MSSI Sees Increase in Interest from Commercial Construction Sites

Having provided Modular Access Control (MAC) portals to over five hundred locations in the U.S. within 10 years of its inception, it seemed like only a matter of time before the rest of the world caught on. In recent years, MSSI has delivered more than one hundred patented MAC Portals outside the U.S. in places like Canada, to secure the oil sands in places like Iraq and Kuwait, to aid in the security of our troops overseas, and more recently in the Republic of Kazakhstan to protect and secure oil refining.

Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) has recently received an increase in calls and a significant uptick in internet traffic from potential customers for commercial construction in both the U.S. and abroad. 

The patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal is a prefabricated, climate-controlled guardhouse with turnstiles and access control, and it’s making a big impact. During the past five or six decades, the prefabricated buildings have been used as guard booths and guardhouses at major industrial plants and on commercial construction sites around the world. 

Though the guardhouse isn’t a new product, the containerized MAC Portal with access control and turnstiles is a new invention and becoming a staple on construction sites for both industrial and commercial construction projects. 

Having already proven its functionality as a tool for improving security perimeters for major contractors around the globe including Flour, Jacobs, KBR, and Bechtel at both refineries and coal-fired power plants, MSSI is encouraged by the great responses that it receives from commercial construction project managers in places like Montreal, New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco.

“Given the success and approval by those onsite at major commercial construction projects in some of the biggest cities in the U.S., we are very excited about the product’s potential going forward. Traditionally, we have been hugely successful in the industrial construction world, but industrial construction only accounts for about 20% of the major construction projects in the U.S. This uptick in interest and positive responses from commercial construction contractors bodes well for MSSI and the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal” stated Robert Slagel, President and owner of MSSI.

“We encourage owners, construction managers, and security professionals in the commercial construction community to visit our website at and learn more about our products.” added Mr. Slagel.
