Guard Shack Features

Guard shacks provide several benefits to businesses and properties of a wide variety. Gated communities, schools, and large commercial properties all require more up-front protection that regular security systems cannot provide. Custom guard shacks offer critical front lines of protection without sticking out like a sore thumb thanks to an endless list of customizations. There are several features and design options that you should consider when building a guard shack for your property. These features provide added safety, security, and design aesthetic benefits.

Some of these customizations include:

  • Safety Features:
    Hurricane Code Compliance
    ADA Compliance
    One, Two, and Three Fire Hour Ratings
    Earthquake Resistance
    Bullet & Blast Proof
    Miami-Dade High Velocity Wind Zone Requirements
  • Security Features:
    Sally Ports
    Fixed & PTZ Cameras
    High-Intensity Lighting
    Bollard Posts as Protective Barriers (upon request)
    Alarm System Wiring
    Gate Arms
  • Design Features:
    Real Brick Exterior
    Custom Roofing
    Cosmetic Enhancements
    Built-In Restrooms
    Extra Doors
    Sliding Windows
    Enhanced Desk Space

Combine any of these features to create a custom guard shack perfect for your company’s needs. Enhanced safety measures provide benefits for employees, residents, and guests, as well as offering long-term security benefits for your property. Guard shacks can also play a critical role in the business continuity plans of companies and local, state, and federal organizations.

Residential communities, educational properties, and HOAs also benefit from the sense of peace an on-property security presence can bring. Guard shacks can house security teams as well as serve as an entrance gate to your property. Guard shacks are a solid investment in the safety and security of your property, without sacrificing design aesthetics.
