We had a small debate and tried to figure out what the difference was between a guard house and a guard shack.  Some people said it had to do with size; others thought it had to do with the manufacturer.  Ultimately we agreed that those are just two ways of describing the same thing.


When folks think of a guard shack they are typically thinking of a smaller structure.  These are the types of security buildings you’d see in front of a smaller facility, or perhaps where there is only the need for one security guard at a time.

When most people envision a guard house they are picturing a larger structure.  We can easily build a guard house than can accommodate several guards and include some of the “comforts of home” like HVAC units and a variety of windows that slide or are double- paned.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter what you call them.  We have the structures to house your security team and keep your facility safe.  Contact us today to learn more about our guard houses or guard shacks.
