Plant owners and warehouse managers want to keep their facilities secure. Security requires a variety of systems, including keeping an eye on the premises’ interior and exterior.
One aspect of security is keeping track of traffic entering and leaving the grounds of the plant. Keeping track of the people coming onto the property helps increase workers’ safety and reduces the risk of theft or loss.
Posting security booths at strategic locations helps ensure the plant’s security. For the security guards’ safety and comfort, guard booths should be part of the security plan.
Guard houses and security shacks come in a variety of sizes. Facilities with large security forces benefit from larger shacks that have meeting rooms and restrooms included.
Prefabricated guard shacks can be delivered by truck and lifted onto the slab by a crane or fork truck. Once bolted to the slab, the prefab guard shack remains in place.
Guard shacks placed at entrances allow guards to regulate traffic flow on and off the premises and provide a shelter for guards within the facility.
Prefabricated guard shacks save design costs, and a variety of sizes are available. They can be delivered assembled or unassembled, and assembly is not complicated. These modular guard houses include lighting, electrical, and HVAC hook-ups pre-installed.
Other available options include a built-in forklift base, as well as steel deck floors. Spotlights, extra doors, intercoms, and other equipment can be installed, as well as gates. They generally have sliding windows and doors that can be manufactured as bullet-resistant.
Modular and prefabricated guard shacks are manufactured according to building codes.
Guard shacks don’t always need to house security guards. They can also serve as parking booths. They can be used for any purpose requiring shelter for a security guard or parking attendant who will be in one place for an extended time.
Because no design engineer or architect is needed, these structures’ costs are significantly lower than standard construction.
