Why installing Guard Towers/Guard Houses on your premises is important for security
Whether for your business or your home, having a guard tower or house on your premises is beneficial when it comes to security. Guard towers allow for unobstructed views which means that you can see what is happening beyond your premises and assess potential threats. It allows for security of the property as well as the guard sitting in the tower.
Built for Safety:
Guard towers are for the security of your property, but they are also built with the safety of the guard in mind. For the guard to do their job properly, it is important for them to be secure. At the top of a guard tower there is a room. This room protects the guard from the weather conditions. These rooms can also be fitted with bullet proof glass depending on their working conditions.
The guard room is surrounded by a walkway with a railing. This ensures the security of the guard if they are patrolling outside the guard room. The guard room is accessed by use of a ladder or stairs which allows them to take appropriate action before the threat reaches them.

Situating the guard room above ground gives the guard a clear view of the surrounding area. The height allows them to see and control any potential threats. It also gives the guard time to act before the threat is too close or even too far.
Guard towers are also beneficial when you are trying to stop something from leaving the property. Prisons use guard towers to monitor prisoners and to prevent prisoners from escaping. Game farms also use guard towers to prevent animals from escaping or poachers from entering. Guard towers are used for security purposes.
