Guard Booths Have Numerous Applications in Multiple Industries
Despite names like guard shack and guard booth, guard houses are suitable in a variety of situations, including for correctional facilities and military installations. However, these prefabricated structures are also ideal anywhere else that employees require a safe and secure area where they can complete their jobs without worrying about hazards that could make work more difficult and stressful. Other potential applications for guard booths include:
- Sports stadiums and arenas
- Land Ports of Entry

- Stations for security guards
- A security booth at a bank, hospital, or other facilities
- Mobile security
- University campuses
What’s more, these booths are specifically designed for ease of transportation (they can be easily relocated with a forklift or crane), and this construction makes them naturally stronger than other types of booths.

Custom Designs and Constructions for Special Needs
At BSC, we understand that organizations require guard booths for different reasons, and that’s why these units are custom designed and built according to your unique specifications and requirements. Here’s some more information about the customized solutions available for different applications:
Guard booths are standalone units that are meant to protect the occupants from a variety of elements, and sometimes that means providing safe refuge from the heat or cold. With HVAC-equipped guard booths, you can rest assured that your employees will be safe and comfortable in their working environments, regardless of what the weather is doing.
Welded Steel Construction
When you need a guard booth that’s comfortable, but that also offers maximum security, then you need a welded steel booth. Not only are they durable and enduring, but they’re also low-maintenance and come with customizable security features depending on your needs and location.
Unfortunately, the weather isn’t always the only thing your employees need protection from, and when you have heightened security needs, then a ballistic building is the way to go. Along with having a welded steel base and frame, these units are covered with a strong steel sheeting that makes them compliant as bullet-resistant according to both UL and National Institute of Justice ratings.
Fire-Rated Wall Panels
Another added safety feature you can customize your guard houses with is ASTM-certified fire-resistant wall panels, which have a fire endurance rating of 60 minutes, meaning a booth outfitted with these panels could withstand a fire for an hour.
