Safety is one of the top priorities at Bnos Yisroel, a girls school in Baltimore Maryland with 500 students and 150 staff members. After conducting a comprehensive security audit, school administration discovered that the main entryway was the most vulnerable point.
Creating a secure entryway vestibule that would allow school administrators to both identify visitors and have an extra layer of security became the school’s top priority.
School officials decided that the best solution would be to add an entry vestibule sometimes called a sally-port. This controlled entryway would include two sets of locking doors. The next problem they faced was cost.

Installation is Fast and Easy, with Limited Interruption to Students and Staff
Bnos Yisroel needed the vestibule completely installed before the beginning of the school year, so workers were on a tight timeline. It wasn’t a problem for Porta-King. The entry vestibule came fully assembled and, within just a few minutes, it was placed, sealed, and bolted to the concrete.
