Metal Detectors (Security)

Security has become increasingly important at events and around specific locations. Security metal detectors play an important part in ensuring people are safe by detecting concealed weapons such as guns or knives. They are also useful in detecting foil wrapped drugs and precious metals associated with jewellery or antiques theft.

Security Metal Detector Types

There are two primary types of security metal detector used in public:

  1. Hand held metal detectors or security wands.
  2. Walk through metal detectors or knife arches.

Walk through metal detectors are typically found at airports, but increasingly they are being used in a variety of locations including public buildings, sports grounds and even in some schools and colleges. If a walk through detector indicates that something metallic has been detected on a person then security personnel will often use a hand held metal detector or security wand to locate the item. Although some walk through metal detectors, such as the Garrett PD6500i, can pinpoint where the detected metal object is located, security professionals will normally use a security wand to confirm the exact location on a persons body.
