For environments that require the highest levels of security, you cannot risk implementing anything less than the highest quality security solution. From detention centers and nuclear power plants to international airports and college campuses, B.I.G. Enterprises has been engineering exceptional security products for over 45 years.
We understand the challenges that security professionals face day-to-day, which is why we’re dedicated to providing them with security booth solutions that help them perform at their best. Take a look at some of the best high-security entrance solutions that we offer for facilities of every type.
In a post-9/11 world, airports require more security that takes advantage of smart design and advanced technology. Our security stations are installed at airports around the country, including JFK, Chicago O’Hare, San Francisco, and Logan International.
Our Officers Station is a high-security entrance booth that goes above and beyond to meet the needs of airport security personnel, with features that help these units blend into their environments and provide comfort so officers perform at the best.
Developed in consult with law enforcement officials, architects, and contractors, this station features a galvanized steel door, 1” tinted insulated type glazing with Low-E coating, and custom roll down shades. A galvanized steel floor and formed grid provide rugged security, while rubber tile makes standing for long shifts more comfortable and acoustic drop-down ceilings block out loud air traffic noise. A wall-mounted HVAC and exterior infrared heaters recessed above the door ensure all-weather comfort for officers working long days and nights.
For colleges, universities, and high schools, the safety of students, faculty, and guests is paramount. The unfortunate reality of escalating violent crime on college campuses, including campus shootings, demands an effective and affordable response. Furthermore, a high-security entrance booth that protects staff and students demonstrates your commitment to being a leader in campus safety and security.
Our Campus Protector booth is designed specifically for these locations to offer the ultimate security solution without obstructing the aesthetic beauty of the surrounding environment. Featuring insulated walls and roof, with dual-pane insulating glass and a galvanized steel floor, this offers security staff the protection they need and the comfort they deserve. Fully pre-wired, this unit can be delivered ready to plug-in – and can be finished on-site to ensure that the details match the style of the surrounding campus.
This booth is ADA-compliant and can easily be outfitted with additional data or telephone connections, interior shelving, cabinetry, and drawers, energy-efficient lighting, and HVAC systems.
For the New Beginnings Gatehouse in Washington, DC, our team worked with Bell Architects to construct a high-security entrance booth for the State of Maryland youth detention center that “reflected” more of the natural environment.
The youth detention center required a security booth that presented a more positive image for friends and family visiting young people at the center. At the same time, the booth needed to be extremely secure. This unique challenge necessitated a unique solution for their high-security entrance.
To achieve this, our team utilized tinted and laminated dual-pane insulating glass exterior panels that reflect the surrounding area. Behind this opaque glass is a structural steel framing with R-17 insulated galvanized steel walls. This design reduced the appearance of a ‘high-security’ facility; rather, the unit blended into the natural surroundings.
While your situation may not require mirrored exterior walls to help the booth disappear into its environment, it’s a great example of our ability to truly customize the project based on your needs.
