Bullet-Resistant Guard Shacks Improves Security Measures
The old saying “better safe than sorry” may be a more appropriate saying today than ever before. With heightened security risks and concerns for theft and other crimes in mind, now is the time for you and your business to consider giving some thought to the question, “Do I need bullet resistance for my guard shack?”
To try and answer that question means you will need to assess the risks of your business and how applicable this feature may be. For example, law enforcement is more likely to encounter gun violence than a clerk at a grocery store. There are extra precautions and safety protocols, consistently ensuring the safety of those working in risky environments. If your business encounters a lot of people and passersby on a daily basis, this extra security measure may be necessary.
Now, we don’t want to confuse you with the term “bulletproof.” This particular term can be interchanged with the term “bullet-resistant,” but it is generally not the same concept. Ultimately, “bulletproof” is a term that can often be misleading, as even the sturdiest of metal buildings do not have complete resistance to high-speed bullets.
Bullet-resistant buildings will act against various types of weapons, and they do an exceptional job of keeping people safe from an attack. When you find a little building manufacturer that only uses the best products and materials, you can rest assure a bullet-resistant building is going to protect your security guards, parking attendants, and more.
Our bullet-resisting guard shacks have been used by all branches of the U.S. military as well as professional sports teams, pharmaceutical brands, courthouses, and more. Choose one of our standard bullet-resisting guard shacks, or customize your new little building to fit the needs of your property, including specific designs and measurements. Level III bullet-resisting guard shacks are our most popular model sold, but we also manufacture Level VIII buildings for high-security government, utility, and private installations.
Many levels of bullet-resistant guard shacks are available from U.L. 752 Level III through U.L. Level VIII. Additionally, our portable steel buildings can be built to meet NIJ bullet-resistant parameters. Our most popular is our Level III guard shack. Add a built-in restroom for full-time installations.
