MSSI Secures Major Industrial Construction Projects Around the World

Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) and the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) have quickly become the perimeter security and access control staple for time and attendance at power, petroleum, and chemical plants across North America and around the world. Our turnkey MAC Portals with access control technology consist of climate-controlled guardhouses, high-security turnstiles, and customer-specified access control technology. In addition to turnstiles and access control our MAC Portals can also be fitted with other security features like surveillance cameras, metal detection and explosive detection equipment if site security requires that level of technology.    

The MAC Portal is a plug-and-play access control solution that comes equipped with state of the art ID verification like biometric iris scanners, fingerprint readers, palm readers or simple proximity card readers.  

Our customers choose MSSI and the patented MAC Portal because they can pick the type and level of technology that they would like installed in their MAC before it ships to their site. Rapidly deploy-able and turnkey installation is the natural fit for major industrial construction projects in a post-9/11 environment where thousands of military base camps and job sites need additional security.   

Many North American plants have contractor entry gates and contractor parking lots that are not equipped with turnstiles or the needed access control in place at those plant entry points. Our patented MAC portals are the perfect fit and are therefore in high demand for refineries, chemical plants and large construction sites around the world.

Although initially developed with site security in mind, our patented MAC Portals are also being used for managing payroll when loaded with access control technology with gate-to-paycheck software.  

Many industrial customers use the MAC Portal when a plant is “manning up” for a large capitol project or turnaround maintenance project and expecting an increase in manpower for a limited amount of time. 

MSSI has quickly developed an impressive list of customers such as Sunoco Petroleum, Sunoco Chemical, Citgo, Marathon Petroleum, the US Air Force, US 3rd Army, US Pentagon, Jacobs Construction, KBR, Haliburton, Fluor Constructors, CB&I, Northup Grumman, Washington Group, and many others.

MSSI & the Patented Turnstile in a Shipping Container

Posted by Miles Duncil on Tue, Dec 11, 2018

In 2004 Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) imagined the combination of access control technology, turnstiles, and the portability of a shipping container and used that imagination to create the now patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. In late 2008 MSSI received a Notice of Allowance by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the invention and has since received patents for the MAC Portal in The U.S., Canada, the European Union and a handful of other countries around the world.

The Patented MAC Portal was created by incorporating full-height turnstiles into a shipping container with portable access control technologies like card readers, biometric readers, RFID cards and can be a standalone access control system or be tied directly into an existing plant-wide access control system.

While the patented MAC Portal is the most convenient and effective access control solution available, not all projects are the same. And that is why MSSI offers a wide range of standard floor plans, custom designs, and two procurement options. The decision to purchase or rent a MAC Portal can be influenced by many different factors like length of the project, a company’s capital budget, depreciation vs. expense, etc. Regardless of your company’s financial situation, MSSI has the MAC Portal and procurement options to secure your site. 

Over the past decade semi trucks with flatbed trailers and roll-off trailers alike have made their way in and out of MSSI’s Worthington, KY, manufacturing facility to deliver our patented MAC Portal to customers on industrial and commercial construction sites around the world. Our turnstile, access control, and shipping container modifications have been utilized to secure every type of perimeter from industrial and commercial construction sites to nuclear facilities and military installations.

MSSI: 3 Signs You Should Invest in Turnstile Security Solutions

Posted by Miles Duncil on Tue, Jun 14, 2016

MSSI, turnstile security, MAC Portal, Turnstile, Turnstiles, patented MAC Portal, Modular Security Systems Inc, turnstiles in a container, access control turnstiles, turnstiles in a shipping container

Modular Security Systems Incorporated (MSSI) is the industry leader, providing portable perimeter security solutions in the form of the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. These turn-key perimeter security solutions come completely integrated with climate controlled guard houses, full height, high security turnstiles, and access control technology. In this week’s edition of the Turnstile Blog we will take a look at these turnstile solutions – and three signs that you should invest in them.

1) Do you need perimeter security? The first sign that you should invest in turnstile security solutions is the need for perimeter security. Job sites around the world need the ability to restrict access to their highly sensitive work spaces. From industrial and commercial sites to refineries, chemical plants, power plants (and beyond), only authorized individuals are wanted on jobsites. Given the inherent risk of injury at major construction sites, with their heavy equipment and constant movement, it has become paramount that only individuals with the correct credentials and training who know these risks and how to avoid them enter the work area.

2) Do you need to keep track of employees? Construction site employee tracking is becoming very popular with many construction companies in the United States. With the access control technology available in our Patented MAC Portal, companies have the ability track employees’ movement into and out of the jobsite using RFID cards and biometric access control technology. With the capabilities of these technologies, companies can easily maintain mustering reports and produce time-keeping and payroll records. 

3) Do you have problems with tool and equipment theft? Construction equipment is believed to be targeted by thieves because it is often poorly secured, easily disguised, and very expensive. Jobsites around the world lose millions of dollars per year in equipment theft and the lost time associated with replacing equipment on jobsites. The turnstile security in Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals secures entrances and exits, prohibiting the theft of tools and equipment.

Regardless of your jobsite, security is always a concern. Whether you need to keep unwanted people out of your work zone, you need to track employees for time-keeping and payroll, or you want to prevent the theft of tools and equipment, we believe the turnstile security provided by the Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal is the solution for you.
