Turnstiles & Access Control Technology in a Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal
 
Full height 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.

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: Patented MAC Portal Turnstile Units with Access Control Technology

At Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) the decisions we make about what access control technology to install in our patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals is left entirely up to our customers. In working with our customers to develop the appropriate portable perimeter security solution to meet their site-specific needs, we start by comparing various access control solutions with our customers.

We know that access control technology does not have a "one- size fits all" solution that will work for all of our customers, so we stay open to new access control technologies and how to integrate them into our portable turnstile solution, the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal.

The development of access control technologies has seen steady growth since the events of September 11, 2001 and new access control technologies are being developed every year. 

An access control point where various technologies can be implemented may be a door, a turnstile, a vehicle gate, or even an elevator, where granting access can be electronically controlled via the chosen access control technology. More often than not an access point is a door or a turnstile.

A turnstile integrated with an electronic access control technology like those found in the patented MAC Portal may contain several elements. At its most basic, there is a stand-alone electric lock. The lock is unlocked by a security guard with a switch or the push of a button, but automating this process with access control technology may replace the security guard. Access control readers such as card swipe systems, hand geometry readers, IRIS eye scanners, and many others can be used to identify individuals and allow them access to particular areas or locations. Typically, the reader itself does not make a decision to allow access, but sends the information it collects to a central system where the credentials are analyzed in less than a second, which then allows the turnstile to turn or stay in the locked position. 

In addition to securing a location, the patented MAC Portal with turnstiles and access control can also collect information for time-keeping and payroll purposes.

At MSSI we encourage all of our customers to carefully analyze various access control technologies to find the right product to integrate into a patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal, so don't be afraid to ask us for suggestions. Based on your site-specific needs, we will work with you to help develop the optimal onsite security solution.
