Custom security structures are fabricated up to UL 752 Level 8 and NIJ-IV
In response to the growing need for security at military bases, dams, ports of entry, nuclear facilities, city buildings and law enforcement agencies, St. Louis-based Porta-King has designed prefabricated structures with bullet resistant protective materials. The prefabricated structures include walls, windows and doors constructed with bullet resistant materials which meet the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) 752 Level 8 ballistic standard and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) IV ballistic standard.
“We are seeing an increasing need for security structures in new places such as distribution centers, wastewater treatment facilities and food manufacturing and processing plants,” said Gregg Pearlstone, Porta-King vice president. “We are committed to providing the highest quality products, and by offering ballistic-rated structures, we can provide options for many organizations to protect personnel in various locations.”
Porta-King, a leader in custom-designed prefabricated construction, offers prefabricated bullet resistant construction in both aluminum and steel models. Note: The bullet resistant construction is limited to UL 752 Level 3 for our anodized aluminum constructed buildings. Our Durasteel, all steel, line of prefabricated buildings is available in bullet resistant construction up to and including NIJ level IV. The structures can be custom-made to meet clients’ needs, and can include many aesthetic options such as pitched standing seam roofs, extended overhangs with can lights, factory-adhered brick and stone finishes, decorative steel facades and window mullions. Also available are custom color options and trailer mounted units for use as mobile security booths.
The company is also a single-source manufacturer of galvanized structural steel platforms and towers, which can be used in conjunction with its ballistic-rated buildings as vision towers and overwatch towers commonly used to monitor prison grounds, fighter pilot training courses and firing ranges.
Porta-King is committed to providing unmatched quality and service, and provides each client with detailed drawings for approval and on-site review prior to fabrication. Design consultation and installation services are available anywhere in the United States, along with the best warranties in the industry on all their products.
