Once the modular guard booth with turnstiles had been built and inspected at the manufacturing facility it was delivered to the site on three separate flatbed trailers. By using ISO shipping containers as a building block for these modular guard shacks with access control turnstiles MSSI has been able to save customers like this significant amounts of time and money.

Using ISO shipping containers as building blocks for these units makes them easily portable.  Upon reaching the site each of the three parts of the modular guard shack with access control turnstiles was offloaded and fastened back together.
