Modular Security Systems Inc. just recently completed construction on three of these custom Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals with waist high or "half height" turnstiles. These MAC-2 waist high turnstile units will be used at major events at the Daytona Speedway in Daytona, Florida. Without the need to provide "high" security most associated with full height turnstiles the folks at the Daytona Speedway opted for these waist high turnstiles to be installed in these patented MAC Portals. Combined with the portability of MAC Portals and the ticket reading capabilities of waist high turnstiles these units made complete sense for security professionals at the site.
For obvious security reasons both full height and half height turnstiles have their own specific place in the world of perimeter security and access control. Both types of turnstiles make sense for different locations based on their site specific needs but both come delivered, "plug and play" ready to be dropped in a fence line and start regulating access control to your location.
Like all Patented MAC Portals from MSSI these "half height" or "waist high" models are fully customizable and can be built to meet customers on site needs.
