NEWARK, NJ– Porta-King Building Systems, manufacturer of prefabricated structures, recently completed work on security guard booths that will serve the Newark Housing Authority in New Jersey. The custom booths that Porta-King installed will better protect the housing authority guards in Newark.
Due to the heightened safety needs of the housing authority, it was imperative to improve security of the guard buildings. The previously used building had no ballistic rating, whereas the new security booth has a level IV ballistic rating.
The new and improved security booths measure 15 feet by 5 feet and will allow for a secure and safe location for the guards that occupy the booth 24 hours a day.
According to Gregg Pearlstone, Vice President of Porta-King, the new security guard booths at the Newark Housing authority are a vast improvement to the previous building. “Not only will these bullet resistant guard booths hold up under the heaviest usage, but they feature a pre-plumbed restroom so the guard will not have to leave their post.”
Porta-King is able to ship the guard buildings directly to the construction site completely assembled, which eliminates considerable down time that would be required for conventional construction.
“As a custom manufacturer, we can create guard booths that meet your needs for both form and function. Our time tested construction methods create buildings that will hold up under all conditions,” Pearlstone said.
Porta-King Building Systems offer the best warranties in the industries on all their products.
