B.I.G. Enterprises Announces Sturdy Transaction Window for High Volume Applications
Steel-framed window withstands thousands of openings and closing per day.

El Monte, California- B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc., a leading manufacturer of prefabricated security and revenue-control structures for over 30 years, announces the immediate availability of their all-steel High Volume Transaction (HVT™) window -- opening a new dimension in durability for high frequency applications such as parking lots, security booths, toll houses, ticket booths and information kiosks.

B.I.G.'s exclusive steel-framed HVT windows withstand repeated opening and closing levels that normal aluminum-framed windows can't begin to approach. Perfect for peak-period applications, the slide window provides both a full opening Ð for instances where a long reach to a vehicle is required Ð along with a smaller internal steel framed slide window for inclement weather situations.

Top hung in an industrial-grade steel track with eight heavy-duty rollers and a stainless steel bottom track, the transaction window is capable of withstanding tens of thousands of hours of non-stop use.

"Before we created this booth we evaluated high volume applications at places such as O'Hare Airport," said Dave King, Sales Manager at B.I.G. Enterprises. "We learned that a parking transaction window, for example, needed to be opened and shut up to 360 times per hour. Aluminum couldn't begin to handle the stress, so we utilized steel to case our windows."

B.I.G.'s HVT windows can be specified in any B.I.G. booth, kiosk, house, or room. All B.I.G. structures can be delivered to any site as fully approved, pre-fabricated structures that, once mounted on a cement pad and connected to available utilities, are almost immediately ready for occupancy. Factory installed electrical and mechanical systems, commercial-grade metal swing doors, industrial-grade floor tile, completely insulated galvanized steel construction, built-in cabinets and shelves, and insulated glass attest to the completeness and structural integrity of the booths. The galvanized steel structure of all B.I.G. booths meet or exceed ASTM B500 specifications, and all welds meet or exceed AWS-D1.3 and A5.18 standards.
