Bullet-proof pop-out room piloted by Alabama elementary school

How to best protect children from active shooters in their classrooms in the United States has been a topic of fierce debate for decades, with few measures agreed upon by American lawmakers. 


One school in the U.S. state of Alabama is taking matters into their own hands by piloting the use of bullet-proof, pull-out rooms for their elementary students to shelter in if they are ever under attack.

KT Solutions says its Rapid Access Safe Room can be popped out in 10 seconds.

The room can withstand bullets from pistols, AR-15s, and AK-47s.

The Rapid Access Safe Room is being piloted at West Elementary School in Cullman, Alabama. 

The rooms retail for around $60,000 each.
