Large manufacturing facilities often suffer from having too much open space. Such large spaces can make for cavernous work environments that are not conducive to getting work done. Modular wall partitions can be used to help tune out distractions and make for a dedicated workspace inside even the largest of factories.
No matter what size facility you have, Porta-King offers modular wall partitions in any dimension to fit the needs of a particular space. These walls can be easily and quickly installed, resulting in little downtime, no cleanup and minimal disruption to daily work. This also means significant cost savings, as opposed to the mess, hassle and expense of traditional construction.
Another major benefit to modular wall partitions is that they can be easily redesigned and reconfigured depending on particular needs. While permanent walls will force a space to remain configured in one particular pattern, walls from Porta-King can be easily moved to adapt to whatever needs may arise. In fact, should these walls need to be redesigned, Porta-King can come and redesign them even if no additional materials are required. Many former clients have needed to rearrange these walls and were able to do so with little to no hassle.
The solid insulating core of our wall systems creates a highly impact resistant surface. Especially when compared to conventional drywall construction utilizing either a hollow cavity or one with blanket type insulation. Flexibility allows moving or modification with a 100% recapture of original material purchase. All of our modular wall partitions offer great sound attenuating qualities, as well. Special panel compositions are available for especially noisy environments.
With over 100 years in the modular building business, Porta-King has the experience and knowledge to handle all design requirements. No matter the location or complexity of the project, Porta-King can assemble these walls to the exact specifications of a given space. Whether it is the standard size or the extra tall wall design, Porta-King will make sure these walls fit perfectly in any space.

Porta-King’s pre-engineered, structural steel mezzanines are an easy, efficient and affordable way to add new floor space at a fraction of the cost of new construction. Our unique prefabricated component design allows you to easily assemble these structures onto the existing concrete floor of your factory, warehouse or where ever you need to add new space. The concept is simply to utilize the unused ceiling space that most facilities have but don’t use. All of our mezzanines are custom designed to the dimensional requirements you provide.
This photo is a good example of how the concept works. This newly constructed mezzanine is 19′ wide x 29′ long and 12′ high. The site for construction is the shipping & maintenance area of a community college in Iowa. The space was needed for storage of miscellaneous school products.
The mezzanine was installed quickly and is designed with tab extensions on one end to allow for future growth of the mezzanine. A 250 pound per square foot (PSF) load rating allows for heavy product storage. The finished floor consists of a 20 gauge metal deck covered with layer of oriented strand board (OSB). Full perimeter guard rail is included for safety along with a swing gates for easy access to the mezzanine deck.

As the anti-smoking laws have become increasingly prevalent in cities across America, accommodations need to be made for those who continue to smoke. Porta-King offers a practical solution in the form of customizable smoking shelters. We have a wide array of paint colors to match your existing building and won’t detract from the aesthetics. These welded steel buildings combine durability and protection, in a variety of designs and configurations. Our standard shelters come with clear tempered safety glass and anodized aluminum framing for longevity.
These shelters will ship to your site fully assembled and require no additional setup, eliminating the hassle of new construction. At Porta-King, we feel there’s no reason these structures can’t be comfortable as well as functional. Most of our shelters are built with open doorways to allow for continuous air movement. Optional features include tinted glass, heating & cooling, lighting and exhaust fans. And these are only a few of the many upgrades we have available to make your smoking shelter as inviting and comfortable as possible.
There are plenty of other benefits to smoking shelters as well. We understand that business owners certainly do not want to alienate their customers who smoke. These shelters offer a way to comply with state laws as well as accommodate your patrons or clients who are inclined to smoke. When this type of ban prohibits smoking indoors, these shelters offer smokers protection from inclement weather such as rain or snow. In addition, these prefabricated buildings are a cost-effective alternative to on-site construction.
Don’t let the ban on smoking inconvenience your customers or your employees. Invest in a convenient, durable and relaxing smoking shelter that will comply with the laws and accommodate the smokers at your place of business. Porta-King offers free on-site design assistance and turnkey installation services.

