For modern security guard house designs, a sturdy frame ensures durability and robust protection against environmental challenges and potential security breaches. We reinforce joints and welds to increase structural integrity. These practices are essential for withstanding adverse weather conditions and hostile attacks.

Each guard house frame has to be at least 2" x 2" x .083", with structural, mechanical steel tubing formed for accuracy. Besides being aesthetically pleasing, B.I.G. prefab offices and guard shack enclosures offer a superior structure capable of handling a 220-mile-per-hour wind load.

Wall System

At B.I.G. Enterprises, our approach to wall system construction in guard house design comes from decades of engineering expertise. We incorporate materials that are secure, durable, and regulate temperature. Each unit must be energy efficient while offering the flexibility necessary for various customization options to meet specific aesthetic and functional requirements.

Wall systems utilize minimum, 16 gauge, cold-rolled galvanized steel interior and exterior panels with MIG welding between the frame and mullions. Units have minimum R-10 exterior continuous insulation encapsulated within the final external layer of 16 gauge, galvanized steel wall panels. Because of this, our modern security guard house designs feature comfort levels, durability, and strength are outstanding.

Roofing System

In our pursuit of excellence, we engineer roofing systems that stand out for their durability and security. Our selection of high-grade metals with formidable interior components provides our clients with additional safety and longevity. We ensure each guard house remains impervious to harsh elements.

Regardless of the guard house design you select, all structures manufactured by B.I.G. feature an internal steel-framed roof with a 16 gauge, galvanized steel roof deck welded to the frame. We coat each roof deck with a three-part roofing membrane with a solar reflective index of 95 or greater. Drainage occurs through a guttering system comprised of downspouts.

Flooring System

B.I.G. meticulously selects flooring systems that marry durability with aesthetic appeal. Our choices reflect a deep understanding of the operational needs of each guard house design. Recognizing the importance of safety, we utilize slip-resistant finishes that are easy to clean and maintain.

Standard booth flooring of our modern security guard house design features 12 gauge, galvanized steel floor decks welded to galvanized steel tubular perimeter frame with joists. The floor deck has 20" x 20" polyvinyl chloride interlocking tiles with a 4" base cove. The interior side of the frame includes welded steel anchor plates with pre-drilled holes.


Premium doors embody the pinnacle of security, functionality, and aesthetic harmony. Therefore, we strive to produce unparalleled strength and resistance. Each door supports advanced locking mechanisms, including options for electronic and biometric systems, adding a layer of sophistication and high security.

Our guard house design layouts are available with either sliding or swinging doors. Slide doors have steel tube frames and 16 gauge insulated galvanized steel panels. Doors are top-hung from a welded, fixed-place steel track. It features eight 2 1/4" rigid steel ball-bearing rollers with a lower stainless-steel guide.
