According to the FDA thermal imaging systems that screen for body temperature have been shown to accurately measure someone's surface skin temperature and may be used to help identify potential COVID-19 infection. While an increased temperature does not indicate in and of itself a COVID-19 infection, it has been reported by the US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health to be the most commonly reported symptom in 78% of those with COVID-19. From the very beginning of the pandemic, an increased demand for added safety measures at businesses around the world has seen a significant increase. Industries across the board have added safety precautions and taken additional steps to keep their most valuable asset, their people, safe and secure. Companies around the world are looking at ways to protect what matters most: their people and their profits. 

Here to answer the call is the next big thing in thermal screening technology: the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Safe-T-Check™. Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) and our in-house team of engineers, designers, and shipping container modification specialists have worked tirelessly since the pandemic’s arrival to provide the perfect turn-key solution to keep our customers most valuable asset – their people – safe and secure in the work place. In doing so, the MAC Safe-T-Check™ was born. The concept is pretty simple: Complete with a thermal screening camera, full-height turnstile, and optional access control technology, the MAC Safe-T-Check™ can screen individuals for an elevated skin temperature from COVID-19 or another illness and prevent them from entering your site through the turnstile. If an individual’s skin temperature is in the healthy range, the turnstile will unlock and they're allowed entry. 

This combination of thermal screening technology, turnstiles, access control, and turn-key shipping container modifications is making waves across the construction industry and can be found on jobsites all around the US. 

The MAC Safe-T-Check™ was introduced during the COVID-19 global pandemic but can be used to detect for any type of communicable disease where symptoms may include an elevated skin temperature.
