SHANGHAI, CHINA (Mar. 18, 2015) – Allegion plc (NYSE: ALLE), a leading global provider of security products and solutions, has completed the Safe Campus Construction demo project at Jinshan School District, Shanghai. Allegion referenced success cases from different vertical markets – such as education, hospital, airport, metro, hospitality, commercial and residential fields – and rich international experience in safe campus construction as models for the project.
Allegion believes the safety of primary and middle school students is of the utmost importance. That’s why, after a safety audit was conducted and found a need, the company sponsored mechanical locks, exit devices, door closers and other door accessories to both Zhu Hang Primary School and Zhu Hang Middle School.
"Allegion will use this successful demo project as a good example at a series of activities on campus facilities renovation and safety and security education,” William Yu, senior vice president and president of Asia Pacific, said. “We also plan to extend these activities to other schools in Shanghai, and even the whole country, in order to decrease the occurrence of safety accidents on campus and assist Safe Campus Construction. Teenagers, who are the future and hope for our country, not only need safe campuses, but also need safe living, safe travelling and even safe working environments. With diversified experience and an international view on different vertical markets, Allegion will promote safety and security awareness and, further, advocate to raise the safety and security standards to boost the rapid development of China.”
This successful demo project not only encourages the expansion of the Safe Campus Construction project to other districts of Shanghai and China as a whole, but also encourages safety and security awareness and heightened standards in the community.
