As anyone who has had any experience with the patent application process would tell you it is a worthwhile venture that can bring tremendous benefits to a company with intellectual property. Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) has patent applications on file and the patent process is underway in the United States. MSSI has already received an official patent for the Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal outside of the United States and MSSI is optimistic that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will grant it patents in the near future. 

MSSI's patent applications cover a Containerized Access Control System. David Slagel, Co-Owner of MSSI stated, "We want to ensure our customers that the pending patent will not impact our product pricing, product quality, or customer service. We remain committed to being the low cost solution by providing portable containerized turnstile security systems using both full height and half height turnstiles."

The patent applications are not turnstile type specific, meaning the patent applications have claims which cover any type of a barrier device including half-height turnstiles and other types of barrier devices. MSSI has been well pleased with the performance of all makes and models of barrier devices that it has installed thus far in its manufacturing of the MAC Security Portal.
