Data Center Protection Guard Shack model from B.I.G. represents “next level” security. B.I.G. Enterprises’ prefabricated Data Center Guard Stations are often the security anchor to many data centers’ multi-level security, equipped with perimeter fencing, anti-intrusion systems, dual authentication entry, biometric and color-coded key card security, and interior and exterior video surveillance. But now, B.I.G. has taken the next step in security for Data Centers.

B.I.G. data center protection guard shacks for U.S. Data Centers

B.I.G. Enterprises is the most trusted manufacturer of security guard stations in the [data center] industry.

America’s data centers are among our most expensive construction projects and our most expensive real estate transactions. Of greater importance, the role data centers play in our economy is critical. Our nation would grind to a halt without them.

Understanding this, B.I.G. Enterprises’ (http://www.bigbooth.com) prefabricated Data Center Guard Stations are often the security anchor to many data centers’ multi-level security, equipped with perimeter fencing, anti-intrusion systems, dual authentication entry, biometric and color-coded key card security, and interior and exterior video surveillance. But now, B.I.G. has taken the next step in security for Data Centers.

B.I.G.’s Data Center Protection Guard Shack model features:
-Every amenity needed for comfort and secure operation is included. Lighting (inside and out), HVAC, excellent visibility, precision designed and manufactured doors, windows and work surfaces.
-Energy compliant, meeting all 50 U.S. States’ building codes.    
-Bullet resistant construction to any protection level required
-Restrooms, IT, Data, IDF & Security areas when required. Conduits and J-Boxes for data, communications, cameras, gate controls, EFO buttons and more.
-The B.I.G. standard continuous insulation wall system guarantees efficient energy use and comfort in all weather conditions.
-State Certified modular building approvals provided for any State when required.

Because of their key role, B.I.G.’s Data Center Guard Stations are constructed in a state-of-the-art factory under controlled conditions permitting tighter tolerances in execution, and quality material control enabling not just cost saving construction, but superior construction than site-built structures.

And when delivered on-site, their plug and play installation design makes them virtually, immediately operational. This feature reduces obstruction, congestion, and delay at critical choke points during installation. B.I.G. knows that after screening and admission of guests, the security staff can more efficiently direct traffic, shepherd visitors from checkpoint to checkpoint and discourage unattended wandering about the facility.

So, while B.I.G. has dozens of existing models that provide optimum visibility to guards, protection from the elements and optional ballistic protection, if customization is required, B.I.G. design staff are prepared to meet the specifications of the project.

B.I.G. Data Center Guard Stations are manufactured to be energy and building code compliant in every US city. The Data Center Guard Stations come wired to client specifications supporting information, communication, and surveillance technology.

Units are electrostatically painted with RUST inhibitive coating system for longer life. Doors and windows are tested to assure they will hold up under continuous use. And the HVAC units offer years of maintenance-free use, assuring a workspace conducive to helping security staff remain alert.

Many customers have said, “B.I.G. Enterprises is the most trusted manufacturer of security guard stations in the [data center] industry.”

B.I.G. delivers what is needed for any Data Center

Another mandate is supporting Data Center security staff with efficient, working environments. A data center’s perimeter security staff is its first line of defense. B.I.G. workspaces make it easier, not harder to do the guard’s job of screening all potential visitors, monitoring and verifying the credentials of all who enter the property, staff and guests, preventing unauthorized access, and identifying suspicious behavior.

Ways in which B.I.G. Guard Stations support this activity is by protecting the staff from the elements in a climate-controlled space with excellent visibility, and sufficient power hook-ups for communications equipment and lighting. And, when specified, employing ballistic protection systems to give guards a “fighting chance”.

These features are critical for when there is an emergency, an explosion, or even a fire. At these times, your property’s access and egress point, Guard Station(s) become the first and primary point(s) of contact with first responders. They need to be configured to facilitate communication within your data center and with the outside world.

The presence of strong perimeter barriers under the constant watchful eyes of vigilant security personnel goes a long way to persuade intruders to look for easier targets. Data Center Protection Guard Stations are the front-line command centers for perimeter control. And even when the facility wishes to remain anonymous their mere presence can dissuade.
