United Rentals partners on site access solution

United Rentals has partnered with US-based modular solution provider Portable Solutions Group (PSG) on MAC-Link, a safety management solution for construction site access.

Due to launch in Q2 of 2024, MAC-Link is an evolution of PSG’s Modular Access Control (MAC) product line of patented turnstile and gate arm solutions including restrooms, portals, vehicle access control gates and guardhouses. 

The new addition to that lineup, which is described by the company as compact yet robust, has a footprint of 36sqft and comprises a galvanized steel frame, poly metal exterior, and grated floor.

With connectivity features, it can link to several units on-site to accommodate changing project phases.

Meanwhile, a daisy chain electrical/data line connection and an all-thread bolt mechanical connection at the base means the unit can be configured to meet the requirements of any construction site, the company said.  

United, which has delivered the unit to its customer base, said the launch marks a “significant and revolutionary advancement in construction turnstiles and safety management.” 

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

Robert Slagel, president and chief executive officer, PSG, added, “United Rentals shares in our commitment to pursue continuous innovation that helps drive safe and productive worksites.

“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.”
