Portable Turn-Key Guard Houses with Vehicle Gates

When it comes to vehicle gates and perimeter security there's no such thing as a one size fits all product. A solution that works at one location might not necessarily work at another. For that very reason, Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) has established a customer concerns-based engineering and design team. We not only develop standard products, but also custom perimeter security solutions. Keeping the customer’s concerns in mind, MSSI and our engineering and design team work directly with our customers to develop the perfect solution to meet their site-specific needs. 

In response to our customers’ vehicle control needs MSSI has developed the patented Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portal. Our patented VAC Portals were designed with three core security features in mind: vehicle access control, turn-key installation, and portability. With the ability to be custom built with or without guard offices, the VAC Portal can be moved from one location to another as needed throughout the life of the unit. 

For a little over a decade, MSSI has built these portable turn-key guard houses with vehicle gates ranging in a number of different sizes. Customers in the past have opted for climate-controlled guard houses from 4' (width) x 6' (length) up to 8' (width) x 40' (length), or even no guard office at all. Some customers in hotter climates have even chosen to go with solar energy as their power source for their patented VAC Portal. The strength, flexibility of custom options, and ease of installation make our patented VAC Portals a vital component of your sites overall perimeter security solutions. The use of the patented VAC Portal can drastically improve on-site perimeter security capabilities.

By adding a patented VAC Portal in the roadway of a site entrance, you can rest assured that your site can be secure. For more information on Modular Security Systems Inc., our Patented Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portal, and all of our Portable Perimeter Security Solutions CONTACT US HERE or call us at 740.532.7822.

Massive Modular Guard Office with Turnstiles for the Denver Airport

Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) is nearing the completion of one of the largest patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals in company history. Since the introduction of the first four-turnstile MAC Portal we built in 2004, MSSI has developed a standard line of Modular Access Control Portals ranging from 1 to 10 turnstile lanes in a single unit. Like all the perimeter security solutions we offer the evolution of our products are dictated by the site-specific needs of our customers. Based on the needs of our customers, we continue to grow our product line. A great example of that is our V-Series Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. A little over a decade ago MSSI began building the V-Series MAC Portal (the "V" stands for vestibule). 

The patented V-Series MAC Portal combines multiple shipping container modifications with turnstiles and access control into one larger unit. It’s a combination of a Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal with full-height turnstiles and integrated customer-specified access control technology. The vestibule in the V-Series provides employees, workers, and visitors a space to get out of the weather as they make their way through the MAC Portal.

The V-Series, like this nearly complete unit, is for customers who want something with a little more space for their perimeter security solution. Built from four 12' wide 45' long modules, this V-Series has eight turnstile lanes, a non-secure vestibule, a secure vestibule, a security office, and a private office space. Completely insulated and climate-controlled, this massive four-container security solution will soon be transported and assembled at the Denver Airport in Colorado.

MSSI is an Ohio-based intellectual properties holding company with expertise in designing and manufacturing unique perimeter security solutions to address ever-changing worldwide security issues. MSSI sales and core market segments include worldwide ports, worldwide refineries and petrochemical plants, military installations, global industrial contractors, mass transit, and large public events.

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.

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. 

More information on the MAC Portal can be found online at www.securedbymac.com or call us now at 740.532.7822.
