What can school campuses now purchase to help protect students and staff against gun shootings?
Answer: bulletproof whiteboard
Institutions now have an arsenal in their toolkits when it comes to campus safety.
In light of the Newtown, Conn., shooting, Maryland-based company Hardwire created a dual purpose whiteboard and clipboard that students and teachers can write on or use as a bulletproof barrier.
According to USA Today, the clipboard and whiteboard are made from mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicle technology and ultra-strong, polyethylene-based textile, which held up great during a ballistic test. The whiteboard is 18x20 inches and the clipboard is 10x13.
