“Security structure” sounds like a plain wrap term that can be applied to any building with a lock. It’s not. Protogetic defines a Security Structure as an out-building specifically designed to protect valuable property, information and/or personnel. Security structures can be modular and prefabricated or customized to your exact project requirements. They can also serve dual purposes -- providing office space for personnel or functioning as protective storage units. Some specialized security structures, like gatehouses or watchtowers, are designed for perimeter security, including Surveillance and Intrusion Detection.
Depending on the type and the purpose, there are numerous locations suitable for deploying security structures, including:
Security Structures frame and wall materials are made from numerous materials such as steel, wood, composites and Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRPs).
Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) are composites that are produced by adding fiber materials like fiberglass, carbon fiber or synthetics to a resin matrix, which bonds and protects the fibers. FRP composites are extremely strong and resilient, especially given their weight compared to materials like steel. Fiber Reinforced Polymers have the additional advantages of being both non-corrosive and non-conductive which can be an important consideration in inclement environments or when deployed at electrical utilities, substations and airports.
Security structures, including guard houses, guard booths, gatehouses, watchtowers and storage units, are different than Blast Resistant Modules because they are not blast-rated against explosions. However, this does not mean security structures aren’t highly protective against other dangerous threats. Security structures are integral infrastructure components to a facility because they provide additional perimeter security, Intruder Detection as well as Access Control. Security outbuildings used for storage or workspaces can also provide life-saving cover during hostile attacks.
Yes. Protogetic carries security structures that are rated for ballistic resistance and FEBR. Many have UL 752 ratings that offer protection against an array of firearm types and bullet calibers. The Protogetic Filter allows you to search BRMs and Security Structures for a specific ballistic rating, including National Institutes of Justice protection levels and UL 752 Levels 1-10.
Many Security Structures have windows or window options depending on the model and manufacturer. These windows are typically available with additional protections and ratings for forced entry, FEBR and ballistic resistance. Each window type must have passed the testing standard for the threat type it protects against or it cannot be listed on Protogetic. You can instantly search for security structures with or without windows using our detailed filter.
Absolutely. Security structures are highly adaptable and can be outfitted with numerous additional features to increase safety, security and comfort, including:
