Shelters Direct has long been a leader in the bullet resistant guard booth market. As one of only two (2) manufacturers of bullet resistant guard booths listed on the GSA Federal Supply Schedule prior to September 11, 2001 Shelters Direct continues to lead efforts with innovative design and fabrication techniques.

Our high security bullet resistant guard booths are available to meet the strict guidelines of UL 752 1 through 8 - shotgun, and National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Levels I, II, IIIa, and III. Regardless of your request we can probably handle exactly what you need whether it is laminated glass vs. polycarbonate glass, gun ports, or elevated towers for over watch positions. Shelters Direct has provided prefabricated buildings and booths internationally for Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (AT/FP) Security Upgrade, Access Control Point, Land Ports of Entry (LPOE), Military Entrance Gate,  Wastewater Treatment Plant, Parking Control, Perimeter Security and Warehouse Control projects, among many others.
