Range Towers

In high places, occupants need a stable, safe structure that is both affordable and practical. Porta-King’s prefabricated towers are designed with pre-engineered structural steel components to create a structure that will last for years and offer you the security you need. Range towers at your military base or government building offer a 360 degree, long distance view of the surrounding area.

A Strong Range Tower Design Keeps Occupants Safe

Range towers offer that protection with various features designed to promote safety and practicality, including:

  • Industrial grade polyurethane acrylic paint to resist nicks and scratches.
  • Galvanized steel construction to keep the tower rust free and resistant to weather conditions.
  • Guard railings on all stairs and platforms for additional safety.

All of our prefabricated towers are designed in strict compliance with local codes, including the codes under the IBC 2006 that govern the standards for seismic ground activity. These strict standards ensure a safe product.

Cleaner Than Traditional Construction

Prefabricated towers can be built in one to two days, reducing the downtime and construction debris experienced with traditional construction. A preassembled building can also accompany the range tower to complete the installation by giving occupants a comfortable place to stay by keeping them out of the weather.

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the key advantages of choosing Porta-King for your range tower is the elimination of on-site welding during the installation process. Porta-King’s range towers are designed for completely bolted construction, ensuring a seamless and efficient installation that saves valuable time and money.

By eliminating the need for welding, Porta-King’s towers can be installed quickly and easily, without the need for specialized equipment or skilled welders. This bolt-together design not only streamlines the installation process but also allows for greater flexibility in terms of future modifications or expansions. With Porta-King, you can enjoy significant savings on installation costs while benefiting from a high-quality, durable structure that meets your specific security needs.

Porta-King’s range towers are constructed with a galvanized finish to provide superior durability and longevity in outdoor applications. Unlike painted finishes, which are prone to rusting over time, galvanized steel offers unparalleled resistance to corrosion and weathering.

By choosing a galvanized finish, Porta-King ensures that their range towers maintain their structural integrity and professional appearance for years to come, even in harsh outdoor conditions. This commitment to quality and durability is a testament to Porta-King’s dedication to providing their customers with reliable, long-lasting security solutions that deliver exceptional value and performance.

To maintain structural integrity and optimize functionality, Porta-King generally limits the range tower footprint to 18′ x 18′. This size maximizes stair economics and allows for a stable, four-column design. While larger deck sizes are possible, they may require additional columns and the potential for a column to protrude through the deck, as determined by engineering requirements.

Porta-King’s range towers are designed to provide ample space for surveillance equipment, personnel, and storage, ensuring that security teams have the necessary resources to effectively monitor and protect the facility. When selecting a range tower, it’s essential to consider your specific space requirements and choose a solution that offers the ideal balance of functionality and structural integrity.

Porta-King’s range towers are designed with stairways wrapped around the exterior of the structure to maximize the usable deck area at the top. By positioning the stairs on the outside of the tower, the entire top deck remains unobstructed, providing ample space for equipment, personnel, and storage.

This innovative design feature ensures that the stairs do not intrude into the valuable deck area, allowing for optimal functionality and efficiency. The external stairway also adds to the overall stability and aesthetic appeal of the range tower, creating a cohesive and professional appearance that complements any security installation.

Porta-King’s range towers are engineered to reach an impressive maximum height of 70′, providing an optimal vantage point for surveillance and security applications. These towering structures offer a clear, unobstructed view of the surrounding area, ensuring that personnel can effectively monitor and respond to potential threats. For comparison, Porta-King’s band and sport video towers have a maximum height of 52′. When selecting a range tower, it’s crucial to consider the specific height requirements of your facility and choose a solution that offers the best possible perspective for your security needs.
