Commercial Construction Looks to MSSI & the MAC-Lite for Site Security

Perimeter security for commercial construction sites is evolving, and to meet the demands of those changing needs, Modular Security Systems Inc. (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 the need of a smaller, more compact version of our patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal with full-height, high-security turnstiles, and access control integration. 

The MAC-1 Lite with one full-height, high-security turnstile weighs 1,300 lbs and is 6'7" (W) x 6' (L) x 7'11" (H).

The MAC-2T Lite with a tandem turnstile (two turnstile lanes) weighs 2,300 lbs and is 6' (W) x 8'11" (L) x 8'5" (H). 

Since the introduction of the first 4-turnstile MAC Portal in 2004, MSSI has developed a standard line of patented MAC Portals ranging from 1 to 10 turnstile units. Focused primarily on industrial construction customers, the dimensions, design, and portability was perfect fit. Then in 2009, our “V” Series MAC Portals combined multiple boxes together to create vestibules on either side of what can be considered a standard MAC Portal for the nuclear power industry. By adjoining additional boxes to create vestibules on either side of one of our standard MAC Portals a, completely climate-controlled version was created to help nuclear power companies meet the requirements of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.  

With new regulations like NYC Local Law 196, which requires commercial construction workers in NYC be up to date on safety training before entering a construction site, there is a big push for companies to secure their perimeters with access control technology and turnstiles.

Complete with either 1 or 2 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. 

This new line of MAC-Lite patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals can save any commercial construction project time and money over the life of the turnstile product.

MSSI: Patented MAC Portals from the Past Through Today

Posted by Miles Duncil on Fri, Jan 3, 2020

MSSI 01-03-2020B
 
Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) has been building patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals since its' inception in 2002. From then through today almost 1000 patented MAC Portals have been sent to locations across the US, Canada, and around the world. With 2020 upon us we'd like to look back at a couple of the first MAC Portals to secure perimeters on major industrial construction projects here at home. These MAC Portals were sold back in 2007 and have been in use through today. These portable perimeter security solutions with turnstiles, access control technology and climate controlled guard offices have been used for plant personnel and contract workers on site for many projects over the past 12 years.
 
Utilizing full-height turnstiles and access control technology, these MAC Portals have been able to secure the perimeter of the site while tracking employees time keeping records for payroll purposes.

Do you have an industrial or other major construction project that requires perimeter security and access control technology?

If so contact MSSI today to learn all about the Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. 

MSSI builds a wide range of units from simple guard houses to the most complex "multi-box" units. With anywhere from one turnstile lane all the way up to 10 turnstiles in a single box, MSSI is sure to have the turn-key portable perimeter security solution you need.

Each of our perimeter security products are designed, engineered, manufactured for easy installation, and built for years of reliable service. Our perimeter security turnstiles were created by incorporating full-height turnstiles into a shipping container with portable access control technologies like card readers, biometric readers, or RFID cards and can be used as a standalone access control system or be tied directly into an existing plant-wide access control system.

Recycle, Re-Use, & ReInvent the BOX with Modular Security Systems Inc.

Recycle, Re-Use, & ReInvent the BOX with Modular Security Systems Inc. 

Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) located in Worthington, Kentucky is doing its part to recycle, re-use, and re-invent the box. We re-use or recycle "one-trip" shipping containers that have completed their trip across the ocean bringing imports into the United States. After the goods from these containers are offloaded, the containers themselves are often stored in shipyards around the U.S. and may or may not ever be used again. Given the U.S. trade deficit, it is estimated that about 7 million shipping containers enter U.S. ports every year, and only about half of those containers are reused to ship exports out of the country. MSSI takes full advantage of the surplus of these one-trip containers by modifying them into our patented Modular Access Control (MAC), Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portals, and ground-level guard offices.

Our portable perimeter security products are then utilized on industrial and commercial construction sites to secure the perimeter and control employee/visitor access to these secure work sites. Built with turnstiles, vehicle barrier gates, climate-controlled guardhouses, and access control technology these re-purposed containers allow only authorized workers to enter the secure site. 

The recycling of these shipping containers is environmentally friendly and is a great example of how an otherwise wasted resource can be re-used. The recycled or reinvented boxes have proven to be far more durable and stronger than other stick-built structures that are typically used in conventional construction for construction site security.

Turn-key and easily put in use, the portable perimeter security solutions from Modular Security Systems Inc. have been used by major industrial and commercial construction companies like Fluor, Bechtel, Jacobs, Turner Construction, AECOM, Kiewit, Whiting-Turner, Skanska, and CB&I.

Perimeter Security MAC Portals Turnstiles & Access Control Technology

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.

More information on the patented MAC Portal can be found online at www.SecuredByMAC.com or CONTACT US HERE. You can also call us at 740.532.7822.

Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal Spotted in Kazakhstan

Posted by Miles Duncil on Tue, May 15, 2018

MSSI, MAC Portal, patented MAC Portal, Modular Security Systems Inc, custom perimeter security, physical perimeter security

Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) has delivered hundreds of patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals to a wide range of locations around the world. In more recent years the number of MAC Portals that are being delivered outside the U.S. has increased significantly. The combination of being awarded our patent in the European Union and our expert sales staff has led to this increase in overall sales. 

This week we'd just like to take the time to reflect on our success in supplying several portable perimeter security units to Tengizchevroil in Kazakhstan for one of the largest Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) processing plants being constructed in the world. The construction of refineries and pipelines in that country lead to the need for a significant amount of perimeter security and MSSI was there to meet the needs of its customer. 

Above is a picture of one of the patented MAC-4 units that were delivered to the site this year. In addition to this MAC Portal MSSI also delivered MAC-2 units and custom patented Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portals to the site.
