Guard Shack Applications

Guard shack built using storage containers

Providing portable guard shack solutions for manufacturing plants, construction sites and more

United Rentals carries a vast supply of storage containers and modular buildings that are excellent for use as guard shack enclosures. Using a storage container or mobile office as a guard shack is more cost effective than employing traditional stick-built construction for your security booth. Our portable guard shack buildings can be expanded upon, renovated or relocated at any time, allowing you to tweak or move them whenever necessary. We also offer prefabricated guard shacksthat serve as more permanent installations, yet still offer cost savings over traditional construction methods.

We offer guard shacks for sale and guard shack rentalsto suit our customers’ specific needs, and all our units can be built offsite to reduce downtime on a jobsite. We encourage our customers to customize their structures with some or all of our optional custom features, including large cutout windows, doors, desks, locks, HVAC units and more. United Rentals is here to work with you to deliver the ideal guard shack solution for your needs, whether they’re temporary or permanent.

Power Plant Guard Shack

Power Plant Guard Shack

This 9’6" by 21' custom steel guard house is in the mountains of North Carolina at a brand new 560-megawatt natural gas power plant. A general contractor needed a pre-manufactured guard shack at the main entrance for personnel. Built with safety and energy efficiency in mind, the building consists of 4-inch-thick steel walls, a polyiso foam core roof with mineral wool insulation, a 20-gauge insulated steel door, a climate control system, a sprinkler system and an ADA-compliant bathroom with fixtures. The windows are 3-foot by 3-foot with quarter-inch tempered safety wired glass and are an integral part of the wall panel. The doors are one-hour fire rated, and the windows are 45-minute fire rated. The flooring is an attractive white marbled vinyl composite tile with 4-inch black vinyl cove molding. Further, we matched the new guard shack's paint to the surrounding buildings our customer was constructing onsite.  

After construction, the building was approved by the NCECC (North Carolina Energy Conservation Code). With the guard house built offsite, the risk of personnel injury was reduced, which saved our customer costs related to insurance, workers' compensation and lost worker hours.

Made from a 10-foot container, this unit was fitted with vertical and horizontal sliding windows, a steel door with a window and locks, an HVAC unit, electricity and lighting. The container is easy to transport with forklift pockets located along the bottom of the container. This unit only took three weeks to produce, presenting unique savings on time and budget.