Our modular partition walls are available in a variety of construction compositions to address a wide range of application requirements. With our 3” Versa-King wall system we can create partition walls suitable for a variety of different types of project. Applications range from subdividing existing office space to demising walls that create separate manufacturing environments.
We also have a system we call Monolith that is primarily used for the latter of these two applications. With Monolith we can create a modular wall system up to 40’ tall. Check out these photos of an ongoing installation taking place at a heavy manufacturing plant in the southeast. The single span construction of our monolith panel makes them much easier to install that our competitors stacked panel design.
In addition to our Versa-King and Monolith modular partition systems we also manufacturer two different thin profile modular walls that are perfect for open space and floor to ceiling applications. These systems help maximize space utilization while providing the same or better performance than a conventionally built stud wall.
We understand the importance of having key staff members on-site at manufacturing operations. Moving these employees closer to the assembly floor can not only cut costs but also increase interaction and boost communication, resulting in higher profitability.
Inplant offices offer the opportunity to utilize your current space and quickly add an office within the existing building. All of our units include prefabricated components that assembly easily into a complete structure. All of these components ship pre-cut and ready for immediate use so there is no on-site fabrication and all materials are reusable. The hassles associated with new construction, including but not limited to coordinating different trades, delays and disruption to daily work routines along with the dust and debris associated with conventional construction, make our flexible and easy to install modular inplant offices the smart solution when there is a need for additional space.
The flexible design allows for easy moving and modification with 100% recapture of initial material investment. These units can be single story or stacked to create a two or three story inplant office complex. We recognize the need for uniformity but we also understand that some client needs may be unique. That’s why each unit is custom designed to meet project requirements.
The durable construction holds up in even the harshest plant environments. But these units are also attractive and contemporary with pre-finished panel surfaces that are easy to clean and maintain. Porta-King offers seven standard panel colors along with color match options where posts and framing blend seamlessly with white, beige or gray panel finishes. The solid, insulated wall construction offers great insulation and is more impact resistant than open cavity walls used for stick and drywall construction.
You can view photos of our products in the inplant office photo gallery. If after browsing, you don’t see a structure to suit your needs, let us know. We would be happy to custom design a unit to meet your requirements. Porta-King also offers design assistance on-site and turnkey installation services through our nationwide network of representatives.
When you’re looking to safeguard and protect your equipment from weather, theft and even regular wear and tear, invest in a durable equipment shelter from Porta-King. Our products are delivered onsite, preassembled and ready for installation.
Maybe one of the most important functions of an equipment shelter is safety. Vandalism is a very real threat and it’s crucial to have a sound structure to house your expensive and valuable equipment for years to come. Our durable steel framework with industrial grade acrylic enamel ensures the longevity of each product.
Not all equipment shelters are created equal. At Porta-King we understand that different clients have different needs and there’s not a ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to these shelters. For example, some clients may prefer an open structure design where doorways and the lower 20% of the walls are left open for quick and easy access along with cross ventilation. If security or weather is a concern, a client may choose a fully enclosed design for added protection. The point is, no matter what your specifications or requirements, Porta-King can design a structure that’s both safe and flexible to fit your needs.
There’s more to an equipment shelter than you may think. For added convenience, there are a variety of upgrades and accessories that can be included to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of the structure. We can add lighting and electrical systems (including explosion proof rated components), heating and air conditioning, ventilation systems and custom cabinetry. Ballistic rated construction is also available for applications in high-risk environments. We also can provide a long list of custom exterior finishes, which include custom paint applications, aggregate, brick veneers and many more.

With these and all of our products, Porta-King is committed to customer satisfaction and ensuring that our product matches your specifications and meets all of your needs.
We received a call yesterday from our friends at Barrick Gold Corporation. They have been a great customer for us having purchased multiple prefabricated building for use as control rooms at the mines they operate throughout the western U.S.. The e-mail we received indicated that they wanted to purchase another one of those “lovely” shacks from us. Although we rarely have anyone refer to our prefabricated buildings as “lovely” when you look at this photo you will see why. As you can imagine the grounds of a mining operation are a place where strict adherence to safety is critical. As part of their focus on safety Barrick requires us to paint these shacks some rather unusual colors. They do this to make these buildings highly visible. As they have explained to us, “with 400 ton trucks and other heavy equipment roaming all around our mines we need these buildings to stand out as much as possible.”
As one of the world’s largest gold produces, Barrick’s mining operations are truly amazing places. Click here to see some photos of their very sophisticated and efficient mining operations.

We were presented with a unique product application last week. A contractor that completes repair and maintenance on ships at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard contacted us because they needed to create immediate shelter for a new time clock they were installing. This time clock was being installed for employees to use as they entered and exited the work site. Prior to the introduction of these time clocks, employees were allowed to enter and exit the area without any official documentation. Our representative, Brian Sandusky, explained that this company was part of a large contingent of other companies doing maintenance on two military ships that were dry docked at the port. Because they were working in a large open area of the shipyard there was no good way for them to account for their personnel as the entered and existed the site. To create the enclosures we supplied a Duraluminum prefabricated buildings. The only way the employees can now enter or exit the work area is by entering into one of these prefabricated buildings and punching in or out via one of these time clocks. Now the management team has a cost effective, easy to monitor program for keeping track of who is working at this site. The new system has worked so well for them they have purchased a total of four buildings for this same application. After visiting the site Brian commented on what an unbelievably impressive site it was seeing these mammoth ships actually sitting out of the water. The navy bring these ships in to do retrofits and other scheduled maintenance.
