In looking at different toll booths, there are a number of factors to consider. As the name indicates, a toll booth is an outside structure that drivers pass through to pay a toll for crossing a road or bridge.
In cases when a toll booth is physically manned, both the design and amenities are important. Whether an individual operates a booth for four or eight hours, having a comfortable and accommodating place to work is one consideration. In particular, if a booth is located a good distance from other facilities, a restroom is essential.
A toll booth can be designed to include air conditioning and heating, special floor mats that make standing easier and less stressful on the feet, shelving and cabinetry, and in certain situations, it can come close to being bulletproofed, but there exist different levels of bullet resistance.
Another consideration is the design aesthetics. Oftentimes, a toll booth has a simple design, but it can be enhanced. If a booth is located within close proximity to your business, you might consider architectural elements that create a cohesive look. You can also choose complementary colors or color combinations.
One company, B.I.G. Enterprises, is known for designing and developing some of the most unique yet functional booths available. As a result, you have multiple choices, including exterior material, insulated walls, special glass, and much more. Although cost is important, your decision comes down to two basic things: the comfort and safety of the booth operator and the booth’s functionality.
Something else that you need to think about is whether you want the toll booth customized. Toll booths can be outfitted with a wide variety of enhancements. As an example, your booth can have a warming system installed for the melting of snow and ice. Additional customized features include outside lighting, energy efficient and tinted windows, pull down or motorized window shades, and the list goes on.
