ASK DAVE BLOG:  Key insights from B.I.G.


Dear Dave,

My Architect specified your Ocean Park style Guard Booth, when the job was completed, I was surprised to see a booth from another manufacturer. The wall panels were specified to have a Architectural X pattern stamped into them. The booth I received had bars welded to the outside for the X, is that how you do it?

Dear Sir,

I’m sorry to hear this and thank you for specifying B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. To answer your question, No. We actually take that galvanized steel wall and use our Press Brake to stamp the X pattern into the wall panel itself, before it is welded to the frame. We constantly see manufacturers trying to copy our designs, which we are flattered by, but the end results are never the same.

Dear Dave,

I’m looking to purchase a replacement booth for my facility.  My current booth has a diamond plate steel floor that was painted.  The paint on the floor wore off really fast, now my floor is completely rusted out, and the diamond plate pattern is really hard on the equipment in the booth, like our chairs. Does your diamond plate work better?

Dear Mr. Ruff and Rusted,

I understand your concern.  Our booth proposal will include our standard floor, which is 11ga. steel plate, no diamond plate pattern.  The 11ga. steel is then covered with 1\8” thick x 19” square industrial rubber tiles with 4” base cove.  The floor covering is sealed to the 11ga. and the standard tile color is neutral black. The floor is protected and the surface is easy to clean and work with.
