On March 17th, 2010 at about 10:19 pm, the very first patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal was delivered to New York City. In support of the Freedom Tower (One World Trade Center) construction project, the New York/New Jersey Port Authority contacted Modular Security Systems Inc. for perimeter security on what is arguably one of the most important projects in the city’s history. Following the delivery of that first patented MAC-3 (three turnstile lanes in a shipping container), MSSI and our team of perimeter security specialists delivered seven more MAC Portals to the Freedom Tower Project and has since followed with deliveries of MAC Portals to the JFK Airport, the Hudson Yards Project, and a number of other major commercial construction projects at universities, hospitals, and hotels in the city. 

Ten years later, in terms of New York City and the patented MAC Portal, things continue to look up!

The patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal is a prefabricated, climate-controlled guard office with turnstiles, optional access control technology packages, and is available for rent on your next construction project not just in New York but around the world. The patented MAC Portal has already made a huge impact for security construction professionals on industrial and commercial projects all across the U.S. and Canada. 

MSSI has developed long-running relationships with access control technology manufacturers, and more recently has established partnerships with some of the biggest names in access control in New York. Access control technology, available through partners like Trimble with their CrewSight system of automated labor tracking technology, Intelligent Biometric Controls, Inc. (IBC) and their cloud-based user management solutions, and Triax Technologies with their innovative safety Spot-R worksite management system, are just a few of the companies we work with in New York City.

By utilizing the access control technology with our network of access control partners, turnstiles, and shipping container modifications, MSSI customers all around New York City are not only keeping their perimeters secure, but they are also able to track employees’ safety training credentials, produce mustering reports, and maintain time-keeping and payroll functionality. 

Collaborating with our customers on their site-specific security needs, MSSI has been able to create a standard fleet of patented MAC Portal rental units ranging in sizes from one turnstile lane up to six turnstile lanes in a single unit. After years of working with major players in the construction industry, this standard line of MAC Portal rental units has significantly increased site security on some of the biggest commercial construction projects in New York.
