In 2004 Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) imagined the combination of access control technology, turnstiles, and the portability of a shipping container and used that imagination to create the now patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. In late 2008 MSSI received a Notice of Allowance by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the invention and has since received patents for the MAC Portal in The U.S., Canada, the European Union and a handful of other countries around the world.

The Patented MAC Portal was created by incorporating full-height turnstiles into a shipping container with portable access control technologies like card readers, biometric readers, RFID cards and can be a standalone access control system or be tied directly into an existing plant-wide access control system.

While the patented MAC Portal is the most convenient and effective access control solution available, not all projects are the same. And that is why MSSI offers a wide range of standard floor plans, custom designs, and two procurement options. The decision to purchase or rent a MAC Portal can be influenced by many different factors like length of the project, a company’s capital budget, depreciation vs. expense, etc. Regardless of your company’s financial situation, MSSI has the MAC Portal and procurement options to secure your site. 

Over the past decade semi trucks with flatbed trailers and roll-off trailers alike have made their way in and out of MSSI’s Worthington, KY, manufacturing facility to deliver our patented MAC Portal to customers on industrial and commercial construction sites around the world. Our turnstile, access control, and shipping container modifications have been utilized to secure every type of perimeter from industrial and commercial construction sites to nuclear facilities and military installations.
