ST. LOUIS, MO— From parking lots to government buildings to Fortune 500 companies, many industries use Porta-King’s Durasteel shelters to enclose their turnstiles and protect equipment from inclement weather. Not only do these shelters protect sensitive equipment from the elements, but they also heighten security.
“Porta-King’s shelters protect sensitive keycard readers and access control equipment from the weather while adding an extra level of security at nearly any facility,” said Gregg Pearlstone, Vice President at Porta-King. “These shelters can prevent trespassers from climbing turnstiles in order to gain access into secured areas.”
Many facilities install Durasteel shelters near their guard booths, allowing security personnel to constantly supervise people passing through secured areas. During long security checkpoints, Durasteel shelters also protect employees and customers from the weather. Since these shelters are shipped fully assembled, installation is quick and cost-efficient. If clients require installation service, Porta-King offers a nationwide network of factory authorized contractors who can provide turn-key installation services. All shelter models include an industrial grade acrylic enamel paint finish, bituminous coating on structural support tubes and anchoring plates, factory-installed roofs with gutters and standard glazing of 3/16” tempered safety glass.
Shelters are available in designs with two, three or four walls, and with flat or domed roofs. Options for Porta-King shelters include interior and exterior lighting to improve nighttime visibility, polycarbonate or Plexiglas to prevent breakage and turnkey project design and installation.
Porta-King has been a leader in custom-designed shelters since 1969. In addition to its exterior shelters, Porta-King also manufacturers pre-fabricated buildings for guard booths and many other exterior applications. Porta-King also offers a full line of modular wall systems and enclosures including single and two-story designs, as well as structural steel mezzanines used for storage, production and elevated office space. Porta-King buildings provide shelter and storage solutions for virtually any working environment. For more information, visit www.portaking.com or call 800-284-5346.
