Perimeter security on construction sites whether they are residential, commercial, or industrial projects is a primary concern for customers of Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI). Theft of tools and machinery, such as front-end loaders and dozers, can cost hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars a year. The result of losing large machinery and tools can be the loss of a whole day and sometimes multiple days of work on time sensitive projects. On top of lost work time, the contractor has to cover the cost of replacing materials and tools, filing an insurance claim for each theft, and procuring new equipment. Between the unexpected insurance claim filing and lost work time project hours and money are forever lost.
It only takes one or two significant loss events in the life of a project for a contractor to experience a major loss in profitability and time. For many sites the solution has become a ridged fence line and Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal with full height turnstiles and access control technology. Any project manager knows that when it comes to lost time and money the theft of smaller tools as well as time and attendance adds up. By securing the perimeter of a construction site with a Patented MAC Portal project management knows they have a climate controlled guard office for security personnel and an access control system with time and attendance tracking all in one.
