Guard Booth 15-138e

The highest levels of security can be achieved with a bullet resistant guard booth or security building from Par-Kut International. After assessing the threat level in the intended location, a corresponding level for the bullet resistant components in the security booth is specified. A factory assembled Par-Kut security booth will include laminated bullet resistant glass, a hardened ballistically protected door, and armor plate bullet resistant walls. Optionally, the roof and floor of the security booth can be specified as bullet resistant.

In business since 1954, Par-Kut International regularly manufactures bullet resistant guard booths and security guard enclosures with levels of protection from UL1 up to NIJ4. The level of ballistic protection is determined on a case by case basis with location, type of facility and hours of operation being key factors.

Once the protective level is selected, the size of the security booth, number of doors, HVAC, electrical features, countertops and possible architectural features are added. Sometimes, with lower levels of bullet resistant construction, sliding windows and/or transaction drawers can be added.

The bullet resistant glass in a Par-Kut security booth is typically laminated glass clad polycarbonate. This make-up affords good protection and also allows for tinting, reflective and even insulated options. The installation of the bullet resistant glass in a Par-Kut security booth includes solid interior steel stops or collars which are mechanically fastened and all threat angles are considered in the design.

When you have need for a bullet resistant security booth, contact Par-Kut International for ideas and a proposal to suit your needs.

In Plant Office 15-196k

Many businesses install modular in plant offices, also known as prefabricated offices or prefab offices, to add office space, a break room, or a control room within their facility. In this blog article, we will examine the benefits of incorporating a modular inplant office in an existing plant. There are several key advantages with the installation of a modular in plant office.

Prefab Office x11-166g

First of all, prefab in plant offices save money and time. Traditional office space designs are rigid and immovable with block and drywall construction, but these prefabricated in plant offices are movable. These offices can easily be installed in few days, compared to weeks for conventional office construction. A modular inplant office does not require a lot of labor and is easily installed in any plant. Prefab office systems are quicker and more efficient and the easy installation reduces construction time.

Second, modular in-plant offices improve employee efficiency in the plant. In the industrial manufacturing field, improving employee efficiency can give you a competitive advantage over other businesses. In plant offices allow production and quality control supervisors to remain in temperature controlled rooms while maintaining a clear view of their operations. Plant workers will be more productive with their supervisors nearby for rapid responses to questions. Furthermore, Par-Kut prefab offices are flexible to future in plant layout changes such as adapting new technology or reconfiguring the manufacturing process. The prefab office space can be easily modified to meet unique layouts as necessary and these systems can easily fit the new in plant office space. Par-Kut can provide fully assembled and portable offices, or, panelized and site assembled. Finally, all Par-Kut in plant offices come with the added benefit of customizable options based on your needs. Par-Kut prefab offices provide wide variety of colors and finishes as well as various options for doors, windows, wall thicknesses, and electrical packages. All Par-Kut prefab offices are built to order.

Mobile Security Booth

Mobile Security Booth 15-078k

Par-Kut has been building single unit welded security booths for over 60 years and our customers have enlightened us to the fact that stationery units are not always the solution to their needs. In many cases there is a desire to frequently move the security booth from location to location as needed. While all Par-Kut security booths are portable, having a TRAILER mounted booth allows the customer to transport the booth in an instant.

Construction sites routinely have entrance points that change throughout the project life. These temporary gates are a perfect application for a trailer mounted security booth. Including a larger trailer deck allows for the installation of gate arms, which truly offers Enter/Exit control for the security guards and can help a location deal with parking for a seasonal peak .

Educational institutions may have specific areas of concern that need to be focused on for a period of time or to set up a temporary informational station. In this case, customers can include sliding transaction windows in the booth so the guards or employees can communicate without leaving the portable trailer mounted security booth.

Entertainment venues can quickly move trailer mounted Security/Ticket Booths into position for extremely large events. Having this ability increases the amount of security checks right at the entrance to the facility and keeps the movement of traffic at it’s peak.

However, the largest demand for Trailer mounted Security booths comes in the form of check points at highly sensitive, secured locations. These types of locations will usually require one of Par-Kut’s ballistic buildings that are modified per the customer’s desires and/or specifications. This can include bullet resistant protection (all UL & NIJ Levels) for walls, glazing, doors, roof, and floor if necessary. These units are equipped with a heavy duty tandem axle trailer.

Guards In Elevated Guard Booths Help Shoppers Feel Secure

Guard Booth SEC-015

Security guard officers stationed in elevated guard booths can enhance area security and help shoppers feel safer. Adding elevated guard booths staffed with professional security officers in the parking lots of retail outlets and shopping malls makes shoppers feel that their cars and personal belongings are safe.

With a prefab guard booth that elevated 10-12 feet, and with 360 degree windows, the security officers will have a clear line of sight into the sea of parking spaces that typically surround a mall. It’s like a lifeguard stand at a beach, but this observation post is watching over shoppers, not swimmers. In addition to providing extra security for people as they go to and from their vehicles, the elevated guard booth helps deter vandalism to vehicles, theft of items from the vehicles and car theft.

A study shows that the number of parking-lot crimes as well as motor-vehicle thefts can be dropped by more than 50 percent with the installation of an elevated security booth.

To elevate a guard booth is fairly simple and can be accomplished with a total factory solution which includes a factory assembled security booth and a welded steel platform with steps and a safety railings. If you already have a platform in your mall, a new guard booth can be engineered to be bolted to an existing platform.Par-Kut elevated guard booths can be installed atop a concrete block platform, or other customer supplied stand or tower. If you have a booth and want to elevate it, Par-kut can also provide a factory assembled, or site erected platform to suit.

Whichever type of platform used, an elevated guard booth is a great way to increase security in a mall as well as making shoppers feel secure. For more information about elevated guard booths, and to give your security a lift, contact us, or call 1(800)394-6599.
