New Omni Enclosure from B.I.G. Enterprises combines versatility, safety and value for a variety of applications
B.I.G. Enterprises’ all steel construction and ventilation features make the Omni Enclosure ideal for storing all manner of goods including potentially hazardous materials.
Los Angeles, CA – March 13, 2017 B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. (www.bigbooth.com) has introduced a new prefabricated steel equipment enclosure that sets up faster and costs less than traditional construction of on-site enclosures—B.I.G.’s new Omni Enclosure. When ‘stick and stucco’ or ‘brick and block’ construction are too costly for equipment shelters, prefab steel delivers safety without sacrificing quality, looks and utility,
“The Omni Enclosure was designed as a high-value, multipurpose structure that can be used for a variety of applications by municipal utilities, petroleum industry refineries, test rooms, gas stations, and more,” said Vice President Dave King. “Most recently we designed and delivered a 400-square-foot unit for a County Department of Water and Power to store large batteries.”
As guard booths and enclosures are structures that are used every day, they need to be fabricated from the best materials, have exterior and interior finishes that will endure, possess the best window and door hardware available, and incorporate correctly-sized HVAC systems to maximize energy efficiency.
The unit was engineered to be fully capable of meeting all load requirements – even without the floor structure, as may be the case when mounting directly to a concrete base. The Omni Enclosure is made of all structural steel, with R-19 insulated, 16-gauge galvanized steel walls, and an R-30 insulated roof. The doors are also R-19 insulated, swing type with full-height, stainless steel hinge, all tamper-proof fasteners, panic bar, stainless steel lever handle and hydraulic closer.
Additional features of the Omni Enclosure include LED lighting, emergency exit lighting with battery backup, exterior metal halide lights, GFCI outlets in various areas inside and out, prewired breaker panel, commercial roof-mounted two-ton HVAC, and the entire unit was finished with a high-solids polyurethane paint over two-part primer that boasts a salt spray test in excess of 3,500 hours.
Due to the potential buildup of hazardous gasses (from batteries, etc.), a roof mounted U-Blast ventilator was installed with a backdraft damper and interior ceiling wire guard. Two wall-mounted air make-up louvers were added as well, each with motorized dampers, disposable pleated air filters and exterior bird screen.
B.I.G. booths, shelters, and its new Omni Enclosure are tough, innovative, and enduring. They are easy to install, and are significantly sound. They provide a platform for creativity, security, and maximum flexibility.
