Is Security on Your Construction Site a Concern?

Is Security on Your Construction Site a Concern? 

Perimeter security on construction sites is an important factor when it comes to completing projects on time and under budget. In order to be proactive and reduce theft or vandalism on jobsites, many commercial and industrial contractors look to invest in developing a jobsite security plan long before construction starts. As part of the initial planning phase of the project, budgets are often created to include perimeter security as a line item. Major contractors in the know realize that the amount of money and work it takes to implement a security plan may be minuscule compared to the losses that can result from the theft of construction equipment.

Contractors with years of experience take into account the specific security risks associated with their projects and the importance for perimeter security. Recognizing that potential problems of theft or vandalism exist on all construction sites, security-minded contractors can implement measures to reduce the risk of being targeted for construction site vandalism and theft.

Implementing a plan that includes portable perimeter security solutions like fences, lighting, and secure entry/exit points with access control technology like the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal and Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portal have proven to save time and money on construction sites all around the world.

Once onsite, installation is a cinch! Depending on the site and specifications, the patented MAC Portal can be dropped into a fence line, connected to the electric, and the MAC is fully operational. The portability and ease of installation make the patented MAC Portal the perfect solution for industrial and commercial construction sites in the US and around the world. 

A major benefit of having a MAC Portal delivered to your site is the lead time. The MAC Portal can be delivered within 6-8 weeks from receipt of a purchase order.

The Importance of Vehicle Gates in Perimeter Security for Construction Sites

The Importance of Vehicle Gates in Perimeter Security for Construction Sites 


There is an ever
-growing importance for vehicle gates in perimeter security on commercial and industrial construction sites around the world. Vehicle security gates are a fundamental component of perimeter security where access to facilities needs to be restricted. The purpose of vehicle gates is to ensure that access to specified areas is limited to authorized personnel and their vehicles only. In a broad majority of applicable locations, industrial-grade vehicle gates are placed at the entrance and access is granted only to authorized individuals vehicles – such as vehicles of management, preferred vendors, and workers.

Depending on the size or range of any given secure facility, there may also be secondary vehicle security gates inside the perimeter to further restrict access to other, more secure areas. 

Vehicle gates are common at secure facilities. Security gates are used in a wide range of industries from defense contracting, military, government installations, airports, ports, and commercial facilities. On any premises where access must be regulated beyond a certain point, the presence of a vehicle gate ensures that only authorized vehicles and people are allowed inside. 

Automatic vehicle security gates are also used in certain residential settings, including the entrances of apartment complexes and private gated communities. 

The use of vehicle gates have increased over the last few decades as security-minded individuals have come to realize the importance of not only restricting foot traffic, but also restricting the traffic of individuals in vehicles. 

Modular Security Systems Inc. has worked to secure the perimeter of ports, mines, construction projects, military installations, and government facilities around the world. From power plants in the US to pipeline construction in Kazakhstan, from the oil sands in Northwestern Canada to copper mines in the mountains of Chile, our patented perimeter security products have been utilized for a wide range of sites.

Our patented Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portals were designed with three major elements in mind: vehicle access control, turn-key installation, and portability. With the ability to be custom built with and without guard offices based on your site-specific needs, the VAC Portal can be moved from jobsite to jobsite as needed throughout the life of the unit.

With the ever-growing need for energy, many power generation facilities are going through major upgrades to improve the efficiency of their power plants. For the most part, job site security at these locations is top of mind, and extra measures are being taken to increase perimeter security systems. On-site security for major outages, new construction projects, and a wide range of various long-term projects are major concerns for many invested in the industry of power generation. 

Driven by the ever-increasing demand for more efficient clean power, many of these companies extend the size of their work force on site by up to ten times the normal daily staff. This increase of workers creates a need for an increase in job site security and time-keeping capabilities. 

Through the accuracy of the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal as a perimeter security system, many companies have found that they experience a significant drop in lost or stolen time, which the American Payroll Association estimates is 10 percent of a company’s gross income.  

Using the patented MAC Portal, many construction projects have drastically increased on-site perimeter security and timekeeping capabilities. By adding a patented MAC Portal in the fenceline of a site entrance, no one can access the now-secured area without scanning identification first and being clocked in. The patented MAC Portal can also prove very useful in emergency situations. Through the use of its time-keeping abilities, instant mustering reports can be run to give an accurate account of employees clocked into an area of concern.

Increasing the job sites perimeter security and safety the patented MAC often pays for itself on many major projects in a relatively short amount of time.
