What Is An Anti-Vandal Office?

As the name suggests, anti-vandal offices are a form of portable cabin designed with toughness and durability in mind to provide increased security. Each of our anti-vandal units are constructed using corrugated steel external walls and feature lockable security shutters.

In addition to their incredibly secure designs, our anti-vandal cabins are equipped with internal office layouts, plug-and-play features, water inlets and waste outlets.

Which Sizes of Portable Cabins Are Available?

The sizes of units available are, of course, dependent on the type of cabin. Here at Manchester Cabins, we supply 3 models of cabin: anti-vandal, jackleg and welfare. Each of these are available in multiple dimensions.

● Our anti-vandal cabins are available in both 10 and 20-foot-long variations, each measuring 8 feet wide.

● Welfare cabins (junior diners and toilet blocks) measure as follows: W: 2.870m, L: 3.350m, H: 2.830m (3.230m with waste tank).

● Jackleg cabins are available in the following 5 sizes: 9’ x 9’, 16’ x 9’, 20’ x 9’, 24’ x 9’ and 32’ x 10’.

What Can Jackleg Cabins Be Used For?

Here at Manchester Cabins, our jackleg cabins are incredibly versatile and can be utilised for a range of different applications. Owing to the range of sizes available and their raised design, these units are ideal for use as offices, first-aid facilities, meeting spaces, ticket booths and security stations.

Moreover, each of our jackleg units is equipped with overhead lighting, power facilities, a stainless steel sink and 15mm water inlet connections.
