About this time last year Modular Security Systems Inc. announced that it had sold it's first MAC Portal (a MAC-3, three turnstiles with a guard office) to the World Trade Center/Freedom Tower construction site in New York City. Once the MAC-3 arrived on site it was hooked up to power and put into use as an access control, entry/exit point for construction personel on this historic project. After a number of months in use the New York Port Authority agreed that the MAC Portal was the perfect solution for their access control needs and has just recently ordered a total of 7 additional MAC Portals.
This order of 7 MAC Portals will consist of one additional MAC-3 and six individual MAC-1 units (one turnstile unit without a guard booth). In addition to full height turnstiles and access card readers these units are also being integrated with a site specified iris scanning detection system. These sophisticated biometric access control systems scan the eyes of individuals wishing to enter the site to determine their identificaiton before the turnstiles spin.
