Allegion - Mission Partner

Allegion has been a mission partner of The "I Love U Guys" Foundation since 2023. We are partnered together due to our shared commitment to creating safer school environments.

At Allegion, their core value of "serve others, not ourselves" guides their approach to school security. They recognize that securing schools is a collective effort and are dedicated to being an integral part of your school's security team. With a focus on collaboration, they work with educators, law enforcement, non-profits, for-profit organizations, and security professionals to establish best practices.

Their security solutions are rooted in the recommendations of credible sources like the Department of Homeland Security, past-incident reports, and The Partner Alliance for Safer Schools. By incorporating these valuable insights, Allegion ensures their solutions meet the highest standards and effectively address the evolving challenges faced by educational institutions.


Allegion provides a wide range of electronic access control solutions designed specifically for schools, catering to their individual needs and budgets. Whether it's a fully integrated system that allows for one-button lockdown of the entire school building or local electronic solutions that automatically lock and unlock doors at specific times, Allegion offers options that ensure seamless access control.

When it comes to securing the perimeter doors of your school, Allegion offers a comprehensive range of solutions. By categorizing the doors based on their purpose, such as main entrance, secondary perimeter, or exit only, they can help you find the perfect combination of electronic and mechanical solutions. This approach ensures that only authorized visitors are granted access to the building, enhancing overall security measures.

In line with the guidelines set by Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) and insights from past incidents like Sandy Hook and Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Allegion offers a variety of classroom locking solutions. These locks allow for locking from inside the room, can be accessed from outside with a key or card, and meet fire and life safety codes. They provide a range of options that meet these requirements.

Allegion is dedicated to establishing and implementing best practices for various areas within schools. Whether it's assembly areas, high-security zones, stairwells, administration offices, or mechanical/maintenance areas, they offer a diverse range of solutions tailored to meet the unique security needs of each space.
