Securing Construction Projects Around the World with the VAC Portal

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 come 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. 

Built from steel based structure the VAC Portal like all of our security products are designed to be easily transported and can be lifted by forklifts that are more often than found already onsite at its' destination. Complete with forklift pockets for easy loading and offloading the VAC Portal can be placed on concrete, asphalt or hard packed gravel.

Delivered turn-key to your construction site, the vehicle access control solutions we offer can come with your preferred access control technology and can be tied into an existing system or act as a stand alone unit.

MSSI: The Importance of Perimeter Security & Vehicle Gates

Posted on Sat, Dec 22, 2018

MSSI: The Importance of Perimeter Security & Vehicle Gates

There is a growing importance for vehicle gates and perimeter security on commercial and industrial construction sites around the world. Every year construction projects lose millions of dollars in equipment and tools to theft and unauthorized individuals making their way onto job sites. 

Security gates have an essential role to play on both industrial and commercial construction projects. The purpose of a vehicle access control gate is to provide assurances that only authorized individuals can physically access construction sites that have countless amounts of tools and equipment readily available. In the majority of applicable construction settings, industrial quality gates can be placed at the entrance, where access is granted only to authorized vehicles.

Depending on the size of the construction site there may also be a need for additional gates and additional entrances, some that may be specific to deliveries of building materials. An example could be an entrance for authorized workers or management with vehicle access permissions and another for larger trucks, cranes, or heavy equipment. 

Due to the flexibility of design the Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portals like those offered by MSSI can be used for both the entrance for smaller trucks as well as larger trucks and equipment. Our patented VAC Portal was designed with three major elements in mind: vehicle access control, turn-key installation, and portability to be moved from jobsite to jobsite as needed throughout the life of the unit. The turn-key aspect and portability make it the perfect solution for commercial and industrial construction projects. 

Our VAC Portals have been used at commercial construction projects, military installations, mines, power plants, and other industrial construction plants.

MSSI & the Patented Turnstile in a Shipping Container

Posted on Tue, Dec 11, 2018

 turnstile security in a container, turnstiles in a shipping container, turnstiles in a container, MSSI, Modular Security Systems Inc

In 2004 Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) imagined the combination of access control technology, turnstiles, and the portability of a shipping container and used that imagination to create the now patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. In late 2008 MSSI received a Notice of Allowance by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the invention and has since received patents for the MAC Portal in The U.S., Canada, the European Union and a handful of other countries around the world.

The Patented MAC Portal was created by incorporating full-height turnstiles into a shipping container with portable access control technologies like card readers, biometric readers, RFID cards and can be a standalone access control system or be tied directly into an existing plant-wide access control system.

While the patented MAC Portal is the most convenient and effective access control solution available, not all projects are the same. And that is why MSSI offers a wide range of standard floor plans, custom designs, and two procurement options. The decision to purchase or rent a MAC Portal can be influenced by many different factors like length of the project, a company’s capital budget, depreciation vs. expense, etc. Regardless of your company’s financial situation, MSSI has the MAC Portal and procurement options to secure your site. 

Over the past decade semi trucks with flatbed trailers and roll-off trailers alike have made their way in and out of MSSI’s Worthington, KY, manufacturing facility to deliver our patented MAC Portal to customers on industrial and commercial construction sites around the world. Our turnstile, access control, and shipping container modifications have been utilized to secure every type of perimeter from industrial and commercial construction sites to nuclear facilities and military installations.

MSSI: Access Control Turnstiles and the Key to Perimeter Security

MSSI: Access Control Turnstiles and the Key to Perimeter Security

There are a number of different ways and solutions to controlling access to your construction sites. Regardless of whether you have an industrial or a commercial construction site, you can enforce access control through the use of security personnel or with a physical device like a fence and a turnstile with access control technology. Fences act as a physical barrier, whereas the turnstile with access control is there to allow authorized individuals onto the site while preventing unauthorized individuals from entering at the same time. While physical access control can be achieved by having a guard physically onsite at all times, the turnstile with access control can provide almost the same level of security without having to provide space for a guard to perform their duties. 

When it comes to physical security and access control it's all about who, where, and when an individual is authorized to be. An access control system with turnstiles determines who is allowed to enter or exit, where they are allowed to exit or enter, and when they are allowed to enter or exit. For the most part a turnstile with access control technology acts as a locked door that only allows entry to those with a key to said door. 

The key to a perimeter security solution that works best for you and your particular situation depends on you and your jobsite’s specifics. Our staff at Modular Security Systems Inc. has the expertise you need to discuss and work through your particular jobsite’s security requirements, and we encourage you to contact us to further discuss your concerns.

(MSSI) is a global leader in dedicated vehicle access control and foot traffic control.

MSSI: Top 5 Tips for Securing the Perimeter of Your Construction Site

MSSI: Top 5 Tips for Securing the Perimeter of Your Construction Site

Modular Security Systems Incorporated (MSSI) is leading the way to more secure industrial and commercial construction sites around the world, one turnstile and one vehicle access control gate at a time.  Our products are patented in the U.S., Canada, and the E.U. and can be delivered turn-key and ready to implement in your perimeter security plan.

Here are the top 5 tips to securing your construction site and how Modular Security Systems Inc. can help:

1) Access control - An access control system or technology that is integrated into the perimeter of your construction site not only prevents risks of theft and vandalism, but it also helps you keep track of employees’ time and attendance for payroll and time-keeping purposes. 

2) Turnstiles – Full-height, high-security turnstiles can act as a visual and physical deterrent for unauthorized individuals and help keep them from entering the perimeter of your construction site. The sight of turnstiles alone makes onlookers aware that without the proper credentials they will not be able to enter your site, while turnstiles allow authorized workers, vendors, and management to easily gain access. 

3) Fencing - Much like the turnstile, a well-protected site often incorporates fencing that prevents unwanted individuals from entering your site and establishes a secure perimeter.

4) CCTV - CCTV helps protect your perimeter, cut costs, and provide the evidence you need in the event of a perimeter breach, theft, and/or vandalism. Many businesses today incorporate a CCTV system. CCTV systems are recognized on residential, commercial, and industrial construction job sites as superbly useful in perimeter security.

5) Climate Controlled Guard Offices - Having a climate-controlled guard office for security staff to take post gives your site an added level of security and safety. In the event of an "out of the ordinary" security occurrence having a live person on guard and a place for them to do their work is often unmatched in certain circumstances.
