In warm weather, especially the middle of summer, working on the exterior of a facility can be a daunting task as outdoor temperatures (especially in New England) can reach high 90⁰F and even 100⁰F!
Providing effective structures that keep your security and outdoor staff protected from the heat and other harsh weather conditions is a must when it comes to their overall safety.
Guard shacks are excellent solutions that can provide this environmental safety, as well as additional safety measures to make for a highly effective exterior solution!
Weather-Protection and Temperature Control Year-Round
Outdoor conditions can be harsh and unpredictable, whether it be intense heat, rainstorms, blizzards, or below freezing temperatures.
Facilities that require exterior processes such as security or additional storage often must station employees outside of the facility to operate these processes. Without the proper structures, employees can be caught out in unfavorable weather making these processes unsafe.
With Panel Built, implementing the proper structures can assist your staff in providing methods for weather protection and even temperature control.
Weather protection is offered through insulated and weatherproof roof systems that keep rain, sleet, snow, and UV rays out. These structures are even protected against harsh winds as they are designed to withstand up to 180 mph wind loads!
Temperature control is also provided from through-wall HVAC units installed in these structures to provide sufficient air conditioning in the summer, and heat in the winter.
Additional Safety of Guard Shacks and Exterior Structures
Panel Built provides structures that are not only weather-protected but also bullet-protected. Panel Built can design guard booths that meet all NIJ and UL bullet resistance ratings providing the required protection for applications with high security needs.
Custom locks can also be added to the doors of these structures allowing only specific personnel to access them. These locks contribute even further to the security aspect of these booths and equipment enclosures as managers can control who has access.
