Security Booths

Maintaining security at your facility while providing guards with a protection is best achieved with a security booth. Prefabricated guard houses and security booths keep personnel safe and happy at their posts.

Keep Personnel Safe With Prefabricated Security Booths

Guards have to be kept safe if they can be expected to keep your facility and others safe. Porta-King’s prefabricated security booths can be equipped with multiple construction and security options to ensure your personnel can do their job properly under any circumstance, including:

  • High Security Locks or other access control devices, for doors to address trouble-free and secure operation.
  • Roll Down Shutters to protect the content of your building from theft or vandalism.
  • Exterior Lighting to illuminate area outside to allow users a clearer view to monitor surrounding area.
  • Ballistic rated materials, Depending on the threat level, our ballistic-rated guard buildings are available with U.L. 752 Levels 1 – 8 or NIJ Levels I – IV. Ballistic rated walls are from grade to roof line and consist a solid sheet of steel void of any seams to eliminate any zones of weakness. Visit our ballistic-rated guard booth page to learn more.

Employee Satisfaction

There’s nothing worse than employees who slack or even quit their job due to poor working conditions. That’s why we design our security booths to be both practical and comfortable to accommodate those long shifts. In addition, a security booth’s isolation requires a self-sustaining design. Porta-King’s experienced engineers will work with your team to build the right security building for your facility. Common choices include:

  • Building sizes are customizable – Extra-large options are available to facilitate one or more guards comfortably for extended periods of time.
  • Customized layouts – We will work with you to design and build a security booth that will meet the functional demands of the application. 
  • Climate control – Climate control is important for security booths that will be occupied year-round. H.V.A.C. units are sized appropriately for the space and the security booth they will be installed in to ensure the units operate efficiently and the security booth maintains the desired temperature. 
  • Factory plumbed restrooms, and interior finish options  – make your building as self-sufficient as possible.

Flexible Security Booth Design Adapts to Any Environment

As a custom fabricator, we have a wide range of designs that include unique features to personalize each structure. Enhance your security booth’s appearance with:

  • Custom wall and roof configurations
  • Factory-installed brick
  • Standing seam roofs, and more.

On site off-loading and installation of a Porta-King Building Systems’ prefabricated Durasteel Guard Building. This Porta-King prefabricated building features custom exterior wall panels and an integral, factory plumbed restroom. The building arrived at the job site on a flat bed truck as a completely fabricated, pre-wired and plumbed unit. The off-loading and installation was accomplished in a matter of a few hours and was lifted from overhead using the crane and optional roof mounted lifting lugs.

We take you on a tour of this new Durasteel security booth installed inside the entrance of a multilevel parking garage at a hospital in New York.  The building was shipped to the site fully assembled and ready for use by the guards that provide 24/7 security services.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to assemble?

The advantage to buying a Porta-King security booth is that there is there is no assembly required. The buildings you see in the security booth photo gallery were all constructed at our factory. Once construction is completed, they are shipped to your site ready for immediate occupancy. We do manufacturer larger guard buildings that cannot be shipped over the road in one piece so instead we design them as a single unit, build them in modules, then ship them to your site where they are easily connected onsite to create the final design.

I just need your standard size building.

We offer standard models in specific dimensions for both our Durasteel and Duraluminum security booths but almost every unit we create includes at least a little custom design in order to meet your specific application requirements.

How is the building anchored?

All buildings are supplied with anchor tabs that enable the security booth to be permanently anchored into place. Our Durasteel models include anchor tabs that are already welded to the base frame of the building. Duraluminum security booths include anchor tabs that are shipped loose for installation onsite.

I just need a budget number.

We are always happy to comply with this request. Our preference is to supply you with a formal estimate so that you have a document confirming our price. You may also find it useful to visit our security booth gallery. There you can review a wide range of construction and design options. A form allows you to easily request a budget estimate for the model(s) you choose.

What are my color choices?

You can request our standard color choice guide, or we can also custom color match from any paint sample you supply. All booths are painted a single color, or you can request an optional multi-color application.

How do you prevent rust on your steel booths?

We clean all steel surfaces then we apply a high-solid, rust inhibitive primer then a finish coat of two-part polyurethane paint.

What is your lead time?

Lead times vary depending on the product and design you choose. Many of our Durasteel buildings include custom design features that typically take longer to produce. We will always try to accommodate your lead time requirements whenever possible so please be sure to discuss this with your Porta-King representative.

How is it shipped?

All security booths are shipped on flatbed trucks and strapped in place to ensure stability during transport. We encourage you to thoroughly inspect your new booth upon arrival and prior to signing the bill of lading.

How do you offload the units?

Most buildings can be off loaded with a forklift. Every booth is shipped with skid gear to enable easy access under the base frame. We can also provide lifting rings in the roof for larger booths or other custom rigging devices to address unique installation requirements.

Fast Installation Keeps You On Schedule & On Budget

In addition, all our prefabricated security booths are shipped ready-to-occupy, keeping you on schedule and on budget. These guard shacks can also be easily moved as your security needs change.
