Turnstiles are used at a wide variety of settings to allow only one person at a time to pass into an area. Now B.I.G. Enterprises (http://www.bigbooth.com) announces the creation of a Portable Guard Booth w/Turnstile unit to provide secure access when and where you need it.

From a business/revenue standpoint, turnstiles give an accurate, verifiable count of attendance. From a security standpoint, they lead patrons to enter single-file, so security personnel have a clear view of each patron. This enables security to efficiently isolate potential trouble or to confiscate any prohibited materials.

From stadiums, amusement parks, mass transit stations, office lobbies, airports, ski resorts, and casinos to corporate offices and critical facilities such as data centers, chemical or nuclear power plants, you may need to control the flow of foot-traffic—but at flexible places on your property.

Recently, one of B.I.G.’s customers—a nuclear power plant needed to control construction workers as they arrived and departed each day from a highly sensitive area. Nuclear power plants and certain fuel fabrication facilities must show they can defend against a set of adversary characteristics called the Design Basis Threat (DBT). In general, the DBT outlines threats and adversary characteristics these facilities must demonstrate they can protect against. The DBT is based on realistic assessments of the tactics, techniques and procedures used by terrorist groups and organizations.

Access control and perimeter security are B.I.G.’s expertise and we can handle virtually any access control requirement with Prefabricated Guard Booths & Shelters. This unit is designed with three Turnstiles, but B.I.G. could provide the same model with fewer or greater turnstiles. Portable, this unit can be used in various areas for secured access into a facility.

The Portable Guard Booth WITH Turnstiles features full structural steel framing with insulated galvanized steel walls and roof, dual pane insulating glass, interior shelving, LED lighting, outlets and J-Boxes for data & communications, HVAC, floor and high solids polyurethane paint finish. The turnstile area is framed to accept the turnstiles and features galvanized flooring covered with polished aluminum diamond plate, recessed compact Fluorescent lights in the soffit above the turnstiles, and three factory-installed turnstiles.

“Because we are experts at perimeter security and access control, we were pleased to work with this major utility company to assist in a critical time of their expansion process. Whatever the requirement you may face, B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. has the solution." said Vice President David King.
