These customizable, portable perimeter security solutions are turn-key and can be delivered with a wide range of site- and customer-specific options. Regardless of the size of your project or the security requirements your job requires, Modular Security Systems Inc. and the Patented MAC Portal will work with you to provide the perimeter security solution you need to get the job done. We deliver fence-line-ready solutions for any major industrial or commercial construction project – big or small, near or far. MAC Portals are available complete with climate-controlled guard offices, full-height turnstiles, and access control technology.

In this week’s edition of the Turnstile Blog we're going to take a look at two very different patented MAC Portals that illustrate both the big and small, near and far.

Pictured above is a patented MAC Portal with four full-height security turnstiles and a climate-controlled guard office that is currently being used at the AEP Big Sandy Power Plant just down the river from us in Louisa, Kentucky. This MAC-4 (MAC Portal with four turnstiles) will be in use throughout a 12-month project to convert the coal-fired Big Sandy plant to natural gas. This MAC-4 is just one of the many products that MSSI and sister companies Portable Solutions Group, Johnny on the Spot, Storage on the Spot, and DropBox Inc. have onsite. In addition to this unit there are also Sanitation Stations, DropOffices, portable toilets, and storage containers on this particular job site. This photo was taken by PSGs' own Robert Slagel, President/Owner/CEO, while visiting the site for a meeting with construction managers and plant representatives earlier this week.

Pictured here on the right is a patented MAC Portal without a guard office that is being used in New WadesPortalPic_003.jpgYork City. This MAC-3 (MAC Portal with three full-height turnstile) is being used to secure the perimeter of the World Trade Center/Freedom Tower site where construction is still underway, reconstructing multiple buildings in the area.  In addition to this MAC-3, MSSI has had one other MAC-3 (MAC Portal with three turnstiles) and six MAC-1 units on various projects related to the reconstruction of the site after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. This photo is courtesy of W. Coffey, a local high-school student who was visiting New York on a site-seeing trip and tour of "the Big Apple.” Mr. Coffey sent us the photo after recognizing it as a product made in his hometown. Thanks for the photo, Sir!
