Guard House

Guard houses are a type of prefab shelter, also known as a prefabricated shelter, prefabricated building, portable shelter or portable building. Examples of guard houses, also known as guard shelters or guard booths, include border inspection booths, observation or visual towers, ticket booths and security access checkpoints. These various examples of guard houses all share in common the fact that they are installed at various checkpoints or access points to ensure the control who enters and exits the entrance of a premises. Thus, they ensure the accountability and security of all those passing through an area that requires authorization to enter.

Guard houses are relatively compact and thus the most economical way to order them and have them installed is via prefabrication. Prefab shelters, which are constructed and assembled in a factory setting, are usually brought on site by a forklift or crane. Sometimes, they are designed to be knocked down and then instantly assembled on site. All of these methods make for a quick and relatively easy installation. Likewise, prefab guard houses are very easy to construct, particularly when compared to the amount of time and effort it takes to construct a shelter using conventional building methods. Like many other prefab shelters, guard houses are typically considered to be relocatable buildings. This means that they are portable and lack an attached foundation. In addition, so that guard houses can be easily moved, their steel bases are often designed with forklift pockets. Nevertheless, many guard houses are erected as semi-permanent structures and are able to be used in one location for many years.

Because guard houses are not unmanned, they are typically outfitted with certain interior features for the comfort of staff. For example, they almost always ensure ease of access and ease of vision with doors and windows, respectively. In addition, to maintain a comfortable temperature inside, they are generally insulated. Other equipment and systems with which guard houses are often equipped include: wireless internet access, phone jacks, data connections, GFI outlets, BNC jacks, a/v jacks, motion sensor lights, sliding doors, restrooms, interior storage space, counters, wall mounted heating and cooling (HVAC) systems and baseboard heaters. All guard houses are constructed from strong and durable materials, such as structural, stainless or galvanized steel, so as it withstand the onslaught of weather such as high winds, rain and extreme temperatures. In addition, among the strong materials that may be used to construct window panes, whether single, double or sliding are: wire glass, laminated glass, clear safety glass, gray tint safety glass, pattern glass, polycarbonate, plexiglass, lexan, x-ray protection glass and mirrored glass. To seal them against leaks, guard houses are also usually equipped with polyurethane sealed joints. For the protection those guard houses and guards that serve high risk security applications, extra security features are installed. Guard houses such as these include those stationed outside of embassies, military bases or arenas, and those manned by security contract companies meant to protect the people who protect the facilities. Features like bullet proof wall panels and windows protect the guard houses and those in them against gun violence, vandalism, fire and explosions and natural disasters like hurricanes or earthquakes. Regardless of the details of the nature and configuration their the nuts and bolts, the exterior of guard houses can be finished in any number of different ways. Using various paints and coatings, the exterior of a guard house can be coated with company colors, made to blend in with the surroundings or anything else a customer wants. Moving beyond aesthetics, coatings and paints can also infuse a guard house more insulative, or heat rejecting, layers.

Guard houses are excellent investments, providing governmental and private organizations of all kinds with the security and control that they require. They also provide security guards, border agents and other employees working out of guardhouses with comfort and safety, so that they can perform their duties without having to deal with burdens such as extreme heat or off-site bathrooms. Interested parties can order their guard houses in virtually any size and configuration, from small one person shelters to large, multi-functional buildings. Guard houses may be constructed to meet and adhere to the standards of organizations such as ICC (International Code Council, BBB (the Better Business Bureau), USGBC (The U.S. Green Building Council), LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) or OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration).
