Sleek security booths at Sony's Culver City studio complex make a high-tech, high-style design statement.
Los Angeles, CA – June 2013 – Working in tandem with the architects and facilities directors at Sony Pictures, B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. (www.bigbooth.com) created a range of custom guard booths that greet all comers. With exterior details reminiscent of the classic movie houses of yesteryear, the tailor-made features developed in this design were so numerous that Sony's facilities directors selected the fabrication experts at B.I.G. to bring the designs to life. They knew that B.I.G. had the expertise to manufacture the booths to meet their exacting requirements.
From the stainless steel fascia with radius corners and detailed reveals, to the stainless steel window muntins, butt-glazed Solarban-60 insulated glass, scalloped upper fascia details and stainless steel sliding doors-these booths make the bold architectural statement a major entertainment powerhouse like Sony demands.
“Because we are experts at bringing the visions of architects, engineers, and designers to life, we knew we were the only booth company that could meet Sony's exacting standards and we were pleased to create this unusual and inventive design." said Vice President David King.
Additional features include: LED lighting, custom steel cabinets and laminate shelving, storage drawers with slide-out keyboard trays, roof mounted low-profile HVAC, industrial flooring, and wiring runs for data, communications, gate controls, cameras and other security devices. The unit has an Energy Star rated three-part roof membrane, and the finish is high-gloss polyurethane over a two-part epoxy primer.
