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.

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.

Access Control and Turnstiles in a Turn-Key Security Solution

Some Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) customers prefer to have access control hardware and software pre-installed prior to the delivery of their patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. The ability to have card readers and biometric access control solutions already installed and ready to "plug and play" makes the patented MAC Portal the most flexible security solution with turnstiles and a guard office. Depending on your site-specific security requirements, the MAC Portal can come delivered with access control ready to be integrated into your existing access control infrastructure or act as a stand-alone unit.

At MSSI we get calls daily regarding custom access control options that can be integrated into our Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals. In addition to access control technology, MSSI has installed any number of other features including cold/extreme heat weather packages, exterior siding, restrooms, and ballistic packages to our MAC Portals.

When it comes to a portable perimeter security solution with turnstiles and access control technology, the patented MAC Portal is the most customizable, easily transportable solution in the security industry.

Traditional stick built guard houses with turnstiles and access control technology can take months if not years to design, engineer, build, and integrate. In comparison, MSSI can build and deliver a turn-key, ready to use MAC Portal with turnstiles and access control technology in as little as six weeks.

MSSI: MAC-Lite Rental Program for Commercial Construction Projects

Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) provides unique perimeter security solutions with turnstiles and access control technology on commercial construction sites around the world. Our core customer base has been built over the last decade by providing site-specific perimeter security solutions for commercial and industrial construction companies. Every perimeter security turnstile product we provide is driven by a commitment to provide quality products, excellent customer service, flexibility in design, and cost-effective solutions.

Recently MSSI completed construction on a new line of patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals specifically designed for the commercial construction industry. These new perimeter security solutions are much lighter than our traditional unit. These "MAC-Lite" units have been specifically designed to provide the same level of perimeter security as our standard MAC Portals but at a lower purchase and rental price.

While perimeter security on commercial construction sites is often limited to a fence, a more extensive physical security plan with turnstile access points for employees can dramatically improve the overall success of a construction project. A well thought out commercial construction perimeter security plan can serve as a valuable line of defense against many different construction project concerns.

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. We currently offer two MAC-Lite models, built with either 1 or 2 turnstile lanes and your choice of access control technology.

MSSI Introduces the MAC-Lite for Commercial Construction Projects

MSSI Introduces the MAC-Lite for Commercial Construction Projects

Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) recently completed construction on a new line of patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals for the commercial construction industry. We're calling these new perimeter security solutions the MAC-Lite. MAC-Lite Portals have been specifically designed to provide the same level of perimeter security as our standard MAC Portals but at a significantly reduced price.

At MSSI we know that many commercial construction projects are under strict budget constraints and often can't justify the price of a standard MAC Portal. With that knowledge, our engineering and design team has come up with this new simplified version of the MAC Portal. Excluding roll up doors, exterior/interior lighting, and replacing the standard steel walls with aluminum panels makes these patented MAC Portals much more affordable for customers in the commercial construction industry. 

While perimeter security on commercial construction sites is often limited to a fence, a robust physical security plan with turnstile access points for employees can dramatically improve the overall success of a construction project. If you are involved in planning a major commercial construction project, the work force, tools, and building equipment are likely consume much of your construction budget. However, a relatively small investment in perimeter security can provide significant protection to a project’s assets and reduce costs associated with loss of time, time theft, and insurance claims.

Proper commercial construction perimeter security solutions can serve as a valuable line of defense against many different construction project concerns. This new line of MAC-Lite patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals can save any commercial construction project time an money over the life of the turnstile product. 

We currently offer two MAC-Lite models, built with either 1 or 2 turnstile lanes.

Turnstiles in a BOX. The Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal

When it comes to protecting the perimeter of your construction site, whether it is industrial or commercial, not all solutions are the same. They don't look the same, they don't function the same, and they don't cost the same. The purpose of perimeter security is to provide not only a way to prohibit the entry of unwanted individuals, but also to allow authorized individuals access to your site. Effectively utilized perimeter security solutions like the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal can meet both of these needs seamlessly. 

While not all construction projects are the same, neither are our patented MAC Portal offerings. MSSI offers a wide range of standard floor plans, custom designs, as well as two procurement options which include sale and rental. Regardless of your construction project or your company’s financial situation, Modular Security Systems Inc. has the MAC Portal and procurement options you need to successfully secure your site. 

The key factor 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 MSSI 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. 

Our patented MAC Portals with full-height turnstiles and access control are highly durable and weather-resistant due to the use of high quality materials, sturdy steel construction, and engineering and design.

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.
