YAHUD, Israel, December 22, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ GM: MAGS) announced today that it received $1.7 million in three repeat orders in the last part of the year.

The first order is for the expansion of a current project at a major international airport in Asia, which includes a few kilometers of DTR, Magal's leading taut wire fence product; a few kilometers of buried cable (a virtual fence system) and an expansion of the airport's communication and surveillance equipment and associated infrastructure.

Another two orders are for upgrades and improvements in prisons - one in North America for $500K to design, supply and install inmate cell communication and guard tour systems and one in Israel.

The last order is for security equipment for a highly protected site with three existing PIDS layers; the current VMD (Video Motion Detection) layer will be upgraded to Magal's latest video solution - Maestro DB.

While much effort is invested in securing new projects and customers, our existing customer base is a top priority that deserves much attention."
