Modular Security Systems Inc.(MSSI) and the Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal have been securing the perimeter of many a major construction project for industrial and commercial construction companies since 2005. 

In October 2008 MSSI announced that it had received a formal notice of allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its’ intellectual property application for the now Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. Six years later, this October 2014 MSSI is excited to announce that another patent has been awarded for the MAC Portal in the European Union. With 28 countries under the EU banner MSSI and its’ staff is more than pleased to make this announcement.

In addition to this and the U.S. Patent the company has also previously been awarded patents in Canada, Nigeria, Algeria, and Egypt.

Working with turnstile manufacturers like Boon Edam, Alvarado turnstiles, and access control companies like Convergint and Xentry, MSSI and the MAC Portal have been able to secure both industrial and commercial construction projects all around the world. Most notably the construction project of the Freedom Tower in New York City was secured using Patented MAC Portals from MSSI. Located at Ground Zero where the World Trade Center stood before the attacks on September 11, 2001 this is to date the most high profile commercial construction site the company has had the pleasure of securing.

MSSI plans to use the issuance of the European Union Patent to partner with trusted names in the turnstile and access control industries in all of the 28 countries in the EU. By partnering with a local presence in Europe MSSI hopes to emulate and exceed the success the company has already had in the U.S. and Canada.  Over a few short years the Patented MAC Portal has generated over 50 million dollars in sales for MSSI in the US.

Robert Slagel, President and Owner of Portable Solutions Group (Parent Company to MSSI), stated that “We are eager to find a company or companies in the EU that want to license our patent and sell MAC Portals all around Europe. We feel that our patent in Europe combined with native companies distributing our patented product will only help to bolster sales worldwide. We are very excited about this EU patent announcement and what it means for the future of our company.”
