Innovative ticket booth fabricated for San Francisco Bay cruise destination is exceptionally suited for harsh marine environment
Los Angeles, CA – May 24, 2012 – Working with marina designers and architects, B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. (www.bigbooth.com) introduced The Hornblower, a B.I.G custom-fabricated design. Passengers queued up for cruise tickets at this top tourist destination are welcomed by the charming, tri-color booth that embodies Bay area style, and signifies a gateway to adventure.
But the design-savvy exterior incorporates specialized components such as integrated roll-down shutters, high-quality transaction windows, and a multi-step exterior finish that makes the booth uncommonly well-matched for punishing climates. B.I.G. fabricators are experts in the manufacture of security shelters and revenue control booths for extreme environments, and they’re known for their design flexibility.
The Hornblower is built tough to sustain constant use and withstand San Francisco Bay weather conditions, where rain, fog, and salt spray can exact a toll on waterfront structures. The ticket booth is weather tight, and features B.I.G’s proprietary paint system: a unique surface prep process, a two-part epoxy primer, and custom-color, two-component polyurethane coating. The superior finish resists chemicals, impact, abrasion, and fading from UV exposure. The attractive standing seam roof incorporates a heat protective membrane.
The Hornblower comes complete with a high-output commercial HVAC, storage units, stainless steel shelves, and full wiring for security cameras, and data/communications electronics. B.I.G. designs are ADA compliant.
Like all B.I.G. booths, The Hornblower is delivered fully prefabricated and ready for installation. Originally intended to serve as a ticket booth, The Hornblower can be modified to serve any number of facilities or applications.
