Deploying The Sleeve

Does purchasing or storing The Sleeve violate fire code?

The sleeve is not a permanently mounted deadbolt, so the purchase or presence of The Sleeve is not a fire code violation. Deploying the device onto a door closer is a fire code violation, which is why it must only be deployed during life threatening active shooter/violent intruder situations.

Recommended Deployment Practices

  • The Sleeve can ONLY be used during active shooter situations, otherwise it is a violation of fire code.
  • The Sleeve should be secured and only accessible to trained and authorized individuals.
  • The Sleeve should never be used as a door locking device other than during an active shooter event.
  • The Sleeve should be removed from the door and secured as soon as the emergency event is over and an all clear order has been given, in accordance with emergency response procedures.
