Limitless Access Control Options in Your Patented MAC Portal from MSSI
When it comes to industrial and commercial construction projects it takes more to protect a perimeter than simply building a tall fence with some barbed wire on the top. A well-thought-out perimeter security plan for any construction site should incorporate multiple levels of security solutions to keep a site safe and secure from intrusion. More than ever before, major construction companies are realizing the value of not just stopping theft on their projects but also taking measures to combine the efforts of security with time-keeping, and payroll capabilities in their access control solutions.

By incorporating access control technology and software into a patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal with full-height turnstiles, customers around the world are not only keeping their perimeter secure but they are also able to track employees’ safety training credentials, produce mustering reports, and maintain time-keeping and payroll functionality.

At Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) we work directly with our customers to pick out the right access control solution from a wide range of access control providers we've partnered with over the years. 

Every project and construction site has its own set of circumstances, locations, duration, and man-power needs. For that very reason, the security professionals at MSSI know that there is no "one-size-fits-all" access control solution for each of our customers.

By maintaining a working relationship with a wide range of access control technology providers, we have been able to provide RFID card readers, hand geometry readers, and other biometric security devices into our patented MAC Portals.

MSSI: Top 3 Tips to a Secure Construction Site

Posted by Miles Duncil on Wed, Jan 15, 2020

MSSI: Top 3 Tips to a Secure Construction Site

Experienced project managers and construction site supervisors know the importance of keeping a safe and secure construction site. A secure construction site perimeter can mean the difference between construction project that is completed on time and under budget verses a drawn out, over budget project that falls short of meeting its completion date. 

Construction equipment theft and loss of time due to delays costs American construction companies nearly $1 billion every year. Construction managers, planners, and project management need to work on preventing these losses at every step of the construction process, start to finish. 

In most cases, a minimal investment in perimeter security can help prevent these losses and avoid theft on the jobsite. Working with knowledgeable professionals is essential when trying to properly secure your construction projects. In this week’s edition of the Turnstile blog we'd like to take a look at the top 3 key elements required to keep your construction site secure. 

 Our Top 3 Tips for Construction Site Security:
 
1. Fences
This should be a given. Fences are the first line of defense when it comes to keeping your construction site secure from intrusion and preventing theft. A fence can provide both a physical and visual deterrent for thieves and prevent the public from accidentally wandering onto your construction site. Durable chain link fencing is not only a great idea but it's also easy to put up and tear down.
If you don’t have the time or energy to install this fencing on your own, hiring professional temporary fence installers is your best bet to a secure perimeter. They will have the expertise needed to ensure the temporary fence is installed correctly and will effectively secure your construction site.
 2. Gates for Foot & Vehicle Traffic
Now that you've got the perimeter protected with fencing, it's important to provide gates for workers and deliveries of critical tools and equipment to your construction site. Gates on construction sites can take a number of sizes, shapes, and forms. The most effective way to provide easy access for workers and deliveries to your site while also preventing access to unauthorized individuals is through the use of turnstiles, vehicle gates, and access control technologies. 

By providing turnstiles and vehicle gates with access control technology integrated into your security plan, you not only gain an added level of security in physical form, but also in visual form. Thieves and intruders are often deterred by the sight of a turnstile or vehicle gate.

3. Access Control Technology

Access control technology can provide security, time-keeping/payroll data, and be tied into existing security infrastructure or act as a stand-alone solution specific to a gate or entrance to your site. Many different types of access control technology have been developed over the past few decades. Access control solutions from as simple as magnetic card swipes, RFID readers, all the way to more complex hand geometry reader and iris scanning solutions can be used to create a secure perimeter for your construction site.

Products provided by Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) like the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal can tick two of the three boxes on the above list on any construction site.

MSSI has worked with construction companies on projects large and small around the world to successfully secure their perimeters. Complete with turnstiles, vehicle gates, climate-controlled guard offices, and the access control technology of the customer’s choosing, MSSI has provided turn-key perimeter security solutions to keep numerous construction sites safe and secure.

Access Control and Turnstiles from Modular Security Systems Inc.

Modular Access Control, Modular Security Systems, MSSI, Turnstile, Turnstiles, access control

From the beginning of time through today, there has been and will continue to be a need to limit accessibility to some places for some people. Since the 1960s, access control technology has been utilized to add or restrict entrances and to track people coming and going, and to do so in a wide range of manners. In the not-so-prehistoric early days of access control technology, a simple keypad was used to restrict certain areas. Shortly thereafter, RFID or simple magnetic swipe cards came into use.

