Handheld Metal Detection

Handheld Metal Detection

Handheld metal detectors are used both for primary and secondary security screening. They are used to detect concealed metal threats such as knives and guns but can also be used for asset protection. When used in conjunction with archway metal detection or walk by metal detection the handheld scanner is used after a person has triggered an alarm. The smaller handheld metal detectors can then be used to precisely find the metal object target that triggered the alarm. In the right situation handheld metal detectors can also be used for primary screening.

Handheld metal detectors are utilised in a wide variety of security applications and are used by the police, airports, prisons and event security.

Due to the nature of their use handheld metal detectors need to be easy to use, mobile and rugged.

My Group Security supplies handheld metal detectors that are manufactured by Garrett in the USA to the highest standard in quality and are already used throughout the UK.
