MSSI: How much does a Guard Booth or Guard Shack Cost?
Some of the most commonly asked questions customers ask when it comes to our portable perimeter security solutions are price and cost related. While not every situation is the same, not every customer is the same, and not every "custom" portable perimeter security solution is the same, there is still a baseline of costs that can be determined. There are a wide variety of options and access control solutions that may influence the cost of a guard booth, guard shack, or guard office. This week we’ll take a look at some of the standard features that go into these units and the price associated with the end product.
As a follow up to many requests for pricing for our guard booths, it is first noted that they’re available in a wide range of sizes with a variety of options. From the smallest 4' X 6' guard booth all they way up to multi-box containerized units that have been built up to 15 shipping containers wide, the options really are limitless. In order to fine-tune the objective of pricing these units, we will stick to the 6' X 8', 8' X 10', and 8' X 20' dimensions. These are the most commonly purchased unit sizes and this will help give you, the reader, a better understanding of what to expect when pricing a guard booth, give or take.
Complete with a steel base and steel frame construction, climate control, insulation, windows, doors, and countertops, these are industrial made and heavy duty, thus providing a safer shell for personnel on the inside versus pre-fabricated, cheaper, wooden structures. Our units are able to be relocated over and over again, and the structural integrity will hold up because they’re made of steel and have corner casting and forklift pockets similar to standard ISO shipping containers.
In addition to creating these custom portable guard booths, guard shacks, and guard offices, MSSI offers a standard and custom line of patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals and patent-pending Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portals.
