Extreme Innovation: New Bi-level,
Extreme Weather Security Booths Redefine
B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. announces fabrication of a new fully-assembled
bi-level inspection booth to support Federal Government mandates for securing
borders between the U.S. and Canada.
Los Angeles, CA – December 19, 2011 – Working with experts in the security
field, including the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Jacob Engineering, and Parsons
Engineering, B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. (www.bigbooth.com) recently manufactured
and delivered a series of bi-level, extreme weather booths to U.S. Canadian
border check points. Prior to this recent delivery, similar booths have been
delivered to the U.S. Mexican border.
This booth is situated inside a large enclosure where trucks and other vehicles
can be inspected thoroughly despite grueling weather. The bi-level booth is
unique: it facilitates ground level, visual inspection of vehicles, and gives
guards access to upper portions of commercial trucks and containers via an
interior stairway leading to an elevated section. Thus, security personnel have
a truly a ‘top-down’ perspective – a distinct advantage.
When it comes to border security, guard booths and vehicle inspection strategies
are a first line of defense. Security personnel, including agents from DHS and
CBP, need facilities that allow them to function effectively in harsh climatic
conditions, while giving them a physical advantage over potential threats. These
security structures and control centers must be fabricated from the best
materials, and incorporate correctly-sized HVAC systems for adequate climate
management. These booths must be configuration-friendly as they must house
monitors, duress buttons, communication and surveillance equipment.
The B.I.G. bi-level units are fully-fabricated and ready to install, they have a
high level of ballistics resistance, high-output roof-mounted HVAC systems,
backup heat, and heated floor mats for severe winter weather. They also contain
an extensive electrical infrastructure. The conduits, junction boxes, and other
components support a flexible array of alarm, camera and communication
equipment. Pre-wiring makes installation a snap. Punishing environmental
conditions are no match for these innovative, bi-level booths.
B.I.G. Enterprises is pleased to add the bi-level, extreme weather booth to its
fabrication arsenal. B.I.G. guard shelters meet the exacting demands of
regulatory agencies, security directors, and facilities managers.
