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. 

For more information on how to keep your next construction site safe and secure and to learn more about our access control partners CONTACT US HERE or call us at 740.532.7822.

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.

Portable Perimeter Security and Access Control Technology

Portable Perimeter Security and Access Control Technology

Access control refers to the practice of restricting entry to a construction site, a building, or a room to unauthorized persons while allowing authorized individuals to pass through with some level of ease. Physical access control can be achieved by a security guard or through some form of access control. 

Physical access control all comes down to when, where, and how an authorized individual is granted entry to a specific area like a construction site or physical location. Access control technology 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.

In the past, access control has sometimes been accomplished by something as simple as a lock and key. However, as technologies have advanced, newer forms of access control technologies have become more and more prevalent in the world of physical security. 

Access control technologies like card readers, RFID readers, and biometric identifiers like hand geometry scanners, IRIS scanners, and many more have been put in use. 

When a predetermined credential is presented to an access control reader, the reader sends the information to a database that then determines whether or not the individual is granted access to that location. 

Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) has installed a wide range of these access control technologies into our patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal and have delivered these perimeter security solutions to construction sites around the world.

MSSI: Access Control Turnstiles and the Key to Perimeter Security

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.
