Prefabricated guard booths are essential to the security of any military area. They should also be safe and comfortable for those operating it. As a result, they often need essential additions for the comfort, convenience, and safety of military personnel and supplies.
Most military guard shacks are operated 24/7. The need for the continual presence of personnel means that adding a restroom is essential. Adding a restroom to a prefabricated guard shack means that guards don’t have to leave their station or use a portable toilet.
Wall & Roof Designs
Many military guard shacks are placed near historical sites that require all buildings to meet that aesthetic. Porta-King offers many different design options to match your aesthetic needs. Historical sites should make guest feel as if they are in the past. Matching the look and feel of the site will not interrupt gust immersion. Aesthetic additions can include:
Functional & Flexible Electrical Design
To maintain the security of an area, it’s important that all equipment is properly supported with a clean and sufficient supply of electricity. Electrical wiring can be accommodated with either surface mounted conduits or raceways built into the wall, floor and ceiling of the structure to conceal and protect the wiring. It’s also important that the design for the electrical requirements include:
- Sufficient capacity to facilitate the addition of new equipment
- The possibility of moving existing equipment to address new security requirements
Exposed wiring for equipment is not only unsightly, but inconvenient and potentially dangerous. A properly installed raceway will reduce the risk of:
- Electrical shock
- Fire hazards
Security Equipment Layouts
Due to their size, there is limited space in prefabricated guard shacks. Optimize the space available for extra security equipment by customizing the layout of your security equipment.
Storage cabinets for your military guard shack can help reduce clutter, decrease the risk of theft, and keep everything organized. Prefabricated guard shacks can come equipped with strong storage cabinets that lock and store essential equipment out of sight.
