The reception enclosure is a stand alone white painted steel framing system with horizontally mounted brushed stainless steel bars at each course that supports structurally siliconed 9/16" low iron laminated translucent glazing panels on the outside faces with a back-lighting system of T5 fluorescent fixtures along with removable white painted aluminum panels including tamper proof screws on the inside wall and ceiling surfaces. Brushed stainless steel clad surfaces surround the transaction openings at both sides of the light box including the counter, ceiling panels above and the flanking diagonal panels.
