About this product

Do you need to screen people entering your premises for concealed weapons such as guns, and knives? My Group Security’s range of archway metal detectors are used to detect these concealed metal items, and even mobile phones, whilst keeping visitors to your site moving.

Walkthrough Metal Detectors, also known as Archway Metal Detectors use magnetic detection to identify metal items. These effective devices and are used for a variety of security solutions including highly secure areas such as airports and prisons, but increasingly are used at the entrances of public buildings and events venues.

Our range of Walkthrough Metal Detectors can be used as a stand alone unit, alongside handheld metal detection devices (also known as Metal Detection Wands) or as part of a wider security solution including x-ray detection to screen luggage and bags.

How do Walkthrough Metal Detectors work?

Walk through metal detectors use pulse induction (PI) technology to detect metal objects. These pulses are generated by a transmitter in each side of the archway creating an electromagnetic field. This magnetic field will be disturbed if a metal object moves through this area, and it is this disturbance that is used to trigger an alert.

Using a walkthrough or archway metal detector for security

Walkthrough or archway metal detectors are used at entrances to areas where visitors are entering or at exits if using to prevent theft from factories and warehouses. Visitors queue up and should have the ability to empty their pockets of metal objects that are not restricted, such as keys and coins, before walking through the archway.

If no metal objects are detected the visitor can continue on their way, but if an object is detected then an alert is triggered (either visual or audible) and the person can be stopped and a further investigation can be conducted.
