Modular Security Systems Inc, MSSI, MAC Portal, Perimeter security, turnstiles

Modular Security Systems Incorporated (MSSI), is leading the way to a more secure world, one or two turnstiles at a time.  The latest invention to enter the MSSI product line is the portable Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portal and the modular guard booths. After receiving an official patent in the United States and Canada for the Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal that restricts the flow of "foot traffic" to a site the next step for the MSSI design team was to come up with a deliverable system for vehicle access as well.  The VAC Portal much like the MAC Portal begins life as a standard ISO shipping container, made of 16 gauge COR-TEN weathering steel, built to hold sixty-seven thousand pounds and be stacked nine containers high.  But these containers aren’t built specifically for MSSI; they’re built to be packed full of TVs, Blu-Ray players, or whatever else is being shipped to the US.  After being unloaded of its goods, the containers are usually stacked in a port and left unused as it is cheaper to simply build new containers as opposed to sending empty ones back around the world.
