Rapid Access Safe Room System

Chemique’s strong bond proves a success by providing industrial strength adhesion for bulletproof safe room panels.

At Chemique Adhesives, we pride ourselves on providing tailored solutions that address specific requirements. KT Security Solutions have developed a new, innovative Rapid Access Safe Room system (RASR), as a direct response to the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

The system is designed to deploy in under 10 seconds and act as a ballistic shelter to protect people from an active shooter and other unexpected emergencies.

Chemique Adhesives worked with KT Security Solutions to find the perfect product within our solvent-free range of panel adhesives that offered the strongest bond between substrates.

We underwent a vigorous testing process to find the perfect product to successfully bond the bulletproof material with the other substrates. We successfully curated a bond that is strong enough to take the impact of multiple rounds of ammunition, now offering NIJ level III protection.

Chemique adhesives joined our customer at their media day where they unveiled their brand new rapid-deploy bulletproof safe rooms, recently installed in two special education classrooms in Cullman, Alabama.

The rapid deploy system is fully functional within 10 seconds, sheltering children and teachers from intruders and even severe weather. When not in use, it acts as a functional room or an interactive whiteboard to assist teachers within the classroom.

The advanced panel technology can protect against a bullet up to a .308, whilst being used as a whiteboard or calm room for students.

“Chemique Adhesives has been a fantastic asset to us throughout our product development. From prototype to final product, they have been a pillar of support. The team has been fundamental in directing us to the right formula adhesive from their range and has offered us continued technical insight and assistance in regard to the adhesive and its application methods.” – KT Security Solutions

It’s been a privilege to witness the development of the safe rooms; from its first conception and prototype to installation in only 8 months. We wish them all the success in the future. At Chemique we are proud to work with customers to provide products for such a diverse range of projects, especially one with such profound implications.
