How Much Do Guard Booths Cost?

Those looking for guard shacks for sale need to balance their budget against the quality of the infrastructure they need. Most manufacturers will price each booth out by its square footage, depending on the amenities and materials used to construct it. You can find low-range booths for as low as $30 a square foot, while the upper end can skew toward $150 or more. When you search for security buildings, you need to take into account how sturdy they are, the size and shape of the structure, and how the booth helps professionals prepare if danger does happen to strike. 

Comprehensive Guard House Design

The design of a guard house can have a lot to do with how employees feel about their job, and how visitors interact with the establishment. When you care about the look and quality of the booths you use, you have a better chance of getting more out of the people related to your organization. Guards in a security booth may feel isolated in any number of ways due to their position within the company, whether it's a physical or mental separation. Spending a little more on a guard booth can be paid back tenfold in terms of productivity and protection. 

Designing the booth means thinking about the people who use it the most. Guards may feel uncomfortable sitting in the booth if they're constantly in direct sunlight. They may resent the physical difficulty of conferring with visitors (depending on the configuration of the booths). When you buy a guard house that encourages a sense of camaraderie and comfort, you take care of the root of these problems for many years to come. Range towers and guard booths don't have to be as luxurious as a spa, but they should make guards feel welcome, supported and valued, In other words, your booths should be no less attractive or functional than your single most important conference room.
