Form and Function: High-Security Tollbooth Fabricated by B.I.G. Enhances Significant Recreational Facility
Nautical-themed, bullet-resistant tollbooth design at park facility makes a harmonious architectural statement
Los Angeles, CA – June 28, 2012 – Working with facility designers and architects, B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. (www.bigbooth.com) introduced The Park Controller, a B.I.G custom-fabricated design that integrates security and bullet-resistant technologies while presenting a welcoming exterior to park visitors.
Revenue and entrance control booths are structures that are used every day. They need to be fabricated from the best materials, and be flexible enough to incorporate a variety of custom details. From an aesthetic perspective, though employed as tollbooths, they also act as visual statements that define the image of the facility, in this case, a large park adjacent to a waterway.
“The original customer wanted several bullet-resistant entrance control booths designed with a nautical theme. We love design and fabrication challenges like this, and the results are evident. This booth offers rugged security and bullet resistance hidden by a cheerful exterior,” said Vice President David King.
Finished with nautical accents, commercial steel-framed sliding transaction windows, full length stainless steel door hinges, and bullet-resistant laminated, glass-clad polycarbonate, The Park Controller is equipped with all necessary design features required to sustain high volume traffic, and it’s built tough to withstand constant use and punishing weather conditions. It comes complete with a high-output commercial HVAC, storage units, stainless steel shelves, and full wiring for security cameras, gate controls, and data/communications electronics. B.I.G. designs are ADA compliant.
Like all B.I.G. booths, The Park Controller is delivered fully prefabricated and ready for installation. Though originally designed to serve as an entrance control tollbooth, The Park Controller can be modified for additional applications such as guard shelters, check-in stations, or facility information kiosks.
