NAPCO's LOCDOWN™ Locks Offer Schools Safer Alternatives

AMITYVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc., (NASDAQ: NSSC), one of the world's leading suppliers of high performance electronic security equipment for over 30 years, announced today that it believes many school classrooms need higher security locks to secure a classroom in the event of an emergency, based on increased orders for its LOCDOWN™ brand manufactured by its Marks USA division. The LOCDOWN family of products are cost effective, mechanical locks, that enable a teacher to lockdown a classroom from the inside, and may provide safer alternatives.

School security is a focus of news activity and increasingly drawing the attention of state and local legislatures around the country as lockdowns become a more frequent occurrence. As of this past Tuesday, school lockdowns had taken place in at least seven states across the country including Texas, Maryland, North Carolina, Georgia, Colorado, Kansas and Illinois.

State Senator Jeff Brandes of St. Petersburg, Florida, proposed legislation this week that would require schools to conduct lockdown drills to help prepare students and teachers for dangerous situations. NAPCO's Marks USA division has many products with the lockdown feature, and has been experiencing increased demand.

Richard Soloway, CEO of NAPCO Security Technologies recently commented on the lockdown product on the Company's quarterly earnings call, "Orders for our LOCDOWN classroom intruder lock increased at the end of the quarter, in response to the tragic events in Newtown, Connecticut. Our LOCDOWN product enables a school official to manually lock-down a door from the inside of a classroom or office. Interest has also been heightened for two of our Company's education, vertical market solutions, namely Continental Access Control's enterprise class, card-access systems and Alarm Lock's NETWORX™ wireless locking systems. Both systems offer schools the security capability of totally locking-down all access points to a building or campus, in minutes."
