Introducing the Barracuda™ Intruder Defense System

by SKHC Editor on March 18, 2015

The Barracuda™ Intruder Defense System is helping keep classrooms and public buildings safe in the event of an active shooter situation.  The Barracuda™ is a security device that can be installed in a matter of seconds in emergency situations to protect occupants against building intruders.

The Barracuda™ Intruder Defense System is available in three configurations to ensure a perfect fit for your door:

Barracuda™ Model DSI for Inward Swinging Doors
Barracuda™ Model DSO for Outward Swinging Doors
Barracuda™ Model DCS for Scissor Action Door Closers

The Barracuda™ Intruder Defense System was invented by Troy Lowe, a decorated military, who is currently a firefighter and SWAT team member in Ohio. As a SWAT team medic, he works to prevent these tragedies in his community through shooter response training programs.

To learn more about this security device please take a moment to watch a short demonstration video as well as a newscast on how Southwest Licking Schools have put the device to the Barracuda™ to use.

Thank you

In the case of an intruder, we have all our students and teachers lock themselves inside the classroom, lock the door and stay inside the classroom in silence. I am interested in knowing if the device that goes under the door is put in place by the teacher while she is inside the classroom? Is this used instead of locking the classroom door?

SKHC Editor January 19, 2017 at 5:06 pm

All of the Barracuda devices are meant to be used from the inside of the room. It should be possible to lock the door and then use the Barracuda for extra security.

If you have any other questions please feel free to call me at 866.558.0686 and I’d be happy to help.

Best,
Cole at School Kids Healthcare

We have a few outswing doors with a panic and no door handle or closer. How would your product work with these?

SKHC Editor January 23, 2017 at 12:37 pm

For out-swinging doors without a door handle, you would need to purchase a DGA-1 as well. This will screw into the door and act as a handle for the DSO-1 to be functional. You can find a picture of this at the link below.
