The Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal Rental Program

The flexibility of the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal to incorporate site-specific requirements and access control software integration has helped make it the most trusted portable perimeter security solution for construction companies across the US and around the world. Today construction sites around the world have taken the initiative to guarantee successful projects by protecting the assets onsite through effective perimeter security.

The patented 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. 

While typically patented MAC Portals have been sold directly to end users, the MAC Portal rental program has taken shape and come to the rescue of major construction companies in need of site security when they don’t have the capital to make purchases.  

By partnering with a wide range of turnstile and access control manufacturers, MSSI and the patented MAC Portal have become significantly more flexible in terms of design and implementation for our customers. Coupling that with the creation of a standard fleet of MAC Portal rental units ranging in sizes from one turnstile lane up to six turnstile lanes has significantly increased the use of MAC Portals on commercial construction sites. We take our commercial construction customers’ specifications in mind, implement them into the design process, and make the entire rental process as simple as possible, and our portable perimeter security solutions can be found in almost every major city in the US.

Turnstiles & Access Control Technology in a Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal
 
Full height turnstiles like those in our patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal have been used for a wide range of purposes for decades. Many perimeter security installations on construction sites use turnstiles and are often built into permanent structures. Requiring expensive construction, long timelines, and limited feasibility because they need to be built and are often torn down after a project ends. What separates Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) from the competition is the portability of our MAC Portals, their turn-key installation, and the lack of need for construction on site.
 
Once onsite, installation is a cinch! Depending on the site and specifications, the patented MAC Portal can be dropped into a fence line, connected to the electric, and the MAC is fully operational. The portability and ease of installation make the patented MAC Portal the perfect solution for industrial and commercial construction sites in the US and around the world. 
 
A major benefit of having a MAC Portal delivered to your site is the lead time. The MAC Portal can be delivered within 6-8 weeks from receipt of a purchase order. Built fully integrated with any type of site-specified access control technology these portable perimeter security solutions with turnstiles offer the perfect solution for both temporary and permanent installations.

Construction site security is one of the biggest concerns in the construction industry. Construction site theft costs the industry billions of dollars each year. To make sure your site is secure there are multiple levels of protection that you can put into action to improve the security of your construction sites. Perimeter security solutions like those provided by MSSI can be used to prevent intruders and criminals from accessing the perimeter of your construction sites.

It is important on any construction project to keep your area well lit, put up a perimeter fence, and invest in gates with access control turnstiles and climate-controlled guard offices as needed. Gates with turnstiles and access control technology can act as a physical barrier that allows authorized workers through with ease, while visually and physically deterring intruders. 

When construction companies want to go one step further and up their site security game they turn to Modular Security Systems Inc. and the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. The patented MAC Portal can be more effective than simply putting a guard at the entrance to your construction project. 

Depending on your overall site security needs, MSSI can provide climate-controlled guard offices, containerized turnstile solutions, and access control products to prevent perimeter intrusion and enhance detection capabilities. The perimeter security solutions we provide are portable, turn-key, and can easily be delivered and installed in a fraction of the time of traditional stick-built structures.

MSSI, the Patented MAC Portal, and Alvarado Turnstiles 

It is common for companies like Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) to team up with or cross market with companies such as Alvarado turnstiles when those companies offer complementary, noncompeting products to the same or similar customer bases. Throughout the company’s history and the manufacturing of the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal MSSI has used and continues to use a wide range of turnstiles from several turnstile manufacturers. Recently MSSI has come to use more and more Alvarado turnstiles based on customer requests both in the US and abroad.

As a U.S. based company for over 60 years, Alvarado has grown into North America’s leading full height turnstile manufacturer. With thousands of installations worldwide, Alvarado’s customers include governmental organizations and many of the world’s largest and best-known companies. “One of the key reasons for Alvarado’s success over the years is building strong relationships with companies like MSSI”, said Nick Simon, National Security Sales Manager for Alvarado. “Incorporating Alvarado into the MSSI solution opens up a new market for us. We’re now able to offer a unique and flexible solution to customers looking for a plug-and-play type option”, said Simon.      

Rob Slagel, President/CEO of Portable Solutions Group, parent company of MSSI says, "Over the past few years we have enjoyed cross marketing opportunities with turnstile manufacturers like Alvarado and others and we look forward to future success in developing relationships with them and access control technology providers. Another thing that has drawn us to partner with Alvarado in these initiatives is that they like us are an American company and manufacture their products right here in the USA."

MSSI meets and exceeds customers’ expectations by providing a fine line of standard and customizable perimeter security solutions.

MSSI & the MAC Lite Provide Easy Compliance for NYC Local Law 196

Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) has recently received an influx of calls and web traffic from customers in New York and New Jersey that are interested in making sure they are compliant with Local Law 196. This new regulation requires that all construction projects and contractors meet specific safety and security requirements. The portability of the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal allows these customers to rapidly come into compliance with this new OSHA regulation. Through the use of turnstiles and access control technology that tracks users training certifications, contractors in New York can guarantee that all workers onsite are up-to-date with their safety training. Perimeter security for commercial construction sites in major cities like New York is evolving, and to meet the demands of those changing needs, MSSI has introduced a new line of Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals.

The all new MAC-Lite version of the MAC Portal was created specifically for commercial construction projects where foot-print, weight, and delivery of a standard MAC Portal may not be possible. Many commercial construction projects often take place in inner-cities and more urban environments where space constraints call for a smaller, more compact version of our patented MAC Portal with full-height, high-security turnstiles, and access control integration.

Complete with either one or two turnstile lanes, access control technology and a slimmed-down, lightweight design, the new MAC-Lite is already making waves in the commercial construction industry. The new MAC-Lite has already saved many commercial construction projects time and money, and has kept them in compliance with regulations like NYC Local Law 196.

The Patented MAC Portal Helps Contractors Comply with Local Law 196
 
 
Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) has recently been barraged with calls and internet traffic from customers in New York City regarding an easy solution to make sure they are in compliance with Local Law 196. The law requires that all workers on construction sites receive 40 hours of safety training, and supervisors receive 62 hours of safety training before they are authorized to work on a site.
 
Contractors that do not comply with the law can be penalized $5,000 per untrained worker and can get hit with a $2500 fine if they do not keep a log or track the safety training of their employees. Contractors that have been found non-compliant are also subject to future, unannounced inspections. 

 

The prefabricated building used as a guard booth or guard house is no new product and having been in use for the past 50-plus years, is fairly ubiquitous throughout construction plant sites across the US and around the world. Though the guardhouse is no new invention, the prefabricated building guard house including access control turnstiles [the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal] is becoming a staple on construction sites.

The patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal integrated with access control technology helps contractors in New York and around the world by making sure that only workers with up-to-date safety training are granted access to a secure construction site. Any time an employee completes a required safety training, that information can be recorded and added to their individual credentials. With the click of a mouse and the right MAC Portal with the right access control technology infrastructure, contractors can assure that only employees who are properly trained can enter the site. 

Rob Slagel,  President of Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) has this to say about the new invention, “Our MAC Portals including turnstiles integrated with access control technology revolutionized perimeter security on construction sites. The MAC Portal makes it easy for contractors in NYC to get a turn-key portable security solution that makes it easy for them to make sure they are in compliance with Local Law 196.”

MSSI is at the forefront of portable perimeter security solutions and has helped contractors around the world comply with a number of rules, regulations, and laws.
