Prefab B.I.G. Booth at Temple Station Is Just The Ticket
New ticket kiosk design for Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation
Authority (SEPTA) showcases custom details, and right-out-of-the-box
Los Angeles, CA – August 27, 2012 – When SEPTA wanted a “special” booth for
their new Temple Station ticketing facility, they turned to B.I.G. Enterprises,
Inc. (www.bigbooth.com). Many companies represent they build “special” booths,
but only B.I.G. Enterprises met the rigorous standards required by SEPTA for
this prefabricated booth—one that would meet strict construction and superior
architectural standards, and be both bullet-resistant, and ADA compliant. These
features and benefits were only available in a B.I.G. booth. Many have tried to
copy; none have matched B.I.G. Enterprises’ reputation as the leader in the Pre-Fab
Both SEPTA and Temple University support transit-oriented construction projects
that are secured against threat, and which maintain attractive, stylized
architectural elements. Thus, against a vibrant backdrop of public art, The
SEPTA ticket booth combines frank utility with smart urban design, right at the
foot of the university’s train platform.
Inspired by B.I.G.‘s popular Convincer model, The SEPTA booth sports a slightly
arched standing seam roof, and custom colors applied using B.I.G’s proprietary
paint system. The booth’s stainless steel floor is covered with hard-wearing
industrial rubber tile, and a stainless steel ramp and landing means that the
heavily-traveled access areas are both durable and ADA-compliant.
Construction is bullet-resistant throughout (including bullet-resistant pass
through tray), contains attractive laminate interior shelving, and is fully
wired for communications, interior and exterior lighting, HVAC, and all
telephone and data services. All hardware carries a lifetime warranty. Each and
every booth is made with the highest quality materials available, and B.I.G.’s
customers have said that the manufacturing and engineering expertise is second
Like all B.I.G. booths, The SEPTA is delivered fully prefabricated and ready for
installation, so setting up The SEPTA was a snap; shipped in one piece, the unit
was placed on its concrete pad, three wires were plugged in, and the booth was
ready for use.
Though originally designed to serve as a ticketing booth, The SEPTA can be
customized to serve any number of facilities or applications.
