Portable Guard Booths

Trailer Mounted Booths - Forkliftable Booths


Portable guard booths are fabricated specifically for applications where an end user must have the capability to easily relocate the booth.

Booths are available in a basic clear anodized embossed aluminum finish with a five-year warranty against oxidation, or painted steel construction, either unrated or ballistic rated in levels up to, and including, NIJ IV.


Booth portability options include;

1) Forklift pockets in the base frame.
2) Custom engineered trailer designed for the specific dimensions and weight of the booth.
3) Heavy-duty structurally engineered platform with lifting eyes, providing airlift capability for front line deployment.



Trailer-mounted booths are generally limited to a maximum width of 6’, to allow transport on a drop-deck flatbed trailer to the destination. However, custom trailers are available to accommodate an 8’ wide booth.

Portable guard booths can not be provided with pre-plumbed restrooms. Electric "Incinolet” toilets are an available option when restroom facilities will be required.


Portable booth options include a prime power or standby power generator permanently mounted to the frame.

A power connector or cord can also be specified for connection to an external power source.

Optional generators can be provided in gas, diesel or multi-fuel models.
Multi-fuel units can utilize diesel, bio-diesel, JP4, or JP8 fuel.

Generators ship factory-mounted on the tongue end of the trailer, or on the structural platform base of models designed for movement by crane or aircraft.

Steel booths and buildings offer limitless design options allowing the customer to select a functional structure while complementing the surrounding architecture.

Ballistic protection