In order to meet the needs of modern day access control and perimeter security access control, technology has evolved into tools that allow you to create many layers of protection that can adapt to any security concerns – whether you are at a bank, a military base, or a major industrial or commercial construction site. That evolution and the ever-changing security concerns give reason as to why access control technology today has been developed to allow security professionals to update and maintain their chosen security solution(s) with just a few clicks on a keyboard or with a mouse.

Using biometric access control hardware that ties into access control software, security pros can keep all of their security solutions up to date, management can revise access control lists, times and attendance for payroll purposes, and grant a wide range of authorization levels for individuals quickly and easily – within just a few seconds. 

The access control technologies that involve biometric parameters don't require someone to keep track of a card, badge or PIN number. By scanning someone’s fingerprint, hand, the veins in their hand, their eyes, or even their face using facial recognition devices, the access control technologies available use identifiers that can't easily be lost or left on the kitchen counter at the house. 

These access control technologies and software solutions can perform tasks above and beyond simply granting access of an individual into a room. They can also help track an individual’s history of activity, create alerts if a door or gate is left open, and in the case of an emergency such as a fire, unlock to allow escape. 

Not only does today's access control technology give you peace of mind knowing the harvest won't be raided by the next village over, but it's also friendly to your pocketbook and can help save security-minded folks a lot of time and money. Unlike more traditional modes of perimeter security, modern day access control technologies can not only prevent theft, but can also help track employees for time and attendance – and can be installed at a fraction of the cost of building a 10’ perimeter wall of concrete block. Access control technologies today are so easy to update and maintain that they can give customers a fantastic return on their investment.

MSSI: Access Control Turnstiles and the Key to Perimeter Security

There are a number of different ways and solutions to controlling access to your construction sites. Regardless of whether you have an industrial or a commercial construction site, you can enforce access control through the use of security personnel or with a physical device like a fence and a turnstile with access control technology. Fences act as a physical barrier, whereas the turnstile with access control is there to allow authorized individuals onto the site while preventing unauthorized individuals from entering at the same time. While physical access control can be achieved by having a guard physically onsite at all times, the turnstile with access control can provide almost the same level of security without having to provide space for a guard to perform their duties. 

When it comes to physical security and access control it's all about who, where, and when an individual is authorized to be. An access control system with turnstiles determines who is allowed to enter or exit, where they are allowed to exit or enter, and when they are allowed to enter or exit. For the most part a turnstile with access control technology acts as a locked door that only allows entry to those with a key to said door. 

The key to a perimeter security solution that works best for you and your particular situation depends on you and your jobsite’s specifics. Our staff at Modular Security Systems Inc. has the expertise you need to discuss and work through your particular jobsite’s security requirements, and we encourage you to contact us to further discuss your concerns.

MSSI: 4 Perimeter Security Solutions to Depend On

Posted by Miles Duncil on Thu, Jan 25, 2018

4 Perimeter Security Solutions to Depend On

Perimeter security is a critical component for modern industrial and commercial construction projects, and is among the most cost-effective ways to assure your construction projects are completed on time and on budget. 

Due to the highly critical nature and value of perimeter security solutions, we'd like to use this week’s Turnstile Blog to illustrate the 4 most cost-effective security solutions construction projects can depend on.

1) Fences

A fence is a simple and cost-effective way to create a visual and physical deterrent for intruders on any construction site.

2) Turnstiles

When you want to keep the wrong people out and allow the right people in, a turnstile is the best ancillary component to a perimeter security plan.

3) Vehicle Barrier Gates

Vehicle barrier gates like fences and turnstiles work as deterrents for intruders but allow easy access for deliveries and shipments to enter your jobsite.

4) Access Control Technology

Access control technology in the form of hardware and software are the perfect add-on to any perimeter security solution. Perfect for security as well as reporting and time-keeping, some access control technologies can also work with payroll functions.

According to the National Equipment Register, $300 million to $1 billion in equipment is stolen from construction sites every year in the United States alone. The cost of implementing a perimeter security solution can be easily justified by the savings, since the perimeter security solution helps prevent the loss of manhours, time, tools, and equipment on an unsecure site. 

Modular Security Systems Inc.(MSSI) is at the forefront of portable perimeter security solutions using a wide range of access control technology and shipping container modifications. For more information on MSSI and all of our access control options, CONTACT US HERE or call at 740.532.7822.
