MSSI Encourages Recycling and Sustainability by ReInventing the Box

Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) located in Worthington, Kentucky is doing its part to encourage recycling and sustainability by ReInventing the Box. At MSSI we re-use or recycle "one-trip" shipping containers that have completed their first use in bringing imports into the U.S.  Once the cargo from these containers is unloaded, they are often stored in shipyards around the U.S. where they sit unused. Because of the U.S. trade deficit, it is estimated that about 7 million shipping containers enter U.S. ports every year, and only about half of those containers are reused to ship exports out of the country. MSSI takes full advantage of the abundance of these one-trip containers by modifying them into our patented Modular Access Control (MAC) and Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portals.

These portable perimeter security solutions are then used on industrial and commercial construction sites to secure the perimeter and control employee/visitor access to these secure work sites. These recycled shipping containers are built with turnstiles, vehicle barrier gates, climate-controlled guardhouses, and access control technology that will allow only authorized workers to enter the secure site. 

Our perimeter security solutions like the patented MAC Portal and VAC Portal can be integrated with a wide range of access control technologies that may be tied into existing access control infrastructure or act as a standalone unit. 

Our recycling of these shipping containers is environmentally friendly and is a great example of how an otherwise wasted resource can be re-used. The recycled or reinvented boxes have proven to be far more durable and stronger than other stick-built structures that are typically used in conventional construction for construction site security.

Turn-key and easily put in use, the portable perimeter security solutions from Modular Security Systems Inc. have been used by major industrial and commercial construction companies like Fluor, Bechtel, Jacobs, Turner Construction, AECOM, Kiewit, Whiting-Turner, Skanska, and CB&I.
