B.I.G. Announces New Two-Story Booth for Security Officials with High-Security Needs, but Low-Dollar Budgets

El Monte, California- B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc™, a leading manufacturer of prefabricated security and revenue-control structures for over 29 years, announces the immediate availability of their Model #DS7612OBS Two-Story Guard Booth.

B.I.G.'s modern design department has harnessed the latest CAD tools to create a uniquely sturdy guard booth that stands two-stories high to satisfy the needs of high-visibility applications. Designed to meet U.L. standards for up to "Level 7 Bullet Resistance," this guard booth helps ensure the sufficient protection of security personnel.

"We are proud to have met the challenge of creating an extremely safe and structurally sound guard booth that fits within the budget of cash-strapped businesses and organizations," said Dave King, Vice President of B.I.G. "The real trick was coming up with a design that was not only tough, but aesthetically-pleasing as well."

The B.I.G. Two-Story Guard Booth can be delivered to any site as a fully approved, pre-fabricated structure that, once mounted on a cement pad and connected to available utilities, is almost immediately ready for occupancy.

"One of our very first booths is being delivered to a lot in New York that needed constant surveillance," said King. "We know it will serve that application aptly, but we stand ready to customize the Two-Story Guard Booth to meet the security needs of any public or private organization, while still fitting within their budget constraints."

Factory installed electrical and mechanical systems, heavy duty commercial metal swing doors, industrial-grade floor tile, completely insulated galvanized steel construction, OSHA approved stairway and landing, built-in cabinets and shelves, and insulated glass attest to the completeness and structural integrity of the booth.

Utilizing a proprietary "Critical Span" manufacturing technique, the B.I.G. Two-Story Guard Booth’s galvanized steel construction meets or exceeds ASTM B500 specifications, and all welds meet or exceed AWS-D1.3 and A5.18 standards. High quality, impact and chemically-resistant paint finish adds to the booth’s ability to withstand most any environmental challenge.

All B.I.G. booths are U.L. approved and manufactured in strict compliance to NEC and UBC specifications while meeting the local building code standards of every major area in the United States and internationally.
