How to Determine the Right Design for You

To determine the best possible design that truly meets your requirements, facility managers need to educate themselves on their facilities' security needs. Do you require a portable booth design, or will your booth be stationary? Is it essential that your booth match the architecture and visual aesthetics of your location? Are you in a high-risk area or a relatively low-risk area?

For example, higher security locations with a more severe threat, such as data centers and nuclear power facilities, represent the highest perimeter security level due to the threat of a terrorist attack. For these locations, we manufacture bullet & blast resistant booths, known in the industry as BBRE's. You'll also want to consider guard wall design specifications for perimeter safety.
