Who We Are & What We Do

BarricAid Technology Group was created from an idea of utilizing technology to protect classrooms in the event of an active shooter. Co-Founders Roland Trout, Michael Pittman, and Neal Davis saw that school safety was designed around trying to prevent access to buildings. Yet, no one had created a solution if those security methods fail. The company’s patent pending ‘BarricAid System’ is in developmental phase and is expected to be in full scale manufacturing by the Summer 2021.
