There are only two moving parts to a guard booth; sliding doors and transactional windows. Some manufacturers use a traditional system that proves inadequate for long term use. Our system uses steel tracks, four steel ball bearing wheels, and the highest quality products available to take on the continuous use and abuse that doors and windows must endure.
All booth building units have a steel window frame system with flush-mounted corners and welded fastening. Each unit will have fixed windows on all sides, and all windows will be glazed with 1/4″ tinted tempered glass.
Exterior painted galvanized steel window frames are architecturally superior to aluminum, more durable, and offer easier glass replacement. Most states with energy codes will require the units to have ¾” minimum tempered dual pane insulated glass with Low-E coating. We recommend every exterior installation have this glass for better heating\cooling gain or loss.
Booth building will feature a heavy-duty steel framed sliding door constructed of steel tube frames and insulated 16 gauge galvanized steel panels. The door will be hung by a minimum of eight 2 1/4″ steel ball bearing rollers in a steel upper track with a lower stainless steel guide. Doors will also feature stainless steel pull handles welded to the frame and mortise hook bolt lock.
Steel doors are more durable and standard for all security guard booth specs. B.I.G. is the exclusive provider of the rigid steel ball-bearing roller system with welded stainless steel pull handles and stainless steel lower guide. Our doors are more aesthetically pleasing and offer years of maintenance use.
