Benefits of Guard Shacks

security guard boothsGuard shacks have become an essential element in ensuring safety and security for businesses, along with a secure and comfortable environment for workers. These versatile structures offer a range of benefits that can meet the specific needs of your business. 


Businesses can customize guard shack enclosures to fit their unique circumstances.

Added options include styled roofs, exterior and interior lighting, sliding or swing doors, sliding windows, and even size. Other customization options include an added ADA-compliant restroom, bullet proof windows, doors and walls.

Optional architectural features are also available, including faux stone & wood veneers, masonry brick veneers, standing seam roofs, expanded metal hip-style roofs, and custom signage.


Guard shacks are built for strength and durability. Our products use top-quality materials, including painted steel and anodized aluminum, to resist daily wear and harsh weather.

With proper care, these sturdy guard shack buildings offer reliable security, giving a stable space for security staff to work. 

Affordable & Fast Installation

security guard shacksPre-built guard houses are an affordable and low-cost solution for businesses looking to add a prefabricated shelter, booth, kiosk or any other exterior shelter.

Different from traditional construction projects, the prefabricated building ships fully assembled and ready to be forklifted into place for immediate use. Eliminating the need for any contractor coordination that normally occurs in traditional construction.


Our lightweight guard shack enclosures can accommodate different tasks and can be relocated as needed to address changing security requirements.

Modular guard shacks can be easily put together, taken apart, and rearranged due to being built in distinct modules or sections. We offer many design and layout options that have the capacity to fit any need.

Industrial Testimonials


“Working with Southwest Solutions including Matt, Susan, and especially Brad was great. They provide amazing customer service. Brad and the install team were especially great. Very professional, easy to work with, and did the work quickly and very well with very little input from us. If we need help with carousel storage moves, parts, or new equipment we will start with Southwest Solutions. ”

“The team at Southwest Solutions were nothing short of fantastic. First meeting with Craig, I received a customized design, in person, based on my office needs while still maintaining an efficient layout and being cost effective. Craig explained everything clearly, allowing me to understand that as modular mill-work, I would be able to move it if I ever changed offices, but without the added sales pressure to immediately make a decision. Once I had decided, I worked with Chris who assisted in picking out the finishes and scheduling the delivery and installation. The professionalism of Craig and Chris spoke volumes and I would highly recommend anyone looking to transform or fit-out an office to contact Southwest Solutions.”
