do so. The Shelter Shutter is inconspicuously mounted on the inside of the door and it is easily flipped over to conceal the entire glass area in the door, making it impossible to see inside the room.
I would recommend the Shelter Shutter for an effective, efficient and fast way to conceal visibility into an individual room or large common area."

Steve, "Just a quick follow up on the shelter shutters that were installed at Saint Catharine School in December of 2014. We run a minimum of three drills per month and they are as sturdy now as they were on installation day. A survey of the staff on the products ease and speed of operation received a 100% positive response. Most importantly, the shutters have shaved off valuable seconds to our lockdown procedure while providing a nice deterrent to any unwanted guest. I would like to thank you for providing a well thought out solution to our problem."
