Custom-designed guard towers

June 2016 Products

Guard towers are a major deterrent for car thieves in parking areas and a host of other locations people need to secure. Custom designed bullet proof towers are designed to ensure visibility for the guards as well as protection from high risk theft/assault.

Says Venessa Mitsingas, MD of John Elliott Security, “Our company is a leader in the design, manufacture and installation of guard towers from moderate risk to ultra-high risk applications. This is done in our design and manufacturing facility at Wadeville, Germiston.”

The guard tower design function is headed up by senior executive, Desiree De Andrade, who has more than 10 years’ experience in the design, manufacture and installation of guard towers.

Says De Andrade, “Interpreting and understanding customer needs is paramount. John Elliot has recently installed three custom-designed and built guard towers for a major mining group at its cable storage areas, where cable theft was out of control. Since installing the guard towers, cable theft has all but been eliminated. We are currently consulting with San Parks in the north of the Kruger Park bordering Mozambique to counter rhino poaching.”
