When you are speaking with a Par-Kut sales professional about your guard house, especially, a prefab guard house, it is important to identify the city and state where your guard booths are going to be installed. Codes regulating all types of factory assembled structures, including prefab guard houses, vary from state to state. Please have this information ready when you contact Par-Kut for a quote on your guard house. Prefabricated guard houses are lumped together with other pre manufactured structures for code purposes, although this practice does not take into consideration the vast differences in typical applications. However, a guard house from Par-Kut will meet or exceed most model building codes. Prefabricated guard booths can be amortized for tax purposes if recordable as the proper type of equipment. Check with your accounting dept, or financial advisor to see what steps should be taken for proper recording of your prefabricated guard booth. Prefab guard shacks and modular guard houses, when specified and purchased properly, will serve for decades. Par-Kut will work with you to outline your needs and a budget price for the guard shack or guard house that you need for a guard shelter.

Entrance Booth

This Brooklyn community required a “built on site” appearance, with the advantages of a pre-fabricated building. While Par-Kut buildings are typically finished with our superior polyurethane coating over smooth galvaneal steel panels, the site architect here wanted to further compliment some of their location’s design elements. Accordingly, Par-Kut added decorative window frames and muntins, white vinyl siding, a hip style standing seam metal roof, bas relief panels in lower exterior walls, and a custom fabricated a cupola that would dimensionally fit the long, narrow building.
The interior was equipped with painted steel countertops and cabinets for an efficient security office layout. Additionally, the building was furnished with a restroom and a separate utility closet. Fan forced heaters supply warmth in cold weather months and a split pack type air conditioner system provides cooling. Building windows were glazed with tinted insulated glass for further climate control.
