GovCon Capital, a Florida-based financial services company dedicated to funding middle-market companies operating in the aerospace and defense industry, entered an exclusive financial partnership with KT Security Solutions to finance rapid access safe room (RASR) systems.
KT Security Solutions, which designs and manufactures bullet resistant transitional housing for the military, began producing rapid access safety rooms for schools following the Uvalde, TX, school shooting. RASRs function as a retractable wall system that quickly converts the interior of a room into to a ballistic shield and emergency shelter for schools and other spaces. The RASR wall system is another layer of protection that can be deployed in K-12 schools, universities, banks, businesses, courthouses, government facilities, hospitals, places of worship and U.S. embassies.
“Our exclusive lending relationship with GovCon Capital allows KT Security Solutions to offer a cost-effective and customized leasing program for our RASR clients,” Kevin Thomas, president and CEO of KT Security Solutions, said. “As of today, every school district throughout the country will be able to install this life-saving technology for less than $3 a day per student”.
The RASR leasing program will allows state and local education districts to protect children and teachers during an active shooter situation with NIJ III level/UL VII level classroom enclosures.
“The threat of an active shooter situation is at the forefront of every parent’s mind as they send their kids back to school. GovCon Capital is prepared to allocate the necessary funds so that every student can have a RASR in their classroom,” Thomas Panuzio, managing partner at GovCon Capital, said.
