Patented MAC Portal, Patent for Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal

It's Official, The Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal is Patented

Modular Security Systems Inc. is more than pleased to announce that as of July 27, 2010 the Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal has been Patented through the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Over the past couple of years Modular Security Systems Inc. has reported on the various stages of the patent process and we are excited to announce that the Official Patent (Patent No. US 7,762,025) has been received at MSSI headquarters and will soon be framed for display in recognition of the occasion. 

MSSI Owner, Robert Slagel stated, "I'd like to reiterate what I've said in the past and that is that we want to ensure our past and future customers that this patent will not impact our product pricing, product quality, or customer service. We have and will continue to be the low cost solution by providing portable containerized turnstile security systems using both full height and half height turnstiles."


As previously reported the patent for the Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal is not turnstile type specific and does not require MSSI to incorporate only full-height turnstiles into its modular guardhouse but rather any type of a barrier device including half-height turnstiles and other types of barrier devices. MSSI would like to use its patent to enable it to team up with distributors interested in providing these containerized portable guard shacks with access control turnstiles in a cross marketing effort of the MAC security portal.
