The new safety management product represents the evolution of PSG's Modular Access Control product line.

Portable Solutions Group has launched the MAC-Link, designed to be a “significant and revolutionary advancement” in construction turnstiles and safety management.

PSG partnered with United Rentals to deliver the flexible and lower-cost site access solution, enabling data capture and real-time reporting for workers on the site.

PSG has been a leader in the modular security sector, recognized for its patented turnstile and gate arm solutions. The MAC-Link represents the evolution of PSG's Modular Access Control (MAC) product line, bridging the gap between large-scale infrastructure projects and smaller, city-oriented construction sites, according to the company.

“We are excited to work with the PSG team and help bring an innovation to our customers that seamlessly connects people, equipment and data,” said David Scott, SVP, Specialty Operations, at United Rentals. “The MAC-Link solution is pivotal for our customers and the future of worksite safety.”

Compact yet robust, the MAC-Link features a minimal footprint of only 36 sq ft. Crafted from premium materials such as a galvanized steel frame, poly metal exterior, and grated floor, this unit offers durability while remaining lightweight for easy deployment in metropolitan areas.

The MAC-Link allows the linking of multiple units on-site to accommodate changing project phases. Through a simple daisy chain electrical/data line connection and an all-thread bolt mechanical connection at the base, the MAC-Link can be configured to meet the requirements of any construction site.

“United Rentals shares in our commitment to pursue continuous innovation that helps drive safe and productive worksites,” said Robert Slagel, president and CEO, Portable Solutions Group. “The MAC-Link is an innovative offering for jobsite safety management and through our partnership with United Rentals, we can deliver an important solution to help customers maximize performance and streamline productivity.”

The MAC-Link is set to debut in the second quarter.
